Liberty Square Riverboat Closing for Brief Refurbishment at Magic Kingdom Beginning Aug. 22

Beginning August 22, the Liberty Square Riverboat will be temporarily unavailable due to regularly scheduled maintenance. The attraction is currently scheduled to reopen Magic Kingdom Park Guests on September 2. Given the short duration of this refurbishment, no major changes or updates are expected this time.

Here's the official description of the attraction, as seen on Walt Disney World's official website:

See the Wild Frontier
Steam into American history aboard the majestic, Colonial-era Liberty Belle riverboat and enjoy a relaxing half-mile tour around Tom Sawyer Island.

Along the way, listen to a recorded narrator—in the voice of iconic American author and humorist Mark Twain—sharing memories of Twain’s time on the Mississippi. It’s full steam ahead on this historic, nostalgic trip back to the past!

Along the River’s Edge
During this charming, 17-minute trip, you’ll encounter a rarely seen side of Magic Kingdom park. Behold a bevy of sights from the early days of the American frontier, including:
  • An early American settlement
  • An idyllic Native American village
  • Harper’s Mill
  • Fort Langhorn
  • Wilson’s Cave Inn
  • Woodland animals
You’ll also be treated to unique views of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain and Haunted Mansion.

Aboard the Liberty Belle
Featuring meticulously detailed wood craftsmanship, the 47-foot tall Liberty Belle is a working reproduction of the historic vessels that ferried people up and down the mighty Mississippi.

An actual steam engine converts water from the river into steam that powers the large paddle that in turn propels the boat. There are 4 decks with limited seating available on each.
