Rivers of America in Magic Kingdom has been drained for refurbishment. We spotted some construction workers by the Liberty Square Riverboat track a week ago, and today more work was being done.

A piece of track near Tom Sawyer Island’s docks was being replaced at the time we visited.

The Liberty Square Riverboat and Tom Sawyer Island both closed in October for a three-month refurbishment, but this was later extended to almost five-months. The attractions are now scheduled to remain closed through February 28, 2021.
