Mike Fink Keel Boats | Disneyland Description

Mike Fink Keel Boats was an attraction at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, based on the legendary riverboat captain Mike Fink. The attraction opened in 1955 as one of the park’s original attractions, and it operated until 1997, when it was closed and later replaced by the Disneyland Dream Suite.

The attraction consisted of two replica keel boats, the Gullywhumper and the Bertha Mae, which traveled along the Rivers of America. Guests would board the boats and take a leisurely cruise around Tom Sawyer Island, while being entertained by a cast of live actors portraying characters from the era of the American frontier.

Mike Fink Keel Boats was known for its immersive theming and attention to detail. The boats were designed to look like authentic frontier vessels, and the actors were dressed in period costumes and used authentic props and language. The attraction was also popular for its scenic views of the park and the surrounding area.

Although the attraction is no longer in operation, it remains a nostalgic part of Disneyland’s history and is often remembered as one of the park’s most charming and unique attractions.
