Many classic attractions such as Fantasmic!, the Disneyland Railroad, and the Rivers of America attractions have been closed since last summer to reroute Rivers of America and the train to make room for an un-named Star Wars Land. The Disney Parks Blog announced yesterday these attractions will be returning this summer.
Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island will open on June 16th. The Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes will be welcomed back on July 29. The Columbia Gorge section will be breathtaking with new waterfalls and rock-work. The old Indian Village will also be returning.
One of our favorite attractions, Fantasmic! will return on July 17th to celebrate Disneyland’s 62nd anniversary. The show did receive an update with new scenes from Aladdin and The Lion King. There have also been rumors of a new Pirates of the Caribbean scene on the Sailing Ship Columbia and possibly a new Tangled scene. We can’t wait to hear the old theme song mixed with new mist screens and new technology. It will be truly magical.
And let’s not forget, the Disneyland Railroad will return July 29th. For the first time in its history it will make a left-hand turn which is pretty exciting! The Grand Canyon and Primeval World dioramas have also been updated.
