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.

Sailboats Too!

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?

I have been blogging about Disney since 2007, contributing to several sites and also hosting my own site called Disleelandia. I have since rebooted that site and relaunched it as Disney Nouns. I love Disneyana, the Parks, and finding obscure Disney references!

  1. […] Enjoy the Waterways with Cool Nouns […]

  2. We enjoyed several of the waterway transportation boats on my last trip. Such a relaxing way to get around and I liked that I didn’t even have to take a napping baby out of her stroller on several of the boats.

  3. At WDW, I find myself looking for any reason I can find to jump on a boat! It is always such a stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the parks, and a much needed mental break! Great post!

  4. I love using the boats at WDW. The Ferryboats to the Magic Kingdom are way more relaxing than the monorail. The Friendship Boats are another fave. They may be slow but sometimes that’s a good thing!

  5. I love taking the boats! It was one of my favorite parts of my day when I stayed at Fort Wilderness. I also love taking the boat at Disney Springs. So relaxing!
