It’s official! Disneyland is eliminating the Red Car News Boys Trolley show that greets visitors to Disney’s California Adventure.
The trolley show features singing, dancing newsboys who arrive on a (replica) of the region’s Pacific Electric Red Car Trolley. The Red Car News Boys Trolley show was inspired by the Disney “Newsies” musical play and movie featuring songs from the 1920s and 1930s.
Unfortunately, this show needs to go due to the construction of the new Marvel Land, which disrupts the path of the trolley car.
Park officials made the statement, “Based on viewership trends and the needs of our business, we have closed the show.”
A Disney cast member of the trolley show said in an Instagram Post under the user name @jancolby, “I’m incredibly sad to say goodbye! Throughout the last 6 years, I go to work with incredibly talented people who I considered my family who taught me how to be confident in who I am on and off stage.”

❤️The Red Car Trolley played a significant part in my life by taking me to where I am today. This little show means a lot to me and I’m incredibly sad to say goodbye! Throughout the last 6 years, I got to work with incredibly talented people who I consider my family who taught me how to be confident in who I am on and off stage. To my newsboys family, no doubt about it, you’ll make millions of people happy someday! Seize the day my friends! My last show will be on Monday, July 22 and the show will be closing on Tuesday July 23. #RedCarTrolleyNewsBoys #redcarnewsboys
The highly energetic show will make its final appearance on July 22 for an official closed date of July 23, 2019.
