DL Railroad

Beginning this month, guests at the Disneyland Resort will have unique, limited-time opportunities to experience some favorite Disneyland attractions in new ways. Have you ever wondered how the Disneyland Railroad steam engines run or what the Jungle Cruise skippers do when not in their boats? You’ll soon get to find out!

The Disneyland Railroad will be temporarily closed this year while construction begins for Star Wars Land. While it’s closed, you can get up-close with the historic steam engines and learn about them firsthand from the train engineers and even take a picture with an engine. Each engine will be accompanied by knowledgeable train engineers, who will share fun facts, details on how the engines operate, stories from the history of the Disneyland Railroad and more.

Head over to the Main Street or New Orleans Square Train Stations for this unique experience!

The world-famous Jungle Cruise will also be closed for refurbishment early this year. While it’s closed the skippers will be in front of the attraction sharing their stories, adventures and humor with guests. Stop by for an entertaining chat while the Jungle Navigation Company headquarters readies for reopening later this year.

There will also be new, limited-time experiences aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia.

More information about those is still to come.
