    Fantasmic returns to Disneyland July 17, 2017

    Disneyland will celebrate its anniversary on July 17 with the return of Fantasmic, according to an announcement just made on the Disney Parks Blog.

    This summer, iconic Disneyland park attractions make their return with the reopening of Fantasmic!, the Rivers of America attractions and the Disneyland Railroad. We know these classic attractions many of which have delighted guests since the parks opening day are very special to Disneyland park fans, and we are excited to celebrate their return.

    For 25 years, Fantasmic! has taken Disneyland park guests on a journey into Mickey Mouses imagination, and its return on July 17 in celebration of the parks 62nd anniversary will bring new magic to this beloved nighttime spectacular! The treasured Disneyland park experience guests have loved for years, complete with its original fanfare and theme song, will be taken to brilliant new heights. New mist screens will combine with innovative, state-of-the-art projection technology for brighter and more vibrant visuals than ever before, and the show will feature new scenes inspired by Disney animated classics such as Aladdin and The Lion King.





    Also this summer, the classic Rivers of America attractions will reopen, starting with Pirates 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. For decades, guests have traveled the landscapes inspired by four of Americas majestic rivers: the Mississippi, the Columbia, the Missouri and the Rio Grande; each carefully recreated, complete with indigenous rock formations, natural forests and wildlife. The return of these watercraft will bring even more breathtaking views for guests to discover, including an enhanced adventure featuring the new Columbia Gorge section, highlighted by five picturesque waterfalls. Last year, we shared the artists rendering above, courtesy of Walt Disney Imagineering, showing the gorgeous new north bank of the Rivers of America, which will feature a beautiful new waterfront.




    This new waterfront will also include several elevated trestles over which the Disneyland Railroad will travel when it reopens along with the Rivers of America attractions on July 29. An icon for more than 60 years, the Disneyland Railroad holds a special place in the hearts of our guests, and we are excited to take them on the grand circle tour of Walt Disneys original Magic Kingdom once again. This classic experience will also feature new and enhanced adventures! For the very first time, the Disneyland Railroad will make a left-hand turn to continue around Disneyland park, and Im excited to tell you that Walt Disneys legendary dioramas of the Grand Canyon and Primeval World have been carefully restored to their original splendor, with a bit of new magic added to both!


    Dont miss this iconic summer as some of your favorite attractions return to Disneyland park.

    It would be great to have a review of the fastpass options and I wonder if meals will come back in time for this.

    Just saw it on the news as well. I figured it would be around that time after one of the engineers and a conductor said July. Surprised the island is opening up this weekend but glad it will be. I think the way it seems to be opening in phases its a good idea.

    I was reading the comments on the blog and had a good laugh at those begging them to open the railroad sooner because they were going to be there before it for D23.

    A crowded day at Disneyland beats a busy day of housework!!

    According to my princess, its not Star Wars land its "You stole my goats away from me!!......in progress land"
