Riding the Calm Seas - Walt Disney World - March 2022
This recent boat ride - from the Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian - was on aboard a new-to-us vessel: the Calm Seas. We love a good Disney boat ride and have done a bunch of them: from resort to parks. From resort to Disney Springs. From Resort to Resort. Friendship boats. Motor Launch boats. Ferries. Pontoon boats. But, the boat you see below in photos, was new-to-us: Calm Seas.
Two of the boats were later moved to the Magic Kingdom resort area on Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon, where they were repurposed for a pirate-themed fireworks cruise. The names of these two boats have been changed to “Calm Seas” and “Fair Winds.” They were also repainted to better suit their new role.Love a 'new to us' Disney World experience like this. Pretty sure it was due to a maintenance issue and the Calm Seas was likely pressed into service as a replacement boat for the Magic Kingdom - Grand Floridian - Polynesian Village boat route run.
