    Davy Crockket Canoes.

    The canoes closed in 1999 right? I was there for the 50 year celebration and the canoes were open. Next time i go, will they be open again, or was it just for the golden year?

    The Davy Crockett canoes are still operational at Disneyland... We last rode them at the end of this past summer. They are seasonal though, and have limited operational hours...

    Re: Davy Crockket Canoes.

    We rode them 2 summers back...but Ive seen them open in the spring summer and into the fall.

    I just always question if there is some sort of motor? I mean Ive watched groups on this boat barely paddling, you would think at some point, they would have a group that just cant get around or is so unequal they go way off track, but nope...always pretty much on the same line, and around the rivers in approximately the same time...hmmm

    Re: Davy Crockket Canoes.

    The canoes are very much operational...just ask the CM's who continue the grand DL tradition with the early morning race tournament they have in the summer months, conducted in the very early AM before the park opens.

    Perhaps the OP is thinking of the Mike Fink Keel boats, which closed after a boat capsized in 1997 tossing a load of guests into the drink.

    Not the park's best era. It was right around then that you had the death from the poorly secured rope hook on the Columbia, and the BTMRR disaster...
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Of course there's a motor. It sounds like quacking ducks so you can't hear it.

    I like the canoes better than the rafts.
    When I was there last year, they were still in operation.
