There are a number of fishing excursions available; some on Disney property and some offsite in the Orlando area.  Here are some of the choices available:  

It is possible to just rent a canoe for the day (at Fort Wilderness, and other resorts), and throw in a line.  This costs less than an excursion, and you're not on a schedule.  Here is a link to some current boat prices at WDW.

These are the Disney property fishing excursions, which can be reserved up to 60 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-PLAY (939-7529).

Here are some links to info about off-site fishing: These tend to be less expensive than Disney's guided fishing tours; however, you will need to obtain a Florida fishing license for all off-site fishing.  You can call this toll-free number to obtain a license over the phone: 1-888-347-4356. 

Most Charter and Party boats include the license as part of the trip.  Be sure to ask.

Florida's new law does require everyone fishing from the shore in saltwater to now have a license (updated Aug 2009).

There is a processing fee charged in addition to the license cost for using this service.   You can purchase freshwater and saltwater fishing licenses at most bait and tackle shops, discount retail, and sporting goods stores.

We offer deep sea fishing trips out of Port Canaveral, as well as the option of Daytona or Sebastian. Cruising at 30 to 35 mph, we spend less time traveling and more time fishing. Bottom, Trolling, Drift, and Sight fishing are all options.
