It’s been an unusual kind of year at Disneyland. Several of the park’s oldest and most famous attractions have been shut down since January while construction has begun on the high-profile (and huge) Star Wars expansion.
Now, after many months of uncertainly, we’ve finally been giving a (very broad) target re-opening date for those attractions. Today the Disney Parks Blog announced that “Summer 2017” would see the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America back in operation at Walt’s original Magic Kingdom, plus the several other attractions that have been affected by the downtime in that area.

This is a very welcome announcement for Disneyland Resort fans who have recently been inundated with news about changes to existing rides. For once it’s nice to see that something at the parks will be going back to the way it was, albeit in a somewhat altered form. Summer 2017 can’t get here soon enough!
