Rebuilt ‘Queen of the River’ Molly Brown to be re-dedicated at special ceremony this Friday

Molly Brown

It’s official: the Molly Brown riverboat will return to the Rivers of the Far West as planned this Friday, with a special re-dedication ceremony even planned to mark the occasion. Having been practically rebuilt during an extensive year-long restoration, the unique side-wheel riverboat will be re-dedicated by Disneyland Paris ambassadors Régis Alart and Osvaldo del Mistero at 11am this Friday, 25th March. The public event will take place at Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing in Frontierland, so be sure to drop by if you’re visiting the resort and witness a little piece of Disneyland Paris history.

As noted in the comments following our article last week, the riverboat has actually lost her “Queen of River” title during the restoration, with the side wheels now displaying the slightly more generic nomenclature: “Western River Line”. It remains to be seen what other smaller changes may have taken place. DLRP Today will be reporting back from the rebuilt vessel’s maiden cruise and might even tweet a few live updates on Friday — so follow us on Twitter, if you’re not already!

  • Do you know whether they have/are planning to refurb all the effects around the River? They’re in a dreadful state.

  • that sounds nice
    do you know, if they plan to do something about the water? that green looks realy nasty and unnatural.

  • They have been in this state for years and it is not now that they will find the money for the refurb!

  • Thank you for the news and photo.

  • Regarding effects around the lake, we used to like watching the geysers spouting regularly on the right bank with the dinosaur bones as you approach Phantom Manor.
    Havn’t noticed these spouting for some years now.
    Has anyone else seen them working?

  • I havent seen the geysers working either.
    I wonder if they ar going to fix them?
