  • Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes - An Appreciation Thread

    During the early meet yesterday, a few of us decided to take a cruise around the Rivers of America in the Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes. This is an attraction that I have always loved, but don't experience on every trip. It was great fun riding in the canoes, having a race between two MiceChatter canoes, all the while trying not to splash ourselves or our canoe-mates too much. My son even got embarassed by the CMs with the bestest birthday song. This is one of the most fun times I have had on the Canoes.

    I must say that I love going on the canoes. Even with the inevitability of getting some of the green water on my clothes, it is still worth it for the pleasure of experiencing the canoes. I have yet to have a bad experience with a CM on the canoes. They are always friendly.

    So I am thankful that the Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes are still around for us to experience at Disneyland.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    NO GOATS!

    I agree.
    I love the Canoes - I feel like I am truly experiencing a part of the 'adventure' that Walt Disney created - simple innocent canoes, yet so much fun!

    If I ever got the honor of being a CM at Disneyland, I would want to work on the Canoes.

          Yesterday was my first time ever on the canoes, and now I can't wait to go back. I remember your son wanting to get off, but I bet he's glad he stayed now.

            He says it is one of his favorite rides now. He can't wait to go back.

                  I remember about 3 years ago being on the canoes and my cell phone rang...and I took the call.

                  I bet Walt Disney would find that idea hysterical......

                    Thanks DisDad--I don't sound too bitter over the pirate-thing, do I?

                        The Canoes are fun! I don't go on them very often but when I do go, it's always a good time! I like going on them in big groups. Just adds to the magic.

There are just things that you need to talk to other women with. You may have the best relationship in the world with your husband, but there are just times you need your girlfriends. It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.

                          And the 'accidental' splashing with the oars.

                            If done properly, one can drown the shipmate behind you.

                              Or the person in front of you if you scoop the water up with your paddle just the right way. (Apologies again to Savik101 for his drenching by my son.)
