It's a car. It's a boat. It's an amphibious automobile.
They call it an Amphicar!
Ahoy there! Did you know there are currently nine of these part land, part sea beauties operating right outside The Boathouse in Walt Disney World Resort? They are all a part of the newly re-imagined Downtown Disney Area which is getting a magical makeover into what eventually will be called 'Disney Springs.' (To be complete in 2016.) Walt Disney World guests can now experience these Captain-guided Amphicar tours in vintage vehicles, which are open and ready for cruisers! You and 2 of your closest friends can hop aboard on the Amphicar launch, as your car drives right into the water. Make a splash in Orlando & embark on this 20-minute tour of the landmarks of Downtown Disney! Included in your journey is a little whimsical history lesson about the Amphicar from your Captain and how they came to be. (We hear they may have a joke or two up their sleeve.) It's the perfect thing to include in your #CoolestSummer Bucket List at Walt Disney World!

About the Amphicars:
Amphicars are rare vehicles that drive on land and float in the water!
There are currently nine of these restored Amphicars at Walt Disney World Resort.
These Amphicars were purchased from private collections worldwide.
Only 3,878 of these unique vehicles were produced during the 1960’s (1961 to 1968).
