Did you know that Walt Disney envisioned a Mississippi-style riverboat in the first plans for his “Mickey Mouse” amusement park back in the early 1950’s? Yes, Walt always wanted a working riverboat in his park, no matter where it was going to be located. This week, we take a look at the unique riverboats in the North American Disney Parks, with this week’s Word of the Week – Riverboat.
The Liberty Square Riverboat is a classic Walt Disney World attraction that has been in operation (almost) since the Magic Kingdom’s Opening Day. The ride along the iconic Rivers of America around Tom Sawyer Island has changed over the years, but it’s still a familiar, pleasant, and fun experience that every Magic Kingdom guest should have!
This week, I’ll give you some history on the riverboats, a little trivia, and tell you what will be happening next along the Rivers of America!
