    Are lap riders allowed in the amphicar rides? How many people can ride at once?

    Welcome Back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jessica ~

    Taking a cruise in one of the Vintage Amphicars is a great way to see Disney Springs from the water! These cars remind me of something out of a spy movie.

    That is a great question. My boys are bigger now so I called The BOATHOUSE to confirm for you. If you have a small child or toddler, you are welcome to hold them on your lap. They will provide life vests for them as well. Typically, you can get two adults in the back seat and one adult in the front seat (the driver of course is in the other front seat). Depending on the size of the children, you may be able to get one adult and two small children in the backseat.

    Reservations can only be made in person inside The BOATHOUSE BOATIQUE. They do not book advanced reservations because they will not run the Amphicars if there is any inclement weather in the area.

    Be sure to have a crew member take pictures of your party in the Amphicar before you launch on your cruise. You are also more than welcome to take pictures during your cruise.

    I also highly recommend eating at The BOATHOUSE. This is one of my favorite places to eat at Disney Springs. They have excellent food and a great atmosphere.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
