Disneyland Railroad

All aboard! The Disneyland Railroad is finally leaving the station! After over a year of construction for the upcoming Star Wars Land, both Rivers of America and Dinseyland Railroad attractions will be returning to Disneyland Park this summer. Visitors will see that new features have been added to enhance the park’s beauty and functionality.

This artist’s rendering, from Walt Disney Imagineering, shows The Rivers of America now has an elevated trestle for the Disneyland Railroad to travel across. Guests will also enjoy its beautiful waterfront on the new north bank. A new Columbia Gorge section has also been added to The Rivers of America with thundering waterfalls cascading down. Guests aboard the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes, the Sailing Ship Columbia, and the Mark Twain Riverboat will all have excellent views of these new features.

Another wonderful vantage point will be aboard the Disneyland Railroad. Traveling across the new trestle will provide breathtaking views of the new waterfalls. Park guests will notice that the Disneyland Railroad is now making all left turns as it travels around the Disneyland Park.

Visitors will also notice that the Indian Village has changed locations. The village now has a more prominently featured Shaman, who is shown telling the story of how the Indian chief learned from a hummingbird how to make a flute.

Are you looking forward to seeing these changes? After waiting over a year, it will be nice to have these attractions back up and running again for guests to enjoy.
