We "loved" the Boggy Creek Airboat Rides experience. Dispelling all the misconceptions, the Florida Everglades headwaters begin just 30-40 mins south from the Disney area, which is where Boggy Creek Airboats are located, possibly the nearest air boat company to Orlando. We showed up early one morning (when unbeknown to us in advance the wildlife is at its most active), and literally walked straight on - no queueing. 30-40 min ride across the swamp and lakes, we saw alligators, all kinds of birdlife including bald eagles, and most of all, it was a relaxed morning out away from the hussle and bustle of the major theme parks. We'd recommend it to everyone.
