PostSubject: To fish or not to fish?   Wed Jan 19, 2011 6:06 pm

I am a newbie to this board, but not a newbie to Disney. In fact, I live in central Florida. I have a young special needs child who isn't allowed to travel far from his doctors, so Disney is our vacation destination. We have an upcoming trip and for the first time since the late 1990's we are staying at Coronado Springs!

I also have a teenager who's life centers around fishing. I sent in a question to Disney, but in their answer they danced around my questions. I posed these questions to KatMark, who by the way, has been awesome at fielding my questions! She didn't know the answer either but thought maybe Buzz would. Here is the question I asked Disney and their response.

My questions:

May a guest bring their own fishing rod to fish at Coronado Springs Resort? What are the hours for fishing? Are there designated areas for fishing? My son has a Florida life time fishing license will he need to bring it with him? I assume it is catch and release? Thanks for answering all my questions!

And their response had nothing to do with CSR, lol.

welcome to the CSR Forum!

I believe John once told me that fishing from the banks at CSR is no allowed because of gators. You might be able to from the marina but I'm just guessing.

Thanks for the welcome and the link!!

I guess my best bet is to plan on the marina being closed. Maybe I can send my teen and husband over to East Lake Fish Camp one morning to bass fish. He is use to fishing with alligators. FF&W doesn't take gators out of retention ponds until they reach 4 feet long, so our retention pond often has gators, and the lake he fishes at the most has huge 13 feet gators. I, on the other hand am very unnerved by gators and prefer not to venture near the water!

More questions, I see from pictures there are courtyards at the casitas. May children play in the courtyards? My little son's medicine makes him sunburn quickly, and getting overheated makes him have seizures; and I was trying to think of places he could be outside in the shade. Is there any shade at any of the pools, maybe at certain times of the day? When we stayed at All Star Movies in December he did alot of lego buidling in the room. When we stayed at SSR in August he spent alot of time at the DVC community center. Would the casitas be the most shaded area since the buildings are so tall?

I believe that even though the marina is closed, the bass fishing excursions are still available at CSR. Not sure of the cost though.

Thanks for the number. Whoa!! Sticker shock! $270/boat of 2 guests and a guide for 2 hours either in the morning or afternoon, or $455 for 2 guests for 4 hours.

Called East Lake Fish Camp, I think it's about 30 minutes away. $45 to rent a boat for a half day (no guide-safe daylight til noon or noon to 6pm) or $75 from safe dawn to safe dusk. That's more in our price range!
