Fantasmic! Reopens

One of the things we are so excited about is on Monday, July 17, is the anniversary of the 1955 grand opening of Disneyland. This year on July 17th the park will premiere the newly enhanced “Fantasmic!,” the extremely popular nighttime spectacular. This is always our favorite nighttime show and one our girls have enjoyed time and time again. The show will feature scenes from new scenes with characters from “Aladdin,” “Tangled,” “The Lion King” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”  Our family is looking forward to making magical new memories and it’s going to be Fantasmic!


Rivers Of America Updates and Openings

Also beginning on July 29, the Disneyland Railroad will once again open. Taking guests on a Grand Circle Tour of Walt Disney’s original Magic Kingdom. The classic Rivers of America attractions  which include the Mark Twain Riverboat, and the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes will  hit the water on July 29!

The Disneyland Railroad is going to open with breathtaking new news along the north bank of Rivers of America. There is a new Columbia Gorge section that feature five new waterfalls. The landscapes are inspired by four of America’s majestic rivers–the Mississippi, the Columbia, the Missouri and the Rio Grande and be sure to look out for wildlife in the area.


Main Street Electrical Parade

Also through summer be sure to catch the Main Street Electrical Parade which has nightly performances through Aug. 20. It’s a must see with the entire family and the perfect way to end an incredible memory making day at the Disneyland Resort.
