Family bicycles at the Boardwalk

    Hi! We are visiting French Quarter for the first time over Thanksgiving break! We would like to sleep in one morning and take a ride on a surrey bike. What time do they start renting bikes? We have a lunch reservation at Grand Floridian at 11:30. Thanks!

    Hi Alisia!

    Taking advantage of Disney Resort hotel amenities is something we have really been trying to do more of in the last 5 years or so and renting the surrey bikes is one of the best activities offered!  My family took a nice surrey bike ride around Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort last month and really had a good time.

    Surrey bikes at Disney's Port Orleans Resort are rented at Riverside Levee Marina, so you'll have to walk from French Quarter over to Riverside to rent a bike.  They open at 9:00AM and are first come, first served.  Bikes are rented by the half hour and then additional charges apply if you run over that initial 30 minutes.  

    Surrey bike tip: If you're approaching any kind of an incline, start pedaling to get momentum ahead of time.  We got stuck at the bottom of a little hill because we weren't going fast enough to get to the top.  We all had a good laugh though!

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
