Bob-A-Round Boats and Other Early Water Activities

Bob-A-Round Boats


 These bizarre-looking striped boats had what looked like a lightening rod on top of them.  They were only around a short time after Walt Disney World opened.  Apparently the boats were often the victim of dead batteries, which often caused the boats to have to be towed back to the dock.  The boats can be glimpsed in the "Walt Disney Story" film shown in the Magic Kingdom and in the 1975 TV special "Welcome to the World" starring Lucie Arnaz.  Bob-A-Round boats were later available to rent for $4.00 an hour from the marina at Walt Disney World Village and had blue and white striped canopies.

Other Early Water Activities

 The following are activities that were located on the water and elsewhere at Walt Disney World in 1972, the Resort's first full year of operation.  The Electrical Water Pageant premiered on October 26, 1971 and a version of it still runs to this day.
