In announcing the grand opening date of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street to be June 15, today Disneyland also revealed a first look at the Red Car Trolleys that will be riding through the park this summer. Prior to today, the best look offered of this retro-style transportation was in concept artwork like this:

But contained within a new overview video of the soon-completing 5-year expansion project of the Disney California Adventure theme park is a great glimpse at what these shiny new trolleys will look like when taking passengers through the park:

Starting June 15, guests will enter Disney California Adventure along Buena Vista Street, a place that will transport them to an era when Walt Disney arrived in California with new dreams: 1920s Los Angeles. Buena Vista Street will feature Red Car Trolleys, inspired by the transportation system that once served Southern California, and the Carthay Circle Theatre, modeled after the site of the 1937 world premiere of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

Here are a few select images taken from the video above:

The view down Buena Vista Street toward the new Carthay Circle Theatre shows the area is still very much under construction but offers a good look at the track on which the Red Car Trolleys will travel:

Disney California Adventure will close for one day on June 14 for a media preview of Buena Vista Street, the Red Car Trolleys, and the massive Cars Land, which includes many new attractions. It will reopen on June 15 with all of these new elements ready for the public to enjoy.
