PI Update: Amphicars Have Arrived

One of the most highly anticipated features of the upcoming opening of The Boathouse restaurant on Pleasure Island are the advertised amphicars.
The Boathouse is nearly completed and ready to open....and take a look at what is parked at the restaurant's landing!
The first two of six amphicars!
They've been restored beautifully and will be available for rental!
With tickets for sale in the restaurant's gift shop.  Blog read DJMadmanRay shares this article with us from the website MouseSteps.
The bar out on Village Lake.
According to the article, they're opening in April.  Dozens of new employees were reporting for duty yesterday afternoon to practice their roles. No one I spoke to would confirm an exact date but keep in mind that April is next week!

If you zoom in on the second picture, looks like a 3rd amphicar might be parked behind the wall.
