If you’re heading to Disneyland in the next few months you should know of several closures that will affect your visit. Multiple rides are closed and under lengthy refurbishments, such as Splash Mountain in Disneyland, and most of Paradise Pier in DCA (check our Disneyland Resort Refurbishments page for the exact closing and opening dates). Main Street, U.S.A. is under heavy construction as its horse-drawn street car tracks are being replaced. Take a look at the pictures below to get an idea of the scale of the construction that is happening.
As soon as you walk in to Disneyland’s town square you’ll notice construction walls. The entire area around the flag pole is blocked off.
Disney announced that new brickwork will be installed along with the new trolley track. From the official Disney Parks Blog: “For the first time, the horse-drawn streetcar track on Main Street, U.S.A., will be replaced in its entirety.”
The construction walls extend to near the front of the City Hall and Opera House buildings on either side.The Main Street Vehicles, including the greatest Disney ride ever built, the Omnibus, are not running during the construction on Main Street. The firetruck is available for pictures at certain times during the day. As you can see, there’s not much room to move around.
Construction has not yet started in the middle portion of Main Street.
The portion of the street in front of Main Street Cinema is open and free of construction walls all the way up to Refreshment Corner.
Heading up Main Street, you can see that the hub is also surrounded by construction walls. This means you’ll have to hold off on taking pictures with the Partners statue.
The construction walls take up about half of the street. Thankfully there’s still plenty of room to take pictures in front of the castle.
Also, there’s still plenty of room for the Disneyland Band.
Disney has not confirmed a date for when construction is scheduled to wrap up. But we have heard the Main Street Vehicles will be up and running on Thursday, March 15.
