    hello to celebrate my daughters birthday we are considering letting her go parasailing at the contemporary (I believe thats where it is). She is turning 16. Is there an age limit? and How much will it cost?

    Deborah, what an awesome idea for a birthday surprise for your daughter's 16th birthday!  You have done your homework too as many guests have no idea that things like this are even offered at Walt Disney World!

    Parasailing is indeed done from the Contemporary Resort. Reservations are recommended and you can make these 90 days in advance by calling 407-939-0754.  There is also a 24 hour cancellation policy in place.

    There is actually an age limit and that age is five. Your daughter would be allowed to ride alone if you are present to sign a waiver for her at that time. She would also need to meet the minimum weight requirement of 125 pounds.  If she does not meet this weight then guess get to ride along with her in a tandem run!!!!  I know all about having to submit to this when my own daughter wanted to ride and was not up to weight.  Once I got up there it was rather peaceful and invigorating but before that happened I was thinking about all the things she was going to owe me for doing it with her.

    The pricing is determined on the height you wish to reach as well as the length of time and if you go single or tandem.  A single price for the 450' sail that lasts between 8-10 minutes is $95.00.  The price for the 600' sail that lasts between 10-12 minutes is $130.00.  To see the tandem pricing and other information concerning the parasailing experience please click HERE.  I hope you all have a great time and a great birthday vacation at Walt Disney World!
