VIDEO: Liberty Belle Sets Sail Across Bay Lake to Return to Magic Kingdom Park
Since October the Rivers of America has been drained and the Liberty Belle was sent to dry dock behind Magic Kingdom Park to replace her underwater track. Now the Liberty Belle is back home again in Magic Kingdom Park.
To return her to the track, Disney teams worked together overnight to sail her through Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon, around Disney’s Contemporary Resort and crossing in front of Magic Kingdom Park. She was then towed by hand through a narrow water channel before underwater divers reconnected her to the newly refurbished track!
You can watch the historic 47-foot authentic steam-powered paddle wheeler's venture across Bay Lake in the video below.
Guests visiting Magic Kingdom Park can once again take a relaxing half-mile journey on a riverboat with views of both Frontierland and Liberty Square.
