  • Why are the canoes and the Seasons of the Vine attraction never open? Help!

    I really like the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes and the Seasons of the Vine attraction in DCA.

    Does anyone know when these are open, or if they may be anytime between Oct 31st and Nov 4th? Weekends only? Summers only? At the whim of a CM? Or what?

    Thanks!

    The Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes are located in Disney's California Adventure?

      The canoes have been operating the last 3 trips I have gone down...last time was October 5-7. Perhaps you are having bad luck or their operation times are limited you are missing them.

      As to the season of the vine, I don't even know what that is, so i can't help ya.

        In my many experiences with Seasons of the Vine...you simply ask a nearby Cast Member working in the Wine Bar/Restaurant area...and they will escort you into the room or find someone that will. I've never been told "Sorry, no." And usually it ends up being a private screening.

          The Canoes are open late but closed early. Let's say they are open for about five hours.

          maybe Karnever will shed a little light on this. Dave?? Dave???

            As I understand it, the Canoes are offered 11 AM to 4 PM weekends only in the off-season, but will be offered 7 days a week during Thanksgiving week, and peak Christmas season in late December.

              Just to note that we have been told no a few times....

                So have I, once with about a group of 25 MiceChatters waiting for tables at the Trattoria, we had about a 45 minute wait, and would have been perfect for the group to sit and relax, but was told NO.

                It also has happened on other occasions.

                  Close, it's 11 AM until 5 PM until Daylight Savings Time ends, then it goes to Noon to 4 PM (we're pushing to get it to be 11 AM to 4 PM) until daylight savings time begins again next spring, then back to 11 AM to 5 PM. We run full time from Memorial Day until Labor Day, then weekends, holidays, Christmas break, spring break, and Thanksgiving week.

                      Good to know. I tried to see this on my trip to DCA a few weeks ago. The CM told me about showings every hour on the hour during those times, but I asked at 5:30. Ah well.

                      He also said it's a seven minute film. Why does it screen only once per hour, and why aren't times listed in the guides?

                              Go ride the Canoes, no paddling necessary, and I recommend an iPod, so you don't have to listen to the bad jokes...


















                              OK, that was a joke, go ride the Canoes and have a FUN time, and make sure and use your oar during the trip
