Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes
Everyone paddles the free-floating fiberglass canoes, which can be fun for some but tiring for others. The near 1/2-mile route around Tom Sawyer Island is long, but the sights are interesting. Must transfer from wheelchair and climb steps. This ride closed for refurbishment in January 2016, as part of the expansion to add a Star Wars Land, and is scheduled to re-open July 29, 2017.
Ages: All ages
Thrill Factor: Paddling; you may get a bit damp.
Boat Ride Duration: 10 min.
- Must transfer from wheelchair

I used to love going on this ride and "accidently" splashing my brother and friends while rowing.

As if walking isn't enough cardio, this gives you an upper body workout and more cardio. Sure is fun.

Have only done this a couple of times. It was fun. Nice to get away from the crowds for a little bit. Wish everyone could paddle in sync though.

Yes, there is some work involved. I didn't expect to like this attraction very much, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is a bit like the Jungle Cruise on a canoe.
