Parasailing in Walt Disney World

In July my daughter and I were able to go parasailing on Bay Lake.


Sammy Duvall’s Watersports is located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. They offer more than just parasailing; they also offer water skiing, personal water crafts & tubing



We had the deluxe package flying 600 foot above the World. We were on Bay Lake on a state of the art parasailing boat. The boat allowed us to take off and land right on the back of the boat. We flew the tandem flight. This allowed us to see Cinderella’s Castle, The Polynesian, the Grand Floridian and the surrounding area, with a bird’s eye view. This was so peaceful and intoxicating. The 10-12 minutes flying like a bird with the wind in my face with my daughter next to me, was one of the most amazing things we have ever done together.


When we arrived, we signed in and filled out our Liability Forms. All minors need to have a parent or guardian to sign them in. My husband was also able to sign a Liability Form so that he could ride the boat with us. He didn’t get to fly, however he was there cheering us on. To fly tandem you must be between 130 and 330 lbs. Thank goodness we made it.


The Captain and the First Mate prepared the boat and we headed out. Wearing exactly what we had on in the parks, we were fitted for a harnesses and life jacket. The First Mate gave us our safety rules and guides so that we were safe for the entire experience. The First Mate secured us into our harness and off we went. It was smooth rising into the air. When we reached 600 foot, the Captain drove us around Bay Lake and we were truly amazed. We giggled and laughed like two school girls. Pointing out everything we saw. When it was time to come down it was just as smooth as the takeoff.


I would totally suggest this to anyone who has 30 minutes to spare during your vacation. By purchasing the photography package, I received a memory card with the entire experience to share with everyone.

Disney’s Deluxe Villa Resort- Bay Lake Towers

In October, my family and I were able to stay in a 2 bedroom deluxe villa with a Magic Kingdom view. This room was amazing. The room offers sleeping arrangements for up to 9 people. The room includes 1 king, 2 queens, 1 queen-size sleeper sofa & one sleeper chair. Also in the deluxe villas there is a full size kitchen fully equipped and ready for use. These villas have 3 full bathrooms and a Jacuzzi tub. By having 4 females and one male the 3 were perfect. This room is also large enough that you can drive a scooter right in & plug it up for charging if you have one.

You will not be disappointed in this room the magical view it provides is breath taking. Waking up to the sight of Cinderella’s Castle and the monorail right outside your window. At night the TV offers the sounds of Wishes the Magic Kingdoms firework display. You are able to watch the fireworks right from one of the 2 balconies in the room.

Bay Lake offers a Mickey shaped pool with a waterslide and Cove Bar only for Bay Lake Tower guests. There are many activities such as Bocce Ball, shuffle board, & Tennis courts. There is also beach access to Seven Seas Lagoon.

Bay Lake does not offer counter service or table service dining; however there is a breezeway located between Bay Lake Towers and The Contemporary where you can enjoy three sit down dining locations and a counter service location. The Contemporary offers plenty of shopping and a bar for when you return from a long day at the parks. This is also where you will board the monorail.

You are just a short walk to the Magic Kingdom Park. From there you have monorail service to Epcot and bus transportation to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studio’s. It is nothing like waking up early in the morning and being one of the first guests at the Magic Kingdom. If you arrive before park opening you will be able to see the opening ceremonies performed every morning that includes multiple characters.
