Since it reopened in April 2021 after a historic pandemic closure, Disneyland Resort was a different one than Guests had ever seen. When it reopened, character meet and greets were socially distanced, certain areas were closed off, and certain experiences — like parades and nighttime shows — were unavailable. However, in the year since, steps have slowly been taken to bring things back to normal and Guests are once again seeing the Disneyland Resort they know and love.

Recently, Disney brought back its nighttime fireworks shows, as well as World of Color at Disney California Adventure Park. Fantasmic! will also return to the Happiest Place in just a few weeks. And now, Disney has shared that another California Adventure staple will be chugging along Buena Vista Street. Disney Parks shared on its official TikTok that the Red Car Trolley will be returning to DCA this summer!

Guests can take the beloved Red Car Trolley from the entrance of California Adventure all the way down to Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission – BREAKOUT! and Avengers Campus. However, if you were hoping to see the Red Trolley Newsboys, we are sad to say they will not be returning with the Red Car Trolley.

Here is more information on the Red Car Trolley from the Disneyland Resort website:

Continuous Service with 4 Convenient Stops

Trolleys run approximately every 12 minutes between the following locations:

  • Buena Vista Street near the Disney California Adventure Park Main Entrance
  • Carthay Circle across from Carthay Circle Restaurant
  • Hollywood Boulevard near the Disney Animation building
  • Sunset Boulevard past the Hyperion Theater

Rolling Right Out of History

The Red Car Trolleys are modeled after the Pacific Electric Railway trolleys that crisscrossed the Los Angeles area from 1887 until 1961, with more than 1,000 miles of active track.

The Red Car Trolley has been out of commission since 2019, when Disney closed it as they completed work on the new Avengers Campus.

Are you excited to see the Red Car Trolley return to Disney California Adventure?
