Open/Close: On most days Mark Twain Riverboat begins circling the Rivers of America when the park opens. On days when Fantasmic is being performed, the Mark Twain will close a couple hours before showtime. On other nights the Mark Twain will run through the evening, with the final trip beginning about 30 minutes before park closing. A sign at the loading area will list the day's last trip.
Wait Times: Unless you approach just before it leaves, it is uncommon to have to wait for a second boat. A new trip departs every 20 minutes.
Length of Ride: 12 minutes
Single Rider: No
Queue Description: Mark Twain Riverboat does not have a queue so much as a waiting area. The area is made up to look like a real riverboat loading area, with cargo deliveries sharing space on the dock. Historic United States flags are displayed in front of the waiting area.
Health Restriction: None, this attraction should be safe and comfortable for all conditions.
Ride Access: Access to the waiting area is through a turnstile. If you are unable to move through a turnstile go to the waiting area's exit gate for admission. The lower deck of the Mark Twain is fully accessible, but the second and third deck require climbing stairs.
Wheelchair Transfer: It is not necessary to transfer from wheelchairs. Wheelchair and ECV users should be prepared, however, to board first and exit last. The reason for this is that weight of passengers lowers the boat by several inches and the boat is flush with the dock only when nearly empty of passengers.
Service Animals: Yes
Audio: The trip around the Rivers of America is narrated. Audio assistance is not available, but audio is not necessary to enjoy the trip.
Weight and Size Issues: None
