The Details

Disneyland Railroad, one of the original Disneyland Park attractions and one of the most iconic, reopened July 29, along with the Rivers of America, and both attractions have added new features.

The Rivers of America has always celebrated the Mississippi, Columbia, Missouri and Rio Grande rivers, but the debut of the Columbia Gorge brings five new waterfalls to the ride.

Disneyland Railroad passengers will find a breathtaking view of the Columbia Gorge and its waterfalls from a new trestle that extends across the river.

Erin Glover, editorial content director for Disneyland Resort, notes that longtime park-goers might spot some familiar faces along the Rivers of America, plus throwbacks to Frontierland’s past. 

“Walt Disney’s 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,” she said.
