Ferry Boats Refurbishment Underway in the Magic Kingdom

The ferry boats that take guests between the Ticket & Transportation Center and Magic Kingdom are currently being refurbished. Sometime soon, guests will be able to embark and disembark directly onto the second level of the boat.

The Richard F. Irvine ferry has been refurbished so guests can exit the top floor directly onto the dock. Walls at the front and back of the boat have been replaced by gates. A staircase on the dock was also constructed for guest access.


This change will greatly help with the flow of guests both onto and off of the ferry. It should also help with safety while the boat is in motion. Guests are not supposed to sit on the stairs inside while the boat is moving, but that’s almost always an issue.

Whatever the reason for this change, it’s a welcome one! Guests will have more options for embarking and debarking the boats and crowding should be less of an issue.
