  • Amphicars: Splash into the lake in style as you float in an actual car! These rare cars were purchased from collections from around the world. Only 3,878 of these vehicles were made in the 1960’s. This is an extremely rare opportunity as The BOATHOUSE is the only place in the world where you can ride on the water in style.

    Reservations are available hourly from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., weather permitting. Each Amphicar can accommodate up to three guests (which can be classified as three adults or two adults and two small children). The cost as of June 2015 is $125 per car.

Reservations are suggested and can be made at The Ship’s Store (next to The BOATHOUSE), by calling 407-WDW-BOAT, or through Destinations to Travel.
