Any place on Bay Lake or Seven Seas Lagoon gives you about 400 acres of water to play on. DW and I rented from the WL marina; it wasn't very crowded and the CMs were very nice. My observations from the water were that WL and Poly seemed to be the least crowded.

Parasailing is available at the Contemporary only. I never tried it... scared of heights.

These boats, on the seven seas lagoon, are faster than the others found around WDW, correct?

Parasailing: Uniquely designed boat enables take-off and landing from the back of the boat, not from the water! Solo fliers must weigh a minimum of 100 pounds.

Single Flight:
Regular: $90 per flight (8-10 minutes at 450 feet)
Premium: $ 112.50 per flight (10-12 minutes at 600 feet)

Tandem Flight:
Regular: $140 per flight (8-10 minutes at 450 feet)
Premium: $162.50 per flight (10-12 minutes at 600 feet)

Waterskiing and Wakeboarding:

(Prices are per boat for up to 5 guests)

½ hour: $80; walk-ups only
Hourly: $140 for up to 5 guests
Premium: $165, minimum of two hours, includes pick-up.


and yes the ones on 7 sea lagoons the sea raycers are the faster ones and younger teens i believe can still drive the water mice form a few locations like downtown disney I think.

Jet skis are only available from the contemporary and allow you to use a limited area of the lake. It is run by the same company as parasailing (Sammy Duval)

Are these the prices for the water mice??
I'm really confused, but really interested in doing this when I go down.

Sea-Raycers (Water Mice) are $22/per half hour per boat.

You can get the "Captain's plan" of 4 hours for ~$140 or a "Family" plan which is a length of stay plan for ~$280. I think it is up to 4 boats at a time under the plans.

The family and captain's plan can be used for both bicycles and boats, and include Pontoon boats and a few others.

I am thinking of looking into the 4 hour plan when I get down there.

The price you quoted from was for the wakeboarding/waterskiing rental - that is the boat with driver/instructor and equipment.

Water mice (the little speedboats you drive) are about $25/half hour.

Jet skis are something like $70-90/hour.

Hi, I was thinking of trying out the sea racers for the first time. We are staying at POR and thought about renting the sea racers there. Are there any reasons why we should use sea racers at another location such as Poly or an Epcot location instead of POR? It is just 6 yo DGS and I and I don't plan on being a speed demon daredevil.

Thanks for any info!

Tink
