Closing: Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre has been providing visitors to Walt Disney World the thrill of water-skiing, parasailing, and other adventures for around 20 years out of the marina at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Giving customers just a few days notice, the company said it will be closing for good on Friday, August 31st.

In a post on their Instagram page, the company said, “To all our fans and families who have enjoyed a day on the water with us a great thank you for the support. It has been a joy to share the sport we love with everyone along the way”

If you have a pre-paid reservation, Sammy Duvall’s is offering refunds. “If you have a future prepaid reservation we are issuing a refund to the credit card used for your reservation,” the company said in a statement. “If you have a future non paid reservation you will be receiving a email cancellation notification today as well. If you have any questions regarding your refund you may contact 407-939-0754.”

At this point we haven’t heard if Disney will takeover the activities or bring in another vendor.

Is Walt Disney World resort a place you expect to find tubing, water skiing, or parasailing options? Did you ever enjoy any of the water-based adventure activities led by Sammy Duvall’s over in Bay Lake?
