I still have my certificate and team t-shirt from participating in the 1984 Canoe Olympics (the summer Olympics were in Los Angeles that year).

I miss the canoes at WDW. It was one of my favorite rides. The best part of the ride was the “cheese jokes” that each guide told.

My favorite memory of being a River Guide was having a canoe full of nuns. We just *flew* around the River!

My son Kelson was in the video. He is the 2 year old in the blue floppy hat getting his life vest on and giving a thumbs up! He loves the canoe rides!!!

We just rode the canoes for the first time on our trip this month. My three kids and I loved it! It was one of our favorite parts of our visit. The guides were very funny. It was a great new way to experience the waterways.

I remember when I was young our canoe was hijacked by a rowing team LOL
