A Legendary Vessel

Board the 110-foot-long, fully rigged Columbia and sail away into a long-forgotten time. Marvel at the towering mainmast and inspect the cannons and deck-mounted guns the crew used to repel pirate attacks.

As you cruise around Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island, relive the pioneering adventures of the original Columbia, the first American ship to circumnavigate the globe.

It took the real Columbia 3 years to sail around the world, but your voyage will last about 15 minutes.

Printed on the Sailing Ship Columbia is Columbia, Disneyland U.S.A.

Along the River

During your cruise, enjoy the sights and sounds of 3 different lands—the backwoods of Frontierland, the wrought-iron railings of New Orleans Square and the peak of Chick-A-Pin Hill towering over Critter Country.

You may also glimpse:

  • The north bank of the Columbia Gorge, complete with a beautiful waterfront and sparkling waterfalls
  • he rustic cabin of a frontier settler
  • An idyllic Native American village
  • A busy beaver chewing on the train trestle
  • A moose enjoying a leisurely lunch
  • The Disneyland Railroad steaming into the wilderness

The Columbia follows the same path as Mark Twain Riverboat and Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes.
