A vacation full of thrill rides, water slides, and shows is perfect for some but, for others, a vacation just is not a vacation if you do not get in a little fishing. Walt Disney World is a full service resort that seeks to cater to that desire by offering Guided Fishing Excursions. No, you will not be dropping your line into the big tank at Epcot's Living Seas exhibit – you will be spending two wonderful hours on the lakes of Walt Disney World Resort. And although the fishing is on a catch-and-release system, you will retain full bragging rights because digital photos are available. Each fishing excursion has room for up to five of your friends or family. Those who want first crack at the fish or to be able to join the rest of their family for a day at the parks can take part in a 7:00 a.m. excursion. Those who believe that getting up early is not compatible with vacationing can go on a 10:00 a.m. or a 1:30 PM excursion. Extended fishing excursions can be arranged, if desired.

The Fishing package includes:

· An Experienced Guide
· Use of the fishing rod and reel
· Tackle
· Bait
· Non-alcoholic Beverages
· One Year BASS membership

Cost: $270 per person. (Prices checked December 2015).  You do not need a Florida Fishing license because you are fishing on private property.
