Classics Return to Disneyland Park this Summer: Fantasmic!, Rivers of America and Disneyland Railroad


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 park’s 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 Mouse’s imagination, and its return on July 17, 2017 – in celebration of the park’s 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 Pirate’s 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, 2017. For decades, Guests have traveled the landscapes inspired by four of America’s 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 artist’s 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, 2017. 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 Disney’s 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 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!
Make sure you don’t miss this iconic summer as some of these favorite attractions return to Disneyland Park.

Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America Attractions Return to Disneyland Park this Summer with New Magic

When the iconic Disneyland® Railroad and the Rivers of America attractions return to Disneyland Park this summer, you will discover new magic aboard these classic experiences. As Disney first shared last year, and seen in the artist’s rendering below (courtesy of Walt Disney Imagineering), the gorgeous new north bank of the Rivers of America will feature a beautiful new waterfront and an elevated trestle over which the iconic Disneyland Railroad will travel.
The Rivers of America will continue to celebrate the Mississippi, Columbia, Missouri and Rio Grande rivers, enhanced now with a new Columbia Gorge section, highlighted by thundering waterfalls – signaling the return of large waterfalls to the rivers. Longtime Disneyland park fans will remember Big Thunder River Waterfall and Twin Sisters Waterfall; five spectacular new waterfalls along the Rivers of America harken back to these favorites – all on display for guests aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes.
You will also experience these features from aboard the Disneyland Railroad, which will travel across the rocks on a trestle that will even extend onto the river, providing a breathtaking view of the new waterfalls. And, for the first time ever, the Disneyland Railroad will be making a left-hand turn as it circles the park.
In addition to the new waterfalls, you will spot some familiar faces along the Rivers of America as well as throwbacks to Frontierland’s past. The Indian Village, now in a new location, will include a more prominently featured Shaman, seen telling the story of how the hummingbird taught the Indian chief to make a flute.
We’ll have more to share on these returning attractions soon – including opening dates – so stay tuned!

5 Reasons why Disney crowd calendars can be off or seem off when they aren't

This year more so than any other year I have read and even had some people call up my business to yell at me that my crowd calendar was wrong. To see my crowd calendar, please click here.  The ironic annoying part is these people didn't book with me, so they just called to yell that I offer free advice and I have even explained how I came up with the number. The strange thing is most of the time when I fact check with the figures of how packed the park was...I am usually not that far off on my numbers. (there were honestly a few days in January I was way off but I contributed that to the first time a lot Annual Pass holders were blocked for the holiday and they needed their Disney fix and flooded the park as soon as they were allowed to go again, so that is the first time in history this happen so of course it made my calendar wrong since my calendar is based off of PAST crowd levels, this was a new event that was unexpected, I don't even think Disney expect it.) Anyways, why it feels more crowded at the parks.

1. The biggest change is the amount of area Disney had to shut down in order to work on Star Wars land. I don't think people take in to consideration how much of an area Disney had to block off to star building Disney, and with this area cut off, the attractions and the walking path that was alleviated when this area was open is now not there. Think about it, those big ships can hold a few hundred people, and the train around the world can too, then the island, last but not the least the petting zoo and walking path even took some of the crowd. (Though maybe not much, as it was my favorite spot to head to when my autistic son wanted some quite time to unwind and I miss it dearly.)

2. Annual pass holder...as my opening paragraph said the new tier system affect the crowds in ways that couldn't have been predicted.  But not only is the new tier system affecting the crowds, there are probably over 70,000 annual pass holders within 20 minutes of Disneyland park, and if all of them showed up in the evening the park would be at 70% full, and they are constantly asking in groups if the park is empty, and I swear when one says yes about 1/2 of the jet down to the park and then they are all on social media complaining that its packed now. The data I am given gives the average crowds in the park during the day. Its an over all average, they extra people showing up in the last hours usually aren't factored in.

3. Disneyland has caught on to the patterns of crowds, and their new tiered system for 1 day tickets are bringing more of a crowd. They did not have 1 day, (except for the crazy raining days) where the park was at 10%, this was a first in a few years, so that affects my calendar but even then I was usually only off by a point. Disney is doing what they really wish for...they want their park to never be empty.

4. Adding to the value days, Disney knowing its a value day and they schedule most of their ride maintenance or (refurbishments) for these times. So, we have Disney offering people to come in for a cheaper price...thus adding to the crowds, then they shut down more rides, limiting what people can go on. We already touched on this with star wars land, and how that area being closed off has affect crowds but even without Star Wars Land,  the yearly ride maintenance shut downs have affect crowds but not to this extend as it has this year. Or perhaps its the last reason...

5. This is my own opinion but frankly I find that peoples attitudes have affected peoples perceptions of things. It has been debated often in the "Disneyland" annual pass Facebook fan site what is considered an empty park and the opinions vary largely. And many people see the park at 2 and thinks I'll be able to walk on everything. That isn't the case, at least not for all the rides. Plus, there have been some studies that show people in theme parks tend to bunch up in certain areas and one family may be saying gee I am walking on everything today and another will be at the park and claim they had to wait 20+ minutes for everything. Why is that? I really don't know, but I know it happens more often than not, is it perception? luck? or something else? I am not sure. I'll love to hear your opinion.

Either way, please know I am providing this data out of the kindness of my heart. It is based on PAST HISTORY. History I guess changes more now than ever or perhaps its just perceptions. I really wish I had a crystal ball to truly predict the best times to go to Disney but I can't I can just give my best educated guest based on past history.  I provide this information in the hopes of families booking their Disney vacations with me so I can support my son. So with that said...here is my pitch for why you should used me as your travel agent.

I would like to inform you that when you book with RMH Travel it doesn't cost one cent more than booking direct with Disney, in fact your statement will look the same because you are booking with Disney, but you are allowing RMH Travel to book it on your behalf and in return Disney will give me a small commission that goes toward supporting my family. But if you book direct, Disney just pockets that money, so please when you book your vacations, please consider booking it with me.
