Attractions

The Hall of Presidents is obviously found here in Liberty Square. It is a stage show featuring audio-animatronics of all the U.S. presidents. It is 22 minutes long, a nice respite from the heat. There is a short film before the stage show that shows historical accounts of several notable presidents.

Liberty Square Riverboat is a cruise on the Rivers of America, the waterway around Tom Sawyer Island. The name of the boat is the Liberty Belle. It is an authentic replica of an old paddle wheel riverboat. There are props along the riverbank that simulate the old west. Fun Fact: The boat is guided through the river on a track which is hidden under the murky water. *The attraction is closed for refurbishment at the time of this blog.

The Haunted Mansion is one of the iconic rides at the Magic Kingdom. It is a dark ride that tours this haunted estate. The cue is interactive as you wind your way around the graveyard and read the “punny” tombstones and push and press buttons on musical crypts. The mansion is home to 999 happy haunts including ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises. You ride in a black Doom Buggy through more than 15 rooms of haunted mayhem and as the saying goes “Watch out for Hitch-hiking Ghosts”
