Take a Magical Ride with Me at Disney Springs

Disney’s done it again…they’ve added a little more magic to my life.

It all began on a beautiful morning, beneath the warm Florida sun.  I climbed into the backseat of a car, but not just any car, an Amphicar.  You may be wondering, what’s an Amphicar.  Well, a car-boat would probably be the best way to describe it.

Amphicars are able to drive on land and float in water.  About 4,000 of these vehicles were manufactured back in the 1960’s but today only few remain and The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs is home to 8 of them.  In fact, this is the only place in the world you can take a ride in one of these vintage vehicles.  How cool is that?

The Amphicar holds 3 passengers and cost $125 per car.  Tours are available daily and last about 20 minutes.  It’s a great way to see the new waterfront properties at Disney Springs, plus take in a little sunshine.   For more information, visit http://www.theboathouseorlando.com/amphicars/
