What’s more relaxing than enjoying the waterways of Walt Disney World? Many take a resort day to escape the crowds, but we like to board one of the many water craft, available at no cost, and chart a course!
Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are sharing fun things to do at Disney on non-Park days.
Hi Ho and it’s a pirate’s life for me! Well, not actually a pirate’s life, more like a passenger’s life!
Come aboard this post and enjoy the views of Walt Disney World from a different perspective:
Here we are aboard one of the many Water Taxis that take passengers from one resort to the next on the Seven Seas Lagoon. You can visit Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa (pictured above), Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground. And of course, ending up at The Magic Kingdom.
While on route, you can enjoy beautiful vistas and view your favorite attractions from unique angles, such as Space Mountain, above. Also above you can see one of the smaller water craft that you can rent for personal tours of the lake.
Seeing structures like the Contemporary from the water side is a rare treat, complete with a monorail sighting if you time things just right!
Above is a view of one of the Water Taxis arriving at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground.
Sometimes you can see older attractions, or what’s left of them, such as this landing from the old River Country water park. The above picture was taken in 2008 so I wonder how much of this scene is left now.
Ferryboats run from the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) across the Seven Seas Lagoon to the entrance of The Magic Kingdom. You could take the monorail, but that wouldn’t be as wet!

Other vessels also ply the waterways:
No matter which option you choose, the fun is the same! As hinted at earlier, you can also rent jet skis, paddle boats, canoes, and other water craft for solo or group adventures.
And when the day is done, you will be treated to some of the most breathtaking images you can imagine!
So who’s with me? Will you take to the waters on your next non-Park day?
