Disneyland’s Fantasmic!, Rivers of America and Disneyland Railroad return this summer

This summer marks the return to Disneyland of some of its attractions with the reopening of “Fantasmic!,” the Rivers of America attractions and the Disneyland Railroad.

“Fantasmic!” returns on July 17 to celebrate the park’s 62nd anniversary. There will be new additions to this classic show.  New mist screens will combine with state-of-the-art projection technology for brighter and more vibrant visuals  and the show will feature new scenes inspired by Disney animated classics such as “Aladdin” and “The Lion King.”

Also this summer Rivers of America attractions will reopen, starting with Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island this Friday, June 16, followed by Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes on July 29. The Rivers will feature the new Columbia Gorge section with a new waterfront, five new waterfalls and the train trestle that the Disneyland Railroad will travel on when it reopens on July 29.
