It’s the season of refurbishments right now with Disneyland Main Street USA and Dumbo the Flying Elephant both getting updates starting January 8th.
Main Street USA vehicles will be temporarily out of order as the horse-drawn streetcar track on Main Street, U.S.A. is getting completely replaced. While parts of the Main Street U.S.A., track have been replaced in the past, this will be the first complete replacement and will incorporate new brickwork, enhancing the look of the iconic section of the park. Don’t worry, the pieces of original track that remain today are going to be salvaged and preserved, and the previously updated pieces of track will be recycled.
Over in fantasyland Dumbo the Flying Elephant is also getting an upgrade with a new queue location which will make it more comfortable and easier access for guests including a a new shade structure, and the attraction itself is getting a paint job.
No re-opening date has been set for either the Main Street USA Vehicles or Dumbo the Flying Elephant, but their expected to be back in use by Late Winter/Early Spring 2018
