We've been eagerly waiting for one of our favorite Disney nighttime spectaculars to come back…
Well after some time of waiting we finally know when Fantasmic! and Rivers of America are making their return to Disneyland Park! The Fantasmic! return date will be July 17th, meanwhile you’ll be able to circle the park on the Disneyland Railroad July 29th. Honestly I’m a bit surprised at these dates as they are late into the Summer imo, and most of the people that will be visiting during the D23 Expo won’t be able to see these changes unfortunately!
Fantasmic! has been closed since the beginning of 2016 for a refurbishment to the show which will see Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King and Tangled all added to the show. The return date which will be celebrating the park’s 62nd anniversary is also going to have new mist screens and new projection technology which will add a whole new level to it, all the while keeping that Fantasmic! music you love so much!
Rivers of America, which has always been a fan favorite has been getting a facelift too and will first see the Rafts to Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island return July 16th, then the rest of the water attractions will be back by July 29th, including: Mark Twain River Boat, Sailing Ship Columbia and the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes.
And circling high above the Rivers of America on a brand new trestle will be the Disneyland Railroad, with a brand new trip through the restored Grand Canyon and Primeval World.
It’s going to be a great Summer at the Disneyland Resort, don’t miss it!
