After closing in early 2016, Disneyland’s Big Thunder Trail reopened today, in Anaheim California’s Disneyland Park. The trail is located behind Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain and connects Frontierland and Fantasyland.

The reopening of the path has produced lots of excitement among the Disney community, as the trail is home to the entrance to the future Star Wars Land. With the path reopening, guests are getting somewhat of a sneak peek at the future Star Wars Land, which is set to open some time in 2019.

While the pathway features new rock formations, in preparation for the future opening of Star Wars Land, we can confirm, thanks to @KevinQuon7, that some of the original decor, such as the animatronic jumping fish, is still there.

Hopefully the reopening of the Big Thunder Trail will ease crowd congestion in the Disneyland park. Along with the reopening of the trail, the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America are both set to return later this Summer.
