The Mark Twain was originally known as the Mark Twain Steamboat and was built in 1955 for the opening of Disneyland. At the time, it was the first functional steamboat to be constructed in the United States in 50 years. Disney Imagineers meticulously researched real-life steamboats of the past to ensure the Mark Twain captured the essence of the era. Nearly 70 years later, the Mark Twain is still a beloved and iconic attraction at the Disneyland Resort.
