    please can you tell me if i need a adults need to wear a life jackets when doing Kayak , Disney pedal boats, Motorized Boat and canoes is there a hamlets as well if so are there a must or not


    Rules can change, so this is based on personal experience. But as I understood it, every passenger is required to HAVE a life vest with them when on a boat. Note that I said HAVE, not WEAR. In addition, all children aged 12 and under are required to WEAR a life vest the whole time. Disney provides life vests when you rent a boat. As for helmets, I have never seen them provide these, so I don't think they are either required, or an option, unless of course you bring your own.

    BOTTOM LINE: Children 12 and under must wear vests at all times, adults have to carry a vest with them, but can decide if they wear it or not. Rules could change, but that is what I experienced recently.

    Have a magical vacation!
