Liberty Square Riverboat reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Liberty Square Riverboat, a boat ride in Liberty Square at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Written by Robert Niles
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. - Sarah Bebb
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. - Meg T.
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. - Chris W.
A nice, relaxing diversion. - Sean Huckel
Nice way to escape the crowds. 6/10 - Christopher Sturniolo
Long and Boring - Brendan Harrison
A fabulous and overlooked part of the Magic Kingdom experience. - Man-Eating Sharks
