Justin has more than 15,000 followers and more than 2.2 million likes, so the video invite is destined to reach the masses.

“The canoes” Justin is referring to are the Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes located in Critter Country at Disneyland Park. The official ride description reads:

Named after the legendary 19th century icon, Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes lets you travel back to a time when water was the way to go.

The 20-passenger vessels are real, free-floating canoes; there is no motor and no track. Modeled after the boats that early Native American and European explorers used, these 35-foot-long canoes are powered entirely by paddles.

As you cruise full-circle around the island, charming surprises await you around every bend. Come grab a paddle and discover the wonders of the last great frontier!

According to Justin’s video, he plans to ride the attraction from 1:30 pm until closing, urging followers to meet him there.

Fans have already begun to RSVP via the comment section, with several replying to count them in. One user called the canoes Disneyland’s best kept attraction secret.
