Disneyland announces summer 2017 opening for Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America


Due to all the construction changes that needed to be made to accommodate Star Wars Land at Disneyland, the park is rerouting the Disneyland Railroad and in doing so, had to shut down a few attractions that will now reopen in summer 2017.

These are the attractions that will be reopening:

  • Fantasmic!
  • Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia
  • Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island
  • Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes

The Disneyland Railroad will reopen with a new riverbank and an elevated trestle that rerouted the train to accommodate Star Wars Land construction.
