/* Attraction History */
Nevertheless, by 1973, the Plaza Swan Boats were officially open. At this time, Disney repurposed the original Swan Boat dock as seating for the extremely popular [[Plaza Ice Cream Parlor]]. In conjunction with this change, a new dock was constructed near the Tomorrowland bridge. While the reasons for moving the attraction are unclear, the new dock had a much longer queue, which combined with the new location, would help alleviate some of the crowd by the [[Plaza Ice Cream Parlor]] and the [[Plaza Restaurant]].
The Swan Boats ran seasonally until 1993, when the attraction was permanently closed. At this time, many of the attraction's boats were sold off to private collectors. Following the closure of the attraction, the Swan Boat loading dock became the entrance to the Magic Kingdom's Rose Garden. During the 2014 refurbishment of the park's hub however, the structure was demolished.
