Rent a Surrey Bike at Disney's Boardwalk Resort

Though we all love touring the Parks, many people schedule "days off" into their Walt Disney World vacations, especially when they'll be traveling for an extended period of time. If you're looking for something to do on your non-park day, why not head over to the Epcot Resort Area? Aside from strolling, shopping and snacking your way down the wooden planks, at Disney's Boardwalk Inn and Villas you can rent a Surrey Bike and go for a ride!

Surrey Bikes: Fun For The Whole FamilySurrey Bikes: Fun For The Whole Family


The Boardwalk is a fun place to spend some down time along the shores of Crescent Lake, and one of the signature activities is renting a surrey bike for the whole family. Surrey Bikes are available in either one bench or two bench models and can accommodate 2, 4, or 6 guests. Disney says that each bench can fit three average sized passengers, but don't forget, the more folks you pile in the harder it is to pedal! Teamwork is a must with this activity and there are two pedaling spots on each bench.

  • $20 per half hour for a Single Bench Bike
  • $22 per half hour for a Double Bench Bike

The Surrey rental booth is open from 10am - 10pm daily, weather permitting. A basic rentals last for 30 minutes and bikes are welcome to go up and down the Boardwalk, as well as around Crescent Lake. However bikes are not allowed on the walkway to Epcot's International Gateway.

The Surrey Booth is right on the Boardwalk across from the entrance to the boat dock. They accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, Cash and a Disney resort Room charge as forms of payment. Children must meet a height requirement to Pedal the Surrey Bike. The rental counter can also arrange for wheelchair and electric scooter rental for guests that need some assistance in exploring the Boardwalk.

Surrey Bike rentals can also be found at several other Walt Disney World Resorts such as Port Orleans, Ft. Wilderness, and Wilderness Lodge. So if you don't want to hoof it over to the Boardwalk on your "rest" day, check with the rental counter at your resort's marina. It's a great way to spend some time outside the parks.

We wented the Surrey Bikes last October with our children one morning after breakfast at Cape May. We rode around the lake about 3 times in the 1/2 hr rental time. It was such a relaxing ride (except for that big hill!!) and the kids had a great time....it is one of my best family memories from that trip! My husband and I are going back this October for Food & Wine, without the kids, and I am sure we will be renting bikes again!

I think it sounds like so much fun! It's good to hear that you can make it around the lake a couple of times in that time frame.

My family loves the Surrey bikes too! On our last trip we decided to rent them at Wilderness Lodge and Riverside Port Orleans Resort instead of our usual Boardwalk. It was the best decision ever...the path at Wilderness Lodge was shady, flat and quiet. We even saw a family of deer with two fawns! The Riverside surrey bike ride was shady too with a couple little hills (easier than the two at the Boardwalk), snaking along the Sassagoula River with gorgeous views of the grounds and buildings. Thanks for the post!

We've rented the surrey bikes several times. I would caution everyone, that it is a bit strenuous in the heat. Summer isn't our favorite time to ride, but October through March is AWESOME!!

We tried to rent a 2 seater surrey bike at Boardwalk. We are a family of two adults and an 11 year old and a 9 year old. There are height restrictions for who is allowed to pedal and we were fine knowing that our children could not pedal the bikes. They refused to rent us the 2 seater bike. They told us we could only get the one-seater, put our 11 year old in the middle and our NINE YEAR OLD in the basket on front. That was ridiculous. To me, the logical move would be the 2 bench bike, one adult in front pedaling with a child in the middle (non-pedaling) seat and one adult in the back with the other child in the middle (non-pedaling seat). We were very disappointed, especially as the surrey bike staff laughed as we walked away, with our children on the verge of tears.

Oh my gosh, that's awful! I hope that you went to guest services and complained because that's just not right. I'm not sure about Boardwalk, but I know that just last week at Wilderness Lodge I saw a family with the configuration you wanted riding along the path. If you haven't talked to guest services yet, you should really think about sending them a note!

We'll probably check out what they'll let us ride in November. I am guessing it will be the one bench bike, we'll have to put the 2 smaller children (2yrs+4yrs) in the basket at the front and our eldest (9yrs) in between us. We have rented one at DLP once, it was flipping hard work and DH got it going a bit fast on the downhill so I was clinging on for dear life (with a 5wk old baby in my arms) on the bend at the bottom of the hill! But it was fun and DD loved it.

Awwww....... i love these..!! managed to finally get round to hiring one in Oct 2014 after years of never being able to fit them into our plans. So glad we did.... so much fun & another 'must-do' ticked off the list :D

My Daughter, 3 at the time, got a real thrill out of perching up front & dinging the bell to alert people we were coming, we also practised her right from left as she gave us directions..... theyre hard work when you get to Swan/Dolphin are as its all up hill & be careful just after there when it slopes back down again & you whizz off, try to stay in control....!!! We also managed 3 laps but officially she told us 2...... we kind of sneaked past for a 3rd go lol

We had a 'race' with some cast members in their electric cart, that was cool...... My daughter loved that :D

Definitely recommend it...!! Going again November this year & will definitely be checking these out again, maybe at Fort Wilderness this time for a change of scenery & hopefully a lesser crowd as the Boardwalk area had a lot of folks milling about so you had to concentrate a bit too hard to properly relax.

What about Disney Gift Cards? Are they an acceptable form of payment for surrey rentals?

Hi Keli! I don't know for sure, but they should.
