‘Star Wars’ land tops out and the Disneyland Railroad’s back on track – Orange County Register
It was full steam ahead for the Disneyland Railroad as the train that takes guests on “a complete trip around Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom” returned to the rails.
But the return also meant lines for the attraction at all four of its stations as many wanted to check out the new scenic vistas Disney Imagineers created in Frontierland, and experience the new visual effects added to the Grand Canyon Diorama and Primeval World.
Meanwhile, at a construction site not so far away, construction crews, without any help from the Empire, topped out the two buildings that will house the two main attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, scheduled to open in 2019.
The walls and roofs of the buildings will soon be in place, making it harder for anyone, including spies from the Empire, wanting to catch a glimpse of the construction activities to see anything.
Around the Rivers of America, visitors are once again paddling on the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes.
The cranes are standing tall above the two main buildings that will house the two main attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland when it opens in 2019.

Not much to see here behind the show building that houses “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” attraction in Critter Country. Just a sign on the backside of the building. Not much movement in a sign, unlike the backside of water. (Photo by Mark Eades, Orange County Register/SCNG)

The trees on the new berm around the river are not tall enough yet to block the view of the front side of the Mickey & Friends parking structure. (Photo by Mark Eades, Orange County Register/SCNG)
