Hello everyone, and welcome to #Day50 of our #DisneyWorldCountdown! Can you believe that we have already counted down halfway through our list of 100 things to do at Disney World? It’s crazy how fast time flies, and before I know it, we’ll be on the road to Florida!
Today we are taking a look at an attraction known as the Liberty Square Riverboat, which features the Liberty Belle, named after Walt Disney’s wife Lillian, as the vessel that will take you around the Rivers of America on your journey. This is a fun, relaxing, “take me back in time” type of attraction, one that you can get on, look around the ship, see some parts of Walt Disney World that you don’t normally see, and just relax for a while. After a long day of going all throughout the parks, there are certainly times when this attraction is the perfect respite to ease your tired feet!
In addition to the daytime operation of the Liberty Belle, you can also appreciate the Liberty Belle after dark when you are watching Wishes. As you probably know, the Liberty Belle stops running in the evening in order to prepare for the famous fireworks show. However, the string lights are still lit, and it can be fun to get a tranquil look at Liberty Square and the Liberty Square Riverboat after hours too! Just check out this photo I took some years back.
One night a couple of weeks ago I was thinking about the Liberty Belle and how cool it would be to be able to take a ride on it after dark. That got my imagination going, and I started thinking, wouldn’t it be neat if the Imagineers made some sort of special run of the Liberty Belle — perhaps during one of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party — and operate the Liberty Belle as a special “Ghost” ride? I think it would be quite the setting for an evening of fun — who knows, maybe they could even turn it into a special dinner show type event. I know I’m rambling a bit, but those sorts of ideas excite me. What do you think about them?
Do you and your family enjoy the Liberty Square Riverboat, or do you pass it on by? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!
