WDW Trip Report Day 4: Guided Fishing Excursion

If you have ever wanted to go on a guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World I will present you with some knowledge. It can be a fun in the sun adventure if you love to fish and the outdoors. You typically wake up at 9AM and meet up with your guide at the resort around 10AM and off you go, the resorts vary.

Contemporary Resort Docks

This time we met up at the Contemporary Resort Docks.

They go over a few basic rules then you launch out. I’ve been three times on this excursion. The first two times were awesome, the feeling of being VIP cruising through Seven Seas Lagoon and around the resorts is amazing and refreshing while in Florida.

Screw the fishing guide, I wanted to go on a mini jet boat so bad!

Our last adventure our guide Sean was a total asshole, don’t know how he even has this job. If you get a good guide everything is awesome and fun, usually they bait your hook, help you cast, teach you the good spots, etc. This guy was like a lazy piece of shit who didn’t say or help worth a shit, and then when we asked he was just was so apathetic it was useless to even bother. However we still had a great time. It costs around $300 for 2-5 people for 2 hours and then your suppose to tip your captain as well. Check out the photos below for the fishing adventure.

WDW Trip Report Day 2: 1900 Park Fare & Magic Kingdom

floridian

Headed into the Grand Floridian for breakfast

So day 2 at WDW starts at the Grand Floridian for breakfast at the 1900 Park Fare. Being gluten free Disney is good at any place, but why here? Well we had kids this trip and this is the hottest breakfast spot currently according to reservations/tripadvisor etc. The character breakfast is also on point and the characters make a good round, the food was also pretty good. Not as good as Crystal Palace but good. Also a quick tip, it’s easy to navigate the parks since we had a reservation here, we got to park here and jump on the monorail straight to the parks which makes it super easy.

Such a scenic spot to chill at and check out.

Quick parking lot magic band power up before entering.

Chillin Trail Series: Big Dam Bridge

So I’ve recently started to slowly workout, take on trails, bike rides, adventures, etc. I pretty much document the new trails and parks I discover and will be posting them here. The first trail I found on my “All Trails” app was Big Dam Bridge few miles from me and decided to give it a go. This is not so much a trail as walking over a bridge, but here’s about the bridge:

Originally intended to be called Murray Bridge, the Big Dam Bridge in Arkansas spans the Arkansas River and Murray Lock and Dam between Little Rock and North Little Rock and is open only to pedestrian and bicycle traffic. At 4,226 feet (1288 m) in length it is the longest pedestrian/bicycle bridge in North America that has never been used by trains or motor vehicles. It rises to 90 feet (27 m) over the Arkansas River and 30 feet (9.1 m) over the dam. The span over the river is 3,463 feet (1055 m), with the ramps on either side of the river accounting for the rest of the length.
