    I always see the boats going from one side of the World Showcase Lagoon to the other, but we have never been on one.

    So, has anyone here been on and do you use it as a quick way to get from one side of World Showcase to the other or just for a sit down and relax?

    We've probably done it a million times- when we are tired or just don't want to make that walk. I wish there was a fast way to get from the back of the park to the front gate. When you are tired or not feeling well, that is one long haul!

    We use them, especially on hot days when I'm tired.

    It's not a quick choice and that is why we did it for the first time in December. It's a nice little ride if you have the time.

    I agree 100% with everything my DW said.

    It's something we have never done, I think we might give it a go this year. There have been times when I'm over the UK side of World Showcase and just haven't been able to walk any further, so we've just had to stop and sit for a while until I can carry on.

    I don't care if it takes longer, it will give me time to rest ready for the walk to the exit.

    I've only been on one once and that was because I had never been on them and went for the ride rather than to get anywhere.

    We've used them, but so long ago I don't truly remember when! :lol: They are slow and we never seem to time it right. We like to walk though, so that's part of the reason we don't much notice them.

    I believe the world showcase is one mile around? :unsure: I thought I'd read that somewhere forever ago...
