Disney’s Wide World of Water Sports

Last week we found out that Typhoon Lagoon is a great place to hang 10 with the waves, but there is another lagoon in Walt Disney World that offers up a whole slew of water sports for your whole family. Where, you ask? Seven Seas Lagoon, right outside of Magic Kingdom, and it’s adjoining Bay Lake! Sammy Duvall’s Water Sports Centre, located at the Contemporary Resort Marina, invites you to have all the fun you can splash up in Walt Disney World.

*Note Sammy Duvall’s Water Sports Centre requires all those 18 and under to have adult permission and an adult must be present when any/all waivers are signed.


Take a solo ride, or ride with a friend, at least 450 feet above the lake for a bird’s eye view of Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Deluxe Resorts. You must be five years or older to ride with weight  requirements between 125 lbs – 330 lbs. Flights take place seven days a week, weather permitting, between 9:00-4:30 in summer seasons, and 10:00-4:30 in winter seasons. Pricing is as follows:

Single Flights :

Regular – $95+ tax per flight (8-10 minutes at 450 feet)

Deluxe – $ 130+ tax per flight (10-12 minutes at 600 feet)

Tandem Flights:

Regular – $170+ tax per flight (8-10 minutes at 450 feet)

Deluxe – $195+ tax per flight (10-12 minutes at 600 feet)

Water Sports!

If feeling the wind in your hair and catching air on the wakes is more your style, then Sammy Duvall’s got you covered. Snag a boat that can hold up to five guests and water ski, wakeboard, kneeboard, and tube to your hearts’ delight. Pricing is as follows:

$85 + tax: 30 minutes

$165 + tax: One hour

$185 + tax: Premium Trip includes pick up and drop off for Bay Lake Resorts

Personal Watercraft!

Last, but not least, in the waters of Walt Disney World you can take a guided or non-guided excursion on your own personal wave runner! Wave runners hold up to three guests with maximum weight limit 400lbs. You must be 16 or older and contain a valid driver’s license and photo ID to drive the wave runners. Pricing is as follows:

$135 + tax: One Hour guided excursion

$80 + tax: 30 minutes non-guided

So what do ya think? Would you ever consider taking a day off from the parks to set sail and splash around in Disney’s Seven Seas Lagoon? There really is no end to the amount of fun you can have on your next WDW vacation…it’s all up to you!
