    Are handicap scooters allowed on the boats between Yacht Club and Hollywood Studios?

    Hello Dorothy! Welcome back to planDisney!

    The EPCOT Resort area around Crescent Lake is my absolute favorite place in the entire world. This area holds so many beautiful memories for me and I just feel at peace when I'm wandering Disney's BoardWalk or listening to the children play as they fly down the waterslide in Stormalong Bay. As a child, my family often stayed at Disney's Beach Club Resort or the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, and my husband and I actually got married at Sea Breeze Point, the large gazebo structure on the shores of Crescent Lake.  I finally feel like I'm on vacation when I hop on to the Friendship Boats that take our family to and from EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Dorothy, you'll be happy to know that scooters, also known as Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs), are welcome on the Friendship Boats that sail between the EPCOT Resort area hotels and the two Theme Parks close by.  When the boat is docked the Cast Members in charge will add a small ramp to allow you to drive right onto the boat.  

    Walt Disney World Resort does its best to make sure every Guest that visits the Resort is happy, comfortable and accommodated.  You can find more information for Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities within this link, including locations in which Guests are able to remain in their wheelchair/ECV or those where they will need to transfer out.  

    Since you'll be staying so close to the Disney Skyliner make sure you also seek out a ride for a bird's eye view of the Resort!  This is a quick, easy, and scooter-friendly way to hop from EPCOT to Disney's Hollywood Studios in no time! It might just be my new favorite way to travel around the Resort!

    Please come back and see us again if you have any other planning questions, Dorothy!
