Tom Sawyer Island and the Liberty Square Riverboat are closed for refurbishment through the end of February. In preparation for the refurbishment, the Rivers of America has slowly been drained, and is now almost completely empty.

There are some large puddles of water remaining, which ducks are happily still floating in.

50 years since Disney’s crown Jewel opened. Much has been done over the years but they seem more interested in other parks and DVC members. The Castle is a breathtaking shining beacon of the Anniversary. I hope they refresh the park so it resembles the majesty that she is
