    Can the Friendship Boats from World Showcase to Hollywood Studios accommodate an ECV? I understand strollers do not to be folded but I have not found any information about ECV's on these boats or on the boats crossing the lake in World Showcase.

    Hey Olivia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your great question about accessibility at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Watercraft ECV access varies depending on the type of watercraft and the existing water levels and conditions.

    Olivia, under normal conditions, Friendship Boats departing from the Friendship Launches and traveling across World Showcase are ECV accessible. A maximum of two ECVs can travel on the Friendship Boats at any given time. In conditions of very low water levels, you may be asked to take alternate transportation. Another scenario in which you may be asked to take alternate transportation is if your ECV has a very large bumper. However, this is very unlikely!

    Friendship Boats also run between Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney’s BoardWalk, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, and the Walt Disney World Dolphin and Swan Resorts. Barring any abnormal conditions, these Friendship Boats are also wheelchair and ECV accessible! Woo-hoo, Olivia!

    Walt Disney World Resort prides itself on providing helpful services and access options for Guests with mobility disabilities. I encourage you to contact Disability Services at (407) 560-2547 or by email at disability.services@disneyparks.com if you need any help.

    If you have additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are all EARS!
