    nope.com ... The canoes have no motors either. Try the search feature. This has been discussed numerous times at length.

    I believe you're responding seriously to what we Earth humans refer to as a "joke."

    I thought it was obvious what I did there.

    Sediment knows what's at the bottom of Rivers of America. Listen to him. Except about duck motors on canoes. That stuff is just muck.

    The AA ducks in the ROA are on tracks. You'll see this when ROA is drained.

    Don't believe me? Look at old photos of a drained ROA.

    They are actually called Guide rails on the Jungle cruise and The Boats not tracks

    Re: Is Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes on a track?

    When I worked Canoes back in 89, we used to get guests who refused to row as they held fast to their belief that we were on a track. I'd then spin us around to prove them wrong.

    My lead didn't like that.

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    So what happens to the Columbia and the Mark Twain while the river is drained? Disney does not have have a true dry dock, do they?

    1. It's been drained before.
    2. I believe the dock used to hold one ship while the other sails alone can be used as a dry dock, as there has been extensive refurbs involving the parts below-water.
    3. Question really is whether there are two dry docks. Or is there a place at the bottom of the ROA, in the backwater, where a ship can be safely tied down or put on blocks or whatever.
