After Three Years, Disney Park Attraction FINALLY Returns This Summer!

It’s been a LONG three-year absence, but we’re thrilled to hear that Disney has announced the return of a beloved Disneyland Resort attraction this summer!

That’s right! The family-favorite Red Car Trolley will once again return to Buena Vista Street in Disneyland Resort. Disney revealed in a fun way via social media that the nostalgic attraction will soon be returning to Disney California Adventure in Summer 2022.

Check out the teaser announcement as shared via Disney Parks TikTok video:

Red Car Trolley closed in April 2019 to make way for Avengers Campus construction. The trolley was expected to return in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic ensured a change in plans. Now, three years later, the beautiful red trolleys are preparing for their grand return.

Red Car Trolley offers Disney Park Guests an opportunity to hop aboard a charming vintage trolley for a scenic ride through Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land. It offers continuous service with four stops throughout the Park.

Each trolley runs approximately every 12 minutes between the following locations:

  • Buena Vista Street near the Disney California Adventure Park Main Entrance
  • Carthay Circle across from Carthay Circle Restaurant
  • Hollywood Boulevard near the Disney Animation building
  • Sunset Boulevard past the Hyperion Theater

According to Disney, the stunning Red Car Trolleys are modeled after the Pacific Electric Railway trolleys that crisscrossed the Los Angeles area from 1887 until 1961, with more than 1,000 miles of active track.

Missing the “Red Car News Boys” trolley show? OC Register has confirmed that the show was canceled in 2019 and will not return with the Red Car Trolley this summer.

Meanwhile, at Walt Disney World Resort, we are still awaiting word on when the Walt Disney World Railroad will reopen at Magic Kingdom Park. Although Disney has teased it is being tested, TRON coaster construction continues to keep the railroad attraction “temporarily closed” for over three years now.

Disney fans, get ready to once again enjoy a ride on the Red Car Trolley this summer at Disneyland Resort!

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
