Ride Guide: Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom Riverboat LIberty Belle rivers of America

Disney's Magic Kingdom riverboat is a ride that also adds atmosphere to Frontierland

October 2011: Once inside the Magic Kingdom gates, all guests walk down Main Street USA. Once in front of the castle, turn a hard left into Adventureland to follow rides in order, though they’re also subdivided by themed area. If turning right into Tomorrowland, follow the Ride Guide in reverse. To reach Liberty Square first, take a gentle left. To visit Fantasyland, go through the castle or take one of the walkways on the left or right.

For a complete description of rides, go to the Ride Describe: Magic Kingdom, but note that surprises along the way will be revealed ahead of time in a Ride Describe.  If you like surprises, use only this Ride Guide.
