    Chere Asked

    Allison - thanks for the parasailing info. Our daughter is bringing a friend along on our trip. If the two of them go parasailing but there is no room on the boat for me, is there someone on the boat who can take pictures of the girls for us? Thanks!

    Welcome back Chere!

    I contacted the awesome people at Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Hopefully there will be room for you on board to see your daughter and her friend during their parasailing adventures to take pictures but if not, no worries!  They offer a photo package in addition to the parasailing package.  They will take 30 - 50 pictures of your daughter and her friend taking off and landing from the boat.  They will also take some close up shots up them.  Of course, they will try to get some shots with the icons like the Contemporary Resort in the background (if possible) because they know you won't want to miss any of those magical moments. 

    They use a Cannon Rebel SLR digital camera with a 2 gig SD card.  At the end of the trip, they will give you the SD card to keep.  That way you can download the photos to your computer or camera and you have a free 2 gig SD memory card!  They also told me that if a family is parasailing, they can split the photo package over several flights for the same price.  For example, if your daughter and her friend fly together and then you fly, they will take pictures of all of you and you can share the same photo package - you won't each have to purchase a separate photo package.  That is a great value!  Currently, the photo package is only $25.00 but please keep in mind that prices are always subject to change.

    Guests are welcome to take their own cameras up during their flight.  We took ours up but also purchased the photo package so we would sure to get great pictures from all angles and we did!

    If you haven't already made reservations for your daughter and her friend, be sure to check out all They usually offer a discount for parasailing.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
