    16 days! Other than at the Contemporary is there a place to go parasailing, Disney springs? and my daughter wants to get cornrows done, where can we find that? Thanks in advance!!

    Hello, Mandi,

    Your trip is nearly here; how incredibly exciting!  Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre at Disney's Contemporary Resort offers a variety of amazingly fun ways to enjoy time on the water at Walt Disney World: parasailing, tubing, wake boarding, water skiing, and personal water crafts.  However, these are limited to that location.  In Disney Springs, you can do something similar to parasailing at Characters in Flight...Operated by Xerophile, which is a tethered hot air balloon that goes 400 feet up into the air. Another unique opportunity is at The Boathouse where you can take a ride in an Amphicar, which is a car that drives right into the water!

    Hair wraps are available throughout many locations at Walt Disney World:  poolside at many resorts, Disney Springs, and the Magic Kingdom.  However, they aren't always permanent locations, so you may find them relocated to different areas at Walt Disney World. If you can't locate any when you visit, I'd stop by Guest Relations at any of the parks to ask for information. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  -Kara
