WDW boat rentals

My previous trips to Disney I heard about various boat rentals including watermice. Can someone tell me more about this and where I can do it?

This time I'll be staying at two hotels - the Hilton at WDW and Pop Century. I don't believe either has boat rentals on property. So where can I go to this?

Any links to info on places, types of boats, rates, etc would be greatly appreciated.

There are several Disney Resorts that rent out the Boats as well at Downtown Disney.

Here's a helpful site

Hmm a boat rental might be something I would be interested in as well hadn't really thought about it on this trip but have done it on other vacations at other destinations. Anyone have any more info about it. So Captain Jack's Marina is at Downtown Disney?

My biggest question would be how much of an area are you allowed to boat in. I have been dissapointed during past boat rentals, for example rent a nice power boat only to find that you are restricted to a very small area so you basically just go around in circles. If I were to rent a boat I would like to be able to cover a larger area and site see, like the boat rental last year in San Diego Bay, awesome.

Didn't mean to highjack your post Dragon but figured it would answer your questions too.

That's OK - I'm interested in this too.

I would probably rent from Downtown Disney. What kind of area could I boat in?

I believe you can also rent boats at Ft. Wilderness to use on Bay Lake.
