Running(?) All Over Walt Disney World!

Wow!  Between Disney Springs and Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, I certainly have been running us all over Walt Disney World the last few weeks!  I need a rest!

Actually, let’s stop to breathe for a few minutes and review this week’s poll results, OK?  On Monday, we tackled pizza.  Yum.  Are you as big of a pizza fan as me?

Well, we visited the BoardWalk Pizza Window.  About 56% of you have tasted their cuisine, and the vast majority rank it as a 3 or 4 on a scale from 1 to 5.  That’s above average, at least!

When pressed, you’d prefer to sample either their Pepperoni or Signature pizza!  It was too close to call, really.  The poll is still open, my friends.  Click back to this link to register your opinions!

Yesterday, we bounced over to Disney Springs to enjoy Walt Disney World’s newest creperie – AristoCrêpes!  After perusing a menu that provides both savory and sweet options, we made our selections!

Talk about split decisions!  On the savory side, the results were, more or less, dead even!  I hear good things about their Beef Crepe.  The voters slightly preferred the Turkey Crepe.

For our sweet tooth, the results were spread across the board, as well.  Everything but strawberry seems to catch your fancy.  This poll is still open, too, folks.  Access it here!

As much as you see me cover the best of Disney’s food and drink, Mrs. All in WDW and I also focus a good portion of our visits on exercise.

Daily walks about property are our preferred physical activity, and, whether it be through the parks or around the resorts, options for enjoyable, relaxing, scenic strolls are plentiful.

I have begun to compile my own favorite “courses” through property, and I thought I’d share the detail.  Behold, the beginning of my collection of “maps”!  Not exhaustive, but quite useful.  Enjoy … and get walking!

At Crescent Lake? Go Boating From The Bayside!

When it comes to outdoor sporting and recreational activities, Walt Disney World is loaded with options.  In fact, in reality, there are probably more opportunities for fun than most Guests will ever be able to imagine!

Oh, you can find the more ordinary of activities, of course.  Swimming in one of Disney’s fantastically-themed pools, for instance.  Most resorts own tennis courts.  You can even find places to play basketball or volleyball!

Then, there’s golfing, of course (pun intended).  Several locations provide a chance to fish.  Fort Wilderness hosts the ability to engage in archery, canoeing, and kayaking.  You can go running and walking, most anywhere!

Plus, if you want to, you can even get a bit more extreme!  At Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, you can reserve an opportunity to go parasailing, tubing, wake boarding, or water skiing.

For today, however, we’re going to keep it on the “tame” side.  Just outside Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, and right on Crescent Lake, you’ll find Bayside Marina.

Have you ever wanted to “captain” a powerboat across Crescent Lake?  Then, Bayside is your spot.  Look at the multitudes of watercraft!

Of course, this great opportunity comes at a bit of a price.  Starting at $32, there are a number of options to choose from among.  From Sea Ray to Boston Whaler, from 30 minutes to 4 hours, from treasure hunts to fishing excursions, they have it!

Of course, they also rent bikes for a more nominal $9 to $18 fee.

A bit of a cost on all of these, my friends, but, oh, so much fun!

How about you?  What outdoor sporting and recreational activities do you engage in on every trip to The World?  Which one of the above activities do you long to try?  Have you ever rented a watercraft?

Let us know your feedback!  We’d love to hear it!
