Walt Disney World Extends Liberty Square Riverboat Refurbishment

We previously announced that the riverboat, the Liberty Belle, within Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom Park would undergo a lengthy refurbishment.  The refurbishment began on January 8th, 2018 and run through July 19th, 2018.  It was originally anticipated that the boat would re-open to guests starting on July 20th, 2018.  We have heard that the riverboat didn’t re-open as expected and Disney has extended the refurbishment time frame.  Now the riverboat is expected to remain closed until fall of 2018.  We don’t have an official date yet when we can expect it to re-open to guests at this time.

Walt Disney World frequently closes various attractions in order to complete refurbishments, upgrades and changes to different aspects of the attractions.  We haven’t heard many details as to what the refurbishments are expected to be for the riverboat, but most of the attractions around Walt Disney World require maintenance every so often.

Who else can’t wait to take a relaxing ride on the Liberty Belle within Liberty Square when it re-opens?
