There are few attractions more iconic than the Disneyland Railroad. Sure, the Disneyland Resort features dozens of incredible rides and attractions like Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, “it’s a small world,” and Matterhorn Bobsleds, but few rides compare to hopping aboard a real steam-powered locomotive. The Disneyland Railroad is truly one of the coolest and most legendary experiences found at any of the Disney Parks. As soon as Guests enter Disneyland Park, they’re greeted by the iconic Main Street U.S.A. station.

The Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, also features a railroad at its Magic Kingdom Park, which takes Guests to various lands throughout the park. During the construction of TRON Lightcycle/Run, the Resort’s newest ride, the Walt Disney World Railroad, remained closed for nearly five years. There were several points along the way where we were convinced we’d never see it return, but thankfully, it finally did. TRON Lightcycle/Run can be found next to Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom, allowing guests to step into “The Grid” and experience a thrilling light cycle adventure.

Unfortunately, the Disneyland Railroad is currently closed due to ongoing refurbishments.

As shown on the official Disneyland Resort website, the Disneyland Railroad is currently closed and will remain closed until August 25. It’s possible this refurbishment will last longer, though, so stay tuned here for future updates!

The Disneyland Railroad is a handy way to get around the park. Trains are scheduled to arrive every 5 to 10 minutes at most times throughout the day and travel clockwise around the park.

Hop on or off at one of 4 convenient stations:

  • Main Street, U.S.A.
  • New Orleans Square
  • Mickey’s Toontown
  • Tomorrowland
