    Hi, We are traveling down for WDW Marathon weekend and considering the Vintage Amphicars. The Disney Springs website notes 4 passengers can be accommodated. Does this include in-lap toddlers? We have 3 adults, a 5-year old, & a two-year old (5 total)


    Thanks for asking me your question at planDisney!

    I am embarrassed to admit that I have never ridden the Vintage Amphicars. They are such a neat addition to the waterways around Disney Springs, but I seemingly have never found the time in my plans to enjoy a trip. I guess the shopping and dining got in the way!

    Years ago I loved sporting around in the mini Sea Raycers on those waterways with friends, so I am sure they offer a neat view of the larger space, and can just be a fun escapade during your stay!

    Rather than guess, I decided to call The BOATHOUSE directly (407-939-2628). I told them that you would have 4 standard guests, with an additional lap child. They said that it has been allowed in the past, but the host on the phone stated that in all cases it was at the discretion of the captain. While I would guess that a 2-year-old on a lap will be allowed, I cannot guarantee anything. 

    If I had to guess, I would expect that you will get approval. If not, I would still recommend going ahead and having one adult opt-out with the lap child and instead go and enjoy one of the myriad of other activities in the area. Plus, what great pictures they could capture from the shore as you sailed by! 

    I confirmed with them on the phone that you cannot make reservations. The Amphicars are on a first-come-first-served basis. 

    Please feel free to write us back if you have any follow-up questions. 

    Have a Magical Vacation!
