Take a break from the parks and cruise around in a Sea Raycer.
Sea Raycers by Sea Ray are two seater minipowerboats. They are available at any of the marinas in Walt Disney World.
Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake have largest areas to navigate. You get a great view of the Contemporary, Polynesian and Grand Floridian Resorts. Not only that but you get a completely different perspective of Magic Kingdom. You can cruise by the front gate and take in a different view of Cinderella Castle. This can be a wonderful romantic activity.
The price as of Sept 09 is $32 plus tax for 30 min. (Disney is currently running a promotion for 2010. When you buy a Magic Your Way package you get a voucher for 30 additional minutes free when you rent a Sea Raycer for 60 minutes).
