Attention, Disneyland fans! Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland Resort has been undergoing refurbishment for the past three months, and it is finally complete.
The horse-drawn streetcar track itself was entirely repaved and the horses are back in action, making their usual rounds up and down the street.
According to the OC Register, Disneyland has 18 horses that pull 24 passengers around a 3,500 foot loop, which comes out to about two-thirds of a mile. This refurbishment was done in order to make the track safer in a few different ways. It's not only safer for park-goers to walk on, but it's also better for the horses' hooves. They added 50,000 bricks to the track!
This marks just one of the many refurbishments and new improvements coming to the Disneyland Resort. The original Anaheim theme park along with California Adventure is currently gearing up for Pixar Fest, starting April 13.
Pixar Fest will feature a firework spectacular called "Together Forever," which will be based around plenty of the Disney•Pixar classics and new favorites. Coco, Inside Out, Toy Story, Monsters Inc. and more are confirmed to be included in this magical new show. They will also be selling Disney•Pixar themed treats such as a Toy Story alien macaron and a Finding Dory cake pop.
Disney fans have another thing to be excited about — a fan-favorite parade called Paint The Night is making its return! It originally ran from 2015 to 2017 in the Disneyland Resort, but this time around it will be taking place in Disney's California Adventure! They even added an Incredibles float considering the long-awaited Incredibles 2 comes out on June 15.
On May 3, Disneyland After Dark will be hosting a sold out Star Wars Nite. Fans attending this event will be among the first to meet Rey at Star Wars Launch Bay, experience the new “March of the First Order" and more!
Following all of this other excitement, Pixar Pier will be opening on June 23 at Disney's California Adventure Park! This new land takes the place of Paradise Pier, and will feature new foods and updated rides. California Screamin' has even been reimagined into the Incredicoaster! It's out with the old and in with the new in Anaheim, CA.
It's crazy to see how many updates are coming to the Disneyland Resort in the next few months, starting with the Main Street U.S.A. refurbishment. This is sure to be a great summer for Disneyland fans!
