Storybook Land Canal Boats

A gentle and serene boat ride which begins by entering the gaping mouth of "Monstro," the whale from Disney’s "Pinocchio" and proceeds down a meandering canal route lined with scaled-down scenes from popular Disney movies.

Among those you’ll see include the Sultan’s Palace from ‘Aladdin’, the dwarfs' cottage from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the Village from "Cinderella" and Toad Hall from "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad."

All of the wonderfully detailed scenes are surrounded by landscaped gardens which include fine examples of Japanese bonsai trees (one of which was planted by Walt) and plants of many species and colours.

An original attraction that opened with the park on July 17, 1955. For the first year there were just canal boats, the Storybook Land part was only added in 1956.
The attraction is kept up to date with scenes from contemporary Disney stories.
The lighthouse at the entrance was originally a ticket booth, from when guests had to present tickets to ride each attraction.
Storybook Land Canal Boats was a "D-ticket" ride.
All of the boats are named after female Disney characters, with the exception of "Flower," the male skunk from Bambi. Their names are: Ariel, Alice, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Daisy, Faline, Flora, Fauna, Flower, Katrina, Merryweather, Snow White, Tinker Bell, Wendy.
Miniature scenes include: Toad Hall (The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad), The dwarfs' cottage and mine (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), The Sultan's palace (Aladdin), village and castle (Cinderella), King Triton's Castle - hidden behind the waterfall (Little Mermaid).
The miniature houses are fitted with tiny doors so that the electricians can change the lightbulbs inside.
The canal contains 465,000 gallons of water. It flows via underground pipes to the Sleeping Beauty Castle moat, the Jungle Cruise and through to the Rivers of America, where it is pumped back to Storybook Land.
