It’s an iconic piece of Disneyland that many are missing. Good news, there is an opening date for the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America! The Disney Parks Blog has a full timeline on the fan favorite, but the short of it is…Rivers of America will be reopening in Summer of 2017! The area was closed down earlier this year to make room for the huge Star Wars Land expansion. While we still don’t have an opening date on Star Wars, it must mean that the park is far enough along on construction (or plans to be) to reopen the iconic railway and steamboat.
Guests will be able to see an all new riverbank, and elevated trestle over which the Disneyland Railroad will travel. Even more, the attractions that call that area home will be returning as well.
- Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia
- Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island
- Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes
Until next summer, guests can get an up close look at the iconic Steam Engines of the Disneyland railways at New Orleans Square Station.
