Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia, Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes––Cruise along the Rivers of America, inspired by four of America’s majestic rivers, in one (or all!) of these historic Disneyland vessels when they return on July 29. There’s even more to explore just around the river bend, thanks to the new Columbia Gorge section, featuring five stunning waterfalls.
