Walt Disney World Finally Re-Opens the Liberty Square Riverboat to Guests


We are so excited to announced that the Liberty Square Riverboat within the Liberty Square area of Magic Kingdom Park has finally re-opened to guests!  We previously announced that the attraction would be closing from January 8th, 2018 through July 19th, 2018 for a lengthy refurbishment.  The refurbishment was extended, but at least the iconic riverboat was able to receive guests again just in time for Christmas, first carrying guests again on December 22nd, 2018.


Walt Disney World frequently closes various attractions in order to complete refurbishments, upgrades and changes to different aspects of the attractions. Disney is usually pretty good about giving notice when attractions are expected to close so that guests can prepare their trips around must-do attractions.

We are so excited to see the Liberty Belle back up and running again!  Who else out there always takes a ride on the Liberty Belle during their Walt Disney World vacation?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
