There are many things to do outside the Disney parks, but we often don’t take the time to seek them out or enjoy them. From renting a boat to shooting some arrows, you might be surprised at everything that you can do. And renting a bike is one of those often overlooked, but still fun, activities you can do at Disney World.
Most of the bike paths around Disney World are flat and not especially difficult. They are made for a pleasant trip, not an endurance training event.
Most bike rentals are relatively inexpensive – coming in at about $10 per hour or $20 per day for a typical two-wheel bike, or a bit more than that for a four-wheel surrey bike.
Florida law requires that all riders under 16 years of age wear a helmet, and Disney includes them free of charge. And for the little riders, Disney offers smaller sized bikes and even training wheels.

Disney offers many different options at selected Disney resort hotels:
