Have you done the bikes or the boats?

We were talking about the Boardwalk vs. Beach Club villas and how it can be fun to stroll the Boardwalk. I was wondering if anyone has ever done the tandem bike things there or ever used the boats at any of the resorts. The bikes always look like fun, but we've never sprung for them. Has anyone ever done them? Does anyone want to?

Wife & I did the tamdem bicycles at the Boardwalk when we were there in 08 and it was fun. But be warned you had better get a good head start when going up and over the bridge at the Dolphin end of the circuit. :>)

ForGET it! That hill is awful! I definitely need a third (or even a fourth) person to get over that hill. Kudos to you and DW... you must have muscles I've never heard of laugh

Who wants to get exercise at WDW? laugh

We have done the little boats on Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon and that was a hoot. Expensive though.

Agreed, we get enough just walking round the parks.

The little boats look like a lot of fun, but kinda pricey when added on top of what you're already paying for a WDW vacation. Some day, when money is no object, I'd like to give them a try.

I think the boats always represented a "relaxing Disney vacation" to me. It seemed that the only people who had time to use them were the ones who weren't pressed for time in the theme parks...which meant they were relaxed (at least in my head!). So taking the boats out for a ride connects neurons in my head that tell me I'm relaxed!

So, yeah, I like the boats! ;-D

That puts a whole new spin on it for me, Admin!

The price is a bit of a turn off. Especially when I've already paid for a ticket to a park that I could be going to. But it is a novel experience. Better on a longer trip though. Wouldn't want to miss out on a usual in exchange.

Definitely not an every trip kind of thing IMO.
