Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Main Street U.S.A Vehicles To Close for Refurbishment at Disneyland

Two of Disneyland’s original park attraction will be closing temporarily starting on January 8th for some much-needed TLC.  For the first time, the horse-drawn streetcar track on Main Street U.S.A will be replaced in its entirety. This means that the Main Street U.S.A vehicles will be unavailable to ride while the renovations take place.  Also, Dumbo the Flying Elephant will receive a new queue location which means a temporary closure.

Dumbo will close beginning on January 8th  so that Disney can move the location of its queue and erect a new shade structure for guests. The attraction will also get a paint job with Dumbo looking as good as new by the time it re-opens in Early Spring.

While sections of the  Main Street U.S.A track have been replaced before, this is the first time a complete replacement has been scheduled.  The refurbishment will incorporate new brickwork that will enhance the look of the iconic thoroughfare.  The pieces of original track that remain will be salvaged and preserved.  The previously updated pieces of track will be recycled.
