fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Lovely evening on the boat working with the group to paddle out to see amazing nighttime views of the city.
We headed out on the shockingly tiny canoe (that held 12 people!) powered by our own strength and knowledge of Disney songs. Our guide provided instructions (through Val the translator-extraordinaire!) and we rowed out into the darkness. The views were great (although must of us didn't have our phones for fear of losing them in the water). We made it all the way under the bridge where the views were unmatched! We each got a bottle of water on the boat and a snack. After a quick break, we rowed back to the beach. The hardest part was getting the boat in and out of the water. Prepare to get your feet/legs wet as you climb in and out of the boat in the water.
