    What is the best way to get from the MK to the Grand Floidian when you are using an ECV.

    Hi John,

    You actually have a couple of options.  The Gold Launch boats will take you from the Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian. I spoke with Disney Transportation who told me these boats can accommodate ECVs depending on the water level - it is the Captain's discretion.  If its too low, you'll need to travel by monorail (fortunately the Resort Monorail Line is very near the dock at the Magic Kingdom so you don't have to run all over the place). The sail time (once everyone is on board) is pretty quick - ~ 10 minutes.

    The Monorail may be a little easier to maneuver the ECV to board and there are no water levels to question.  They have a little ramp that they can pull out for Guests traveling in ECVs so that you can drive on. You will have to back off so for Guests who don't always use an ECV in the normal course of every day life, I suggest practicing prior to your trip at a local store (i.e., Target). The trip by monorail is ~ 15 minutes.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
