With the construction of Star Wars Land underway, several changes had to be made to the iconic ‘Rivers of America’ at Disneyland Park. The Disneyland Railroad had to be re-routed, the back of Tom Sawyer Island “shaved down,” Rivers of America diverted, and Fantasmic’s backstage storage facility needed to be relocated. What a mess!
Thankfully, the end is in sight! Disney announced today that Disneyland Railroad, Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia, Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer Island, Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes, and (hallelujah!) Fantasmic will return to Disneyland next summer!
With a new attraction opening at Disney California Adventure, Star Wars Land construction trucking along, and Rivers Of America opening again, 2017 promises to be an exciting year at Disneyland Resort!
