New Rivers of America, Railroad route revealed at Disneyland

It’s a big weekend at Disneyland, two of the park’s original attractions – the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America – returned to Disneyland after a long hiatus to help the park prepare for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. John Lasseter, who, among his many roles is principal creative advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering, was on hand to rededicate the railroad with a new to Disneyland engine and, for the first time, a left-hand turn.

Want to take the trip yourself? You can enjoy it virtually this morning via the magic of this video recorded live over the weekend:

Once the flora fills in a bit, I think the Rivers of America will once again feel like it’s old self again. There are certainly plenty of fun scenes to enjoy as your enjoy your lazy trip aboard the Mark Twain.

And here’s another Facebook live from the perspective of the new Disneyland Railroad circuit:

Do you have a favorite moment from either attraction that you’re happy to see back or sad to see has gone?
