The Liberty Belle Sets Sail as the Rivers of America Prepares a Return to Magic Kingdom Disney World 

Last October, Cast Members drained the waters of the Rivers of America in Fronteirland, sending the Liberty Belle to dry dock behind Magic Kingdom Disney World in order to replace her underwater track. She is now returning in all of her glory. She has been greatly missed and we are so excited about her return to one of our favorite Disney parks. 

We visited while the Rivers of America was drained. Looks so strange doesn’t it? But, cool in the same sense. It is always so amazing to see how they upkeep all of the attractions in Disney Parks.
