I am the only girl in a house of all males. I say that because sometimes the things we do on vacation, may not always be my favorite activity.
In the summer of 2015, we went to Disney World and didn’t do the parks. There is so much to do at the resorts, I found my boys always asking to go fishing, rent a little boat, watch the movie on the beach, roast marshmallows, play ping-pong, swim a little longer, or hang out in the activity center. This was the trip I could say, “Yes!” to any of those requests. We didn’t have fastpasses, or dining reservations to get to. This was the relax and enjoy the resort trip.
Disney offers guided fishing trips that are amazing! We went one morning. The boys had a blast. Our captain met us at the Contemporary marina. He had life jackets, bait, rods and reels, all the needed fishing gear, beverages – everything you could need. Once we were on the water (Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon), he put bait on the hooks for us. When we caught a fish, he took the fish off the hook. If the fish were not biting where we were, he would start up the boat, and find better spot. We caught enough fish to keep my boys entertained and busy reeling them in! Whether you are an expert fisher-person, or have never been fishing this is the way to go. The boat ride was relaxing, and the views enjoyable.

That smile! I want to set up experiences like these for my kids, too. We love making memories like these.
I didn’t realise there was so much to do outside of the parks! We are thinking of going here before too long and it looks like I will have to add some extra days to our itinerary. It’s nice to break up the parks with other activities.
