Description And Comments

Large-capacity paddle-wheel riverboat that navigates the waters around Tom Sawyer Island. A beautiful craft, the riverboat provides a lofty perch from which to see Frontierland and New Orleans Square.

The Mark Twain, Sailing Ship Columbia, and Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes travel through the Rivers of America, which was refurbished in 2010.

During the 2010 refurb, the show scenes and audio spiel were updated to include a home for Mike Fink (and one of his keelboats, a former Disneyland attraction) and 26 new audio-animatronic animals, and the audio spiel now includes a musical nod to the New Orleans-set The Princess and the Frog. Make sure to spot the real horse in the Indian Village stable.

Touring Tips

One of three boat rides that survey the same real estate. Because Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes are slower in loading and the Sailing Ship Columbia operates seasonally, we think the riverboat makes more efficient use of touring time. If you are not in the mood for a boat ride, many of the same sights can be seen by hiking around Tom Sawyer Island.

The Riverboat typically operates until an hour and fifteen minutes before the park closes, except on Fantasmic! nights when the operation ends at 5:45 p.m.

If you're looking for a new experience aboard the Mark Twain, try asking a cast member if you can enjoy the trip from the Pilothouse.

Special Comments

Provides an excellent vantage point; suspends operation at dusk.
