    how many ecv's can be on a bus? also how many ecvs fit on boats at one time.

    Hi Linda ~

    Your trip is just around the corner! Are you too excited to sleep yet?

    Most buses can accommodate 2 Electric Conveyance Vehicles (EVCs) or wheelchairs at once. If you will have more than one person in your party that uses an ECV and a bus arrives with a Guest in an ECV or wheelchair that isn't getting off, you may want to consider splitting your group up for the trip to your destination. That way you won't risk waiting on several buses and not be able to get both of your Guests on.

    It depends on the boat as to whether or not they can accommodate ECVs and how many. The ferry boats that run to and from the Magic Kingdom and the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), can accommodate several ECVs each trip so you should not have any issues there.

    The smaller launches that run between the Magic Kingdom and the Grand Floridian Resort and the Polynesian Village Resort cannot accommodate ECVs. Guests in wheelchairs can board if they fold their wheelchairs and can transfer to board. The larger motor cruisers that run from the Magic Kingdom to the Seven Seas Lagoon for Fort Wilderness and the Wilderness Lodge can accommodate 2 EVCs unless the water level is too low.

    The Friendship Boats on Crescent Lake in the Epcot Resort area can accommodate 2 EVCs unless the water level is too low. Make sure you check for the current conditions before waiting in line for boats. There is usually a Cast Member on the docks that can assist you but keep in mind that the Captain always has the final word.

    The monorails can accommodate ECVs. Look for the areas marked for Handicapped Guests in the boarding area and the Monorail Pilots can assist you with a ramp to board. Just tell them where you are getting off so that they can be ready when you reach your destination.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
