    Is it possible to do a fishing excursion launching from Old Key West? When I called to make reservations, the CM stated the system kicked the ADR to Port Orleans Riverside. Also, I cannot see the fishing ADR on MDE. Will it not show up there?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Christina. Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    A day fishing at Walt Disney World sounds like so much fun. There are several Walt Disney World Resort Hotels that offer this excursion including Disney's Old Key West Resort. However, some are on a boat and some are dockside like Disney's Port Orleans Resort -Riverside

    Here is the list of hotels that you can fish from a boat:

    Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
    Disney's Contemporary Resort
    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    Disney's Old Key West Resort
    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside
    Disney's Wilderness Lodge
    Disney's Yacht Club Resort

    Here are the resorts that offer dockside fishing:

    Fishin' Hole at Ol' Man Island at Disney's Port Orleans Resort – Riverside
    Bike Barn at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

    So depending on what you wanted to do could be why your reservation was switched to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. If this were not what you were intending, I would call back and see what other hotels have fishing availability.  You can call 407-WDW-FISH and a friendly Cast Member will be more than happy to assist you. 

    Christina, after you've gotten your fishing expedition all squared away, it won't automatically show up in your MyDisneyExperience account as this isn't able to be linked like other reservations. If you'd like to show up there, you'll have to manually add it as a note. 

    I hope you are able to get your day of fishing set up the way you would like it. If you have any other questions about this, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
