Riding the Mark Twain for an evening excursion at Disneyland is one of the Park’s greatest treasures. There is little that’s more romantic than cruising through the Rivers of America on a riverboat at twilight. With the day cooling off, clouds of steam linger in tow like breadcrumbs marking a trail. The lights adorning the boat assume the lead role in illuminating the trip and a gentle glow bathes the surrounding landscapes. The limited amount you hear in that secluded corner of Disneyland consists of little outside the steady turn of water on the wheel, the pilot’s narration, a few blows of the whistle and the enjoyment of fellow passengers. It’s one of the few excursions you can have at the Park that feels like it takes its time. But even with that, it will almost certainly leave you wanting more.
