Liberty Square Riverboat
Take a cruise on a steam-driven sternwheeler. Mark Twain narrates your spin around Tom Sawyer Island, but the real joy is the attention to detail. The boat and its steam power plant are more interesting than the scenery—be sure to tour the decks. Dodge the sun in the middle deck salon. The “Liberty Belle” replaced the “Richard F. Irvine” in 1996. Wheelchair accessible. Adult supervision. Departs on the hour and half-hour.

This is a great ride to slow down and catch your breath on. Ask one of the crew members if you could visit the wheel house!

Nice on a cool day and can sit and enjoy a rest. Not a must-ride, but we enjoy it.

Great ride to take a break on when the park is busy.

Another way to take a break from walking and it's a lovely short boat ride.

We catch a ride on this when we need a break from the crowds, and enjoy the scenery. We like to see where the crowd goes once the gate opens, and we break to the opposite! We always take family photos on the deck with the Beautiful scenery in the back. We never miss this relaxing ride. I recommend this for a quick refresher on a warm day.

Another classic experience, but I only go on it about every third trip.

A fun ride through Frontierland. Keep in mind, however, there are no seats so if you're looking for an out-of-the way place for a rest, this isn't it!

A lovely time out in the middle of a busy park day.

Not super thrilling, but a nice place to rest and get away from the hustle-bustle of the MK. We don't ride this every trip, but it does provide interesting views of the Haunted Mansion and other attractions that make it a fun diversion.

Relaxing ride for an afternoon break

Can get very hot ! Try to avoid it during the hottest part of the day.

It's a little on the boring side.

Nice place to take a break from the day. My daughter likes to find a place on the side facing Tom Sawyer's and just sit and relax.

I could see me being a riverboat gambler in a previous life...

Relaxing but takes time

Not super thrilling, but a nice little ride-maybe a nice afternoon break. Not always operating during my September visits

Relaxing trip, try it at night,

Although this attraction is nothing too special, it is a great way to relax away from the crowds & usually doesn't have a long wait time.

it was a nice bit of relaxation in the midst of Magic Kingdom. The only negative was the lack of seating.

Lovely and relaxing.

A nice way to spend some time when you need a break from running around the park.

Old Disney and so incredibly lovely. This is what you do when you need a break from touring. Simply watching the world go by as you sail along the "river"... the thought makes me homesick for Disney.

Relaxing ride. Nothing spectacular.

Really like this attraction for the views but hate to stand up the whole time
mbbowen gave this a rating of 6 on 05/30/2016 at 9:41:24 am EDT
Recommended on a crowded day. Nice and leisurely, and you get some views (like of Haunted Mansion) you can't see elsewhere.

Relaxing boot trip. Check out all the decks and the "scenery!"

Relaxing ride and great for photo ops. Get a spot in the shade though - the sun was brutal when we sat in the "stern".
