The Island of Walt Disney World

I’m not sure what made me think of this, but after several minutes of rumination I realized that Walt Disney World is surrounded by water.  Every hotel is surrounded by lakes, lagoons, rivers or creeks.  At the parks, more of the same. plus two water parks.   Maybe it’s because water has a calming effect and the folks at Disney want everyone to be calm and relaxed while they’re there.  The better to help you forget about how much money you’re spending to have that relaxing vacation.

The first of my favorite bodies of water at the resort are Bay Lake, which surrounds the Magic Kingdom resorts of  The Contemporary, The Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge and the Campgrounds.  From the Walt Disney World website:

Walt Disney World Resort offers a fleet of motorized and non-motorized watercrafts for vacationers looking to make a splash.

Sea Raycers by Sea Ray® boats, sailboats, SunTRACKER® pontoon boats, Boston Whaler Montauk boats, pedal boats, kayaks and canoes are just a few of the available options for rent at various Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

And because you know that I am a Boardwalk Villas lover, Crescent Lake takes my breath away every time I visit.  It is a great lake for a morning walk, contemplation, people watching and relaxation.

Where do you like to spend your water-time at Walt Disney World?

  1. We just love travelling by the Friendships- we will take a bus to Studios and then the boat to Epcot and the Boardwalk- so relaxing!

    I really love Hourglass Lake at Pop Century. It’s a great area to walk/run around.

    Of course, Bay Lake Tower is my home resort so I do love Bay Lake as well. Especially parasailing there :)!

  3. The photos are so inviting… a permanent vacation would be a dream. 🙂
