Marinas at three Walt Disney World Resort hotels will reopen later in August 2021 to resume pontoon boat rentals.

The marinas returning to operation are at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts.

Boats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from 11 am to 5 pm daily.

There is no word yet on the return of the smaller Sea Raycer boats.

Finally..... these will return tomorrow. Just the pontoons. Along with the return of the pontoons will be the return of fireworks cruises on them.

Did these ever return or has anyone heard of an opening date?

They are running late getting these back in order. Sorry. Exact reopening date has not yet been determined.

Anyone hear a date for these pontoons? The plan was to rent one on our august 2020 trip that got covid’d, and it would be cool if they had them back up and running during my trip next week.

Chance? Always. Likely hood? Low.

No chance for a new fleet?

Let's just say the fleet of those sailed to that big boat in the sky....

If they announced the Searacers were returning I’d book a trip tomorrow just for them, they are seriously my favorite thing in all of Walt Disney World. I can’t help but giggle the entire time we are on them and it’s a tradition that we rent them every time we go.

I hope the Mouse Boats / Sprite Boats return next.

Pontoon rentals were still available at the Grand Floridian, Polynesian and some other locations when the resort shut down in March 2020. There were other areas that stopped pontoon rentals way before covid but Disney still had some rental locations and it was Disney..... Correct. :)

Sammy Duval did the water sports at contemporary, but the rentals at the resort were/are operated by Disney and “hosted” by Mercury.
