Pana-Vue Slide: Canoe and Keelboat

Two now extinct attractions can be found in this Walt Disney World souvenir Pana-Vue slide. Slide WDW-305 from the Frontierland set features guests paddling along in an Indian War Canoe as the Bertha Mae keelboat navigates the river not far away. In the distance to the left can be seen the Haunted Mansion. The Admiral Joe Fowler Riverboat can be seen on the right side of the picture, behind a still undeveloped Tom Sawyer Island. Though the slide caption identifies the canoe as an "Indian War Canoe," the attraction was referred to as the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes.
