Iconic attraction reopens with new landscapes and views along the rivers of America
Guests visiting the Disneyland Resort this summer will enjoy the magical mix of nostalgia, night-time entertainment and new attractions that make the Resort a guest favourite year after year.
Once again, guests will enter Walt Disney's original Magic Kingdom to the sounds of train whistles and chugging engines, a familiar part of the Disneyland Railroad. The steam-powered locomotives, among the few still operating today, take guests on a relaxing and entertaining tour through the park.
The Disneyland Railroad, an original Disneyland attraction and park icon, has reopened to the public on July 29, 2017. This fan-favourite attraction now travels a new scenic route along the north bank of the Rivers of America, where it traverses stunning new rockwork and waterfalls, providing guests with breath-taking views along both sides of the train.
Guests also will enjoy this new landscape from the water as they welcome the return of the popular watercraft – Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes.
Another classic, “Fantasmic!,” re-opened July 17 on the Rivers of America, telling the story of Mickey Mouse and his vivid imagination. Guests cheered as they welcomed back this night-time spectacular's classic theme song and the engaging storyline that has been treasured for 25 years. Explorers also celebrated the re-opening of Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island in June.
