    Hi, I am planning on surprising my boyfriend with a sunset ride in the amphicars on our next trip. Would I be able to go in the morning and reserve a time slot for later in the evening? Also, is it customary to tip the captain of the amphicar? Thanks!

    Hey, Kathy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Y'all will have a blast sailing around the lagoon in a classic water car cruiser. Walt Disney World Resort has unique fun for kids of every age.

    Yes, you may sign up for Amphicar Tours from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (weather permitting). Walk-up reservations can be made at the Ship’s Store, adjacent to The BOATHOUSE®: Great Food, Waterfront Dining, Dream Boats™; Phone or online reservations are unavailable. Just let the Crew Member at the Ship's Store know you want a sunset tour but try and have a specific time in mind. Tours are about 20 minutes long on the water.

    Currently, if you enjoy lunch between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., you may receive $25.00 off your Amphicar Tour booking. Bring your receipt into the Ship's Store by 3:00 p.m. to take advantage of this special offer. (Hours and prices are subject to change without notice. Call 407-939-2628 for details.)

    Disney Dad Tip:If you are dining at The BOATHOUSE®: Great Food, Waterfront Dining, Dream Boats™ at Disney Springs ask for a table on the pier near the antique boats. You will have a lovely view of the lake during your meal.

    Kathy, enjoy making many unforgettable Magical Memories.
