Although Disney Parks Cast Members do everything they can to make sure rides and attractions remain operational for Guests every day, sometimes unexpected downtime does occur. Today, two of Disneyland Resort’s most popular rides — Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are experiencing unanticipated temporary closures.

As you can see below, the Disneyland app currently notes that Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is “Temporarily Closed” in Frontierland at Disneyland Park.

Disneyland officially describes Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as:

Legend has it that after gold was discovered in the 1850s, eerie incidents took place in the mine. Trains would take off and race through tunnels… by themselves.

As you enter the cursed cavern, your train speeds up along the rickety track. Shoot under a booming waterfall and dodge a falling boulder from an unexpected landslide as you swoop around sharp turns and drop into desolate canyons.

On this rip-roaring adventure, you may learn that some legends turn out to be true…

Disneyland officially describes Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance as:

The Resistance needs your help! 

Hidden in the forest outside Black Spire Outpost, the Resistance is gathering recruits for a secret mission.

With the First Order desperate to extinguish the spark of the Resistance, the mission is bound to have unexpected twists and turns. When your transport is captured by an imposing First Order Star Destroyer filled with legions of stormtroopers—and even Kylo Ren!—you’re going to need all the help you can get. Fortunately, a covert team of Resistance fighters—including Rey and BB-8—is at the ready to give you a fighting chance to escape… and a chance for the Resistance to rise.

Prepare for a thrilling, first-of-its-kind adventure!
