Several Walt Disney World Resorts To Eliminate Boat Rentals On March 2nd

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The 3rd-party company that runs Sea Raycers, mouse boats, and pontoon rentals at Walt Disney World has decided that they will no longer provide these vessels at rental locations at Port Orleans – Riverside, Disney’s Old Key West Resort, Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort starting tomorrow, March 2nd, 2014.


According to sources, these locations were under-performing and the company has decided that it no longer made sense to operate them.

All other watercraft rentals around Walt Disney World will continue to be available.

Darn! We always rent the mice when we stay at Old Key West (“OKW”). But now that I think about it I can’t remember the last time I stayed at OKW. We like to drive the mice around Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon the best when we stay at Bay Lake Tower and Villas at Wilderness Lodge. If they take them away from this area by the Magic Kingdom, then I will really be disappointed.
