    We will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside summer 2017. I understand Port Orleans use to rent Sun Tracker Pontoon boat. However, this activity is not listed under the PO Riverside Activities webpage. Is this activity still available at PO Riverside?

    Hi, William!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Unfortunately, the marina and boat rentals at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- Riverside closed permanently in March of 2014. However, there are still plenty of activities to choose from at my favorite Disney Resort hotel! There is The Fishin' Hole, campfires, horse-drawn carriage rides, movies under the stars, and bike and surrey rentals, among others! If you really have your heart set on renting a pontoon boat, might I suggest a visit to one of the following Disney Resort hotel marinas?

    -Disney’s Contemporary Resort
    -Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
    -Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
    -Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
    -Disney’s Yacht Club Resort 

    At these Disney Resort hotels, you can rent a Sun Tracker Pontoon boat that seats up to 10 Guests.

    I hope you have a most magical time at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort-Riverside. Make sure to check out the musical stylings of Yehaa Bob Jackson at River Roost Lounge while you are there! My mom and I had a blast singing along last summer!
