Whose Canoes Are They Anyway?

Written by: Jim Smith

Believe it or not, guests at Disneyland have been able to paddle a canoe in the Rivers of America since 1956. Disneyland’s Frontierland was inspired by Walt Disney’s love of American folk icons, including the legendary Davy Crockett and the fictional Tom Sawyer. Most fans of the Disney parks know Disneyland’s canoes as Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes. But did you know the attraction wasn’t always named after Davy Crockett?

This trivia question will reward those who are fluent in Disneyland history. By what name was the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes attraction originally known?

Take your best guess, then click on Mickey to see the answer (it’s part of a trans-continental history on the Rivers of America in the Disney parks)!
