2. Smooth sailing in privacy
Private outings along the water always make for a peaceful, happy occasion, and at the various Walt Disney World Resort Marina locations you certainly have your pick of a wide range of watercraft rentals to choose from. For smaller gatherings there’s the Cruise Around the World option onboard a 25-foot pontoon. For this excursion, groups of 10 or fewer (captain included) embark at Disney Yacht Club Resort’s Bayside Marina for some well-deserved leisure time sailing along Crescent Lake and Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon. Guests can enjoy light assorted snacks and refreshments during the outing, or to make the experience extra exceptional there’s the option for private onboard dining that can be arranged for an additional fee. Another choice for celebrating on the seas is to book the one and only legendary Grand 1 Yacht. At an expansive 52 feet this luxury Sea Ray® Sedan Bridge Yacht can take groups of up to 17 or 18 guests (dependent on whether you are traveling with a butler) for a one-of-a-kind water wonder along Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. Dining is almost always a must in such a setting, and many guests like to book their excursions as an evening outing where they can take in fantastic views of the Magic Kingdom’s evening fireworks spectacular. While there are plenty of Specialty Fireworks Cruises for such happenings around Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot, sometimes a special occasion calls for a more private, intimate outing with loved ones.
