Formerly the Richard F. Irvine Riverboat (named for one of the builders of the Magic Kingdom), this paddle-wheel steamship navigates the Rivers of America, steaming around Tom Sawyer Island while passing cabins, an Indian village, and some animatronic wildlife. It's a relaxing way to take a scenic tour of Frontierland and Liberty Square.


Not a fun experience. There is a million other things you could be doing, and you're spending your time riding in a slow moving paddleboat to look at museum dioramas. What is your life?

Please remove this lame excuse for a "tour." If you want a scenic ride, try the Tomorrowland Transit or the railroad.

We loved taking a ride on the boat. It became a memory for us all because it was the first time my son got on a boat. We enjoyed the scenery and a slow pace ride.
There's not much to say about this ride. The boat is awesomely detailed, the ride itself offers nothing you cannot explore by foot. As a scenic tour, I recommend the WDW Railroad instead.
A nice, relaxing diversion.
Nice way to escape the crowds. 6/10
Long and Boring
A fabulous and overlooked part of the Magic Kingdom experience.
