    Tours in Epcot

    I am very interested in taking the Dolphins in Depth tour at Epcot, would you know what the requirements are for those in wheelchairs. I swim all the time, so being in the water shouldn't be a problem.

    I will give them a call and see. It says in the literature that I have that you wade into the water, so I will ask if a wheelchair can be brought in. the tour is 3 hours long and you are in the water with the dolphins but don't swim with them (in contrast to Discovery Cove's Swim with Dolphins) I'll post the answer after I call.

    Ok, just got off the phone, It IS wheelchair accessible! YAY!!!! I am tickled to hear it too. They transfer you to a water chair to do the tour! Hope this helps, let me know if I can be of further assistance!

    PS If you go I want a full report! I want to do this tour so badly. I interacted with dolphins in HI it was great!

    I will definetly let you know, I will do this tour, it is 100.00 cheaper then Discovery Cove. I don't need to swim with the Dolphins, just being that close to them is good enough for me. And at Discovery Cove they have about 1000 people a day in there Disney has a whole lot less then that a day, which also works for me.

    I have done this tour it was really awesome. If you are an passholder you do get 15%more off the tour. I have a picture posted wth me and the dolphins in the members gallery if you would like to see it.




    YES I"M GOING BACK AGAIN FOR HALLOWEEN
