Has anyone done just the Dig at the Atlantis recently? I am wondering if it is wheelchair friendly. Carnival's shore excursions to Atlantis don't include one for just the Dig, but I saw where you can just get a ticket from the front desk at the resort for $29 pp and visit the Dig.

Here is an excerpt from the Disney Cruise Line website regarding their Dig tour...

"Wheelchairs need to be standard size and collapsible; no electric wheelchairs permitted. Guests must be able to board and debark the bus or mini-van on their own."

Also this, which implies you might have to collapse the wheelchair in a few places and walk through some narrow spaces:

"This excursion is stroller accessible. However, some portions of the tour may require Guests to fold accompanying strollers."

Thanks, Dave! I have been to Nassau so many times and never visited the resort except for the casino a couple of times. Figured it was time to do something else while there.

I'll write a review when I return.

Thanks again for your info.

Mary

The "Dig" is a lower level viewing area of the marine habitat. It is truly amazing. HERE is a link.
