    Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays to all!
    Me,mywife and my two fourteen year old daughters are going down in March we were their about five years prior.
    We signed on for the fishing trip last time and it was $200.00 for two hours, guide, boat and bait. The fishing area was internally in the park and we had a great time but afully short.
    I am looking for another fishing option with a guide, boat etc. were me and my family would feel comfortable with the guide spending maybe four hours fishing and approximately one hour drive time from the park.Any help would be appreciated.

    Any other suggestions? Keneddy Space Ctr, Sea World?
    Thank You!

    The space port is excellent and a well kept secret. Sea World is also good but will not be allowed to fish. The needle is a great ride where you can see a lot of the area. For fresh water fishing, Google "guide fishing Lake Toho, Kissimmee, Fl." Kissimmee is just south of Disney. The correct way to say it is "Ki-ssimm-ee". Most yanks want to say "Kiss-i-mmee". That is a great fresh water lake. Big bass and speckled perch (or crappie as some call them. Daytona and Cape Canaveral both offer excellent salt water fishing. You can chose bay fishing for reds and trout or deep water. A head boat charter in blue water is a little cheaper than a captain with a single party boat. The cost of the fishing will be a bit more than the local Disney trip though. Let me know how the trip turns out.

    I live on the East coast of Florida. The Space Center is a great place to visit if you're into the whole NASA/space thing. VERY interesting,entertaining, and educational. As far as fishing, I would suggest you investigate a trip with a guide for either Inshore species( Trout, Redfish, Snook) or Offshore( Sea conditions permitting). Heck...you can "Bass-fish" anywhere. The Mosquito Lagoon/Banana River areas offer some fabulous fishing for species you won't find many other places, and offshore...well, that's why I'm here...That's a whole other world..!!
    Whatever you choose....ENJOy..!!

    If you plan on a visit to the Space Center, get on line and purchase tickets for the guided tours they offer.

    Highly recommended. You will get more out of the visit.

    If you try to purchase tour tickets at the gate, a good possibility there will not be any available for that day as they limit the number of guided tours.

    Your family may enjoy this when in Orlando...

    If you are staying 5 plus days you can save a lot of money by renting a condo. Check out www.redweek.com.

    As I remember, the various gift shops used to give a 10% discount if you paid via American Express.

    I just got back (took the 2 daughters and 2 grandkids) on 12/10. We stayed at a cabin in the Fort Wilderness area. The cabin had a queen sized Murphy Bed in the LR and a double and bunk beds in the bdrm. Large refrig, stove, microwave and all cookware. It was nice to have breakfast (plus snacks/drinks at night) there and then head out to the different parks.

    One hazard to look out for is the the Lame, Lazy and Obese on the rent-a-scooters....they clog the lines, slow the buses and generally just get in the way ( I always feel bad for the truly infirmed/disabiled, but it was obvious these people ate their way into their problem) plus the obnoxious daycare kids....

    Get to know and use the "Fast Pass" feature at the more popular rides.
