The Liberty Belle Riverboat is a real, working paddle steamer, built entirely from scratch in dry dock at Walt Disney World. Everything about the Belle is authentic and working, except for the steering, since the boat travels on a steel track hidden underwater.

Thanks Alex. :mickey2:

I have a question, that I'm hoping you can answer (since you seem to know all! :notworth:). Where do they have that dry dock? I've been to commercial dry docks around the world and they are huge facilities. I realize that the Libery Belle wouldn't need a huge facility, but I'm interested to know where it is. Do they do work on the ferries (for the TTC) there as well?
