Swan Boats

The Plaza Swan Boats was a Magic Kingdom attraction that took guests on a tour around the moat of the hub with a brief stop in Adventureland to circle the Swiss Family Treehouse.


The Plaza Swan Boats operated from May 20, 1973 to August 1983. Originally, the fleet consisted of twelve boats, with one being repurposed later for cleaning the canals. Plagued by maintenance issues with their natural gas engines and guidance systems, the fleet was reduced to five by the time the attraction shut down.
