ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In today's age where
getting kids outside to exercise and enjoy nature can be more challenging than
ever, Take Me Fishing™ and Walt Disney World Resort are making it easier for
families to connect with the outdoors through fishing and boating. Beginning
this month, The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) and its Take
Me Fishing™ campaign are sponsoring the fun and educational family
catch-and-release fishing and boating experiences offered to guests at the
Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

Take Me Fishing™ and Walt Disney World Resort offer fun and educational
fishing and boating excursions.

Three locations at the resort offer Take Me Fishing™ branded guided fishing
and boating experiences. In addition, visitors to Disney's Fort Wilderness
Resort & Campground have the opportunity to participate in dockside fishing,
while visitors at Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside can try their hand at
cane pole fishing. Guests can also enjoy the "Take Me Fishing Challenge"
recently introduced at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

"With the popularity of fishing and boating on the rise with women and
children in the U.S., collaborating with the Walt Disney World Resort is
helping us get even more families engaged in these sports," said Frank
Peterson, president and CEO of RBFF. "Our collective dedication to
conservation and family activity make this relationship ideal to showcasing
the magic of fishing and boating."

Guests who boat and fish at the Walt Disney World Resort will be encouraged to
continue these memorable experiences at home by connecting with
TakeMeFishing.org, which provides more information about where to boat and
fish in their local communities. Parents can also find how-to videos to learn
fishing basics as well as additional safety tips and advice.

In addition to Take Me Fishing's presence at the Walt Disney World  Resort,
they have a relationship with Disney Media Networks to spread the word about
the benefits of fishing and boating. This relationship includes sponsorships
on Disney Channel and Disney XD, activating through Radio Disney at popular
events around the country, as well as integration of the Take Me Fishing
messaging in online content and mobile apps.
