    We are staying at WL and my husband and 16yr son want to go fishing, can they fish from the beach area or do they need to sign up for the fishing excursion? Does anyone have any recommendations regarding the excursions?

    Hi Jennifer,

    The easiest way for me to answer this question is to copy and paste one of my other answers I have given to someone else regarding this exact same question.  I believe I have covered most of the information regarding fishing excursions at Walt Disney World and I hope you find it helpful!

    There are 2 different types of "fishing excursions" located at Walt Disney World.   One is a 2 hour fishing excursion for you and a group of up to 4 other guests on a "Bass Boat" and the other is a minimum 2 hour excursion using a "Pontoon Boat" (there are extended excursions available as well).  Please visit the above link for more information about current pricing and available locations, or call: (407) 939-BASS(2277). 

    All Walt Disney World Resort Guided Fishing Excursions include:  An experienced guide, Rod and reel, Tackle, Artificial and live bait, Beverages, and a One year BASS membership!

    This is Bass fishing on a "catch and release" program, just so you are aware.  If you really want to experience something fun and a bit more budget friendly, they do offer "Dockside Fishing" at:  

  • Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds
  • Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside

    This is on a "first come, first served" basis.  You will head to the Marina and sign up.  Then you will receive your "Cane Pole" (for a fee of $4.00-$10.00 approximately, as I was told by a Cast Member in February "2008").  You will have to purchase bait (they do have strict requirements on which bait can be used whether it is live or artificial bait!).  I suggest you weigh the pros and cons of both options and decide on the one that best suits your family.  Have a great trip and don't forget your sunscreen.

    Best wishes,
