Liberty Square Riverboat Is Temporarily Closing SOON in Disney World

From time to time, Disney closes rides for refurbishment (their word for updating and sprucing up attractions), which is typically scheduled ahead of time so you don’t get to the park and find out then. Sometimes rides are closed for a LONG time, and sometimes it’s only a few days.

One Disney World attraction is about to close for refurbishment — here’s what you need to know.

Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square Riverboat is a steam-powered paddle-wheeler boat that takes guests on a cruise along the Rivers of America. The tour takes about 17 minutes and it can be a great way to take a break during a busy park day.

Beginning on August 22nd, the Riverboat appears to be closing. It’s not yet on the official Disney World refurbishment calendar, but when you check available times on Disney World’s website, it’s currently showing no times as of August 22nd.


On September 2nd, it looks like the Riverboat will be open again. Of course, this is subject to change, so we’ll be watching closely for any updates.

  1. The Rivers of America were recently drained and stood idle, why, why, why, was the refurbishment done at that time? Disney needs some time management pointers
