Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post! Thank you for joining Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and myself for some great Disney trivia! Today we are taking a look at the Rivers of America at Disneyland! I hope you enjoy today’s trivia!
Rivers of America 2003
Disneyland’s 6-million gallon Rivers of America is drained, putting a stop to the boat cruises and cutting off access to Tom Sawyer Island. Although a 2,000-foot long, 8-foot tall blue fence surrounds the dried up area, park guests still peek through cracks to view the boats’ underwater tracks. To entertain guests until the Rivers of America are refilled, Disney employees dressed as Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher re-enact the fence-painting scene from Mark Twain’s classic novel “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.”
I hope you have enjoyed this weeks look back to 2003! Until next time, make it a Disney day! Do you have a blog and would like to contribute to our collection?

Wow! Rivers of America holds quite a lot of water!
Thanks, Kimberly! Have a great day!
How cool! We Guests like to look through cracks in fences, don’t we? I’m glad they realize this at Walt Disney World and actually built a window where we can view the work being done on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! LOL
Great trivia this week, Mike!
Thank you Heidi, and thank you for creating such an awesome, incredible graphic too! Stay warm, my friend!
That’s got to be one large drain. Wonder how long it took to drain. It would be interesting to see all the tracks in the dried out bed. Thanks for sharing this week!
Oh how neat! I wonder if Tom and Becky tried to talk guests into painting the fence for them,
