Shortly after Disneyland park opened its gates, Casey Jr. Circus Train “came down the track” for the first time on July 31, 1955.

The Fantasyland attraction, based on the classic Disney animated film “Dumbo,” features animal cages and ornate sleighs which take guests full steam ahead on fanciful train ride.

As you can see, a simple scenery surrounded the attraction until the miniature scenes of Storybook Land were added with the opening of the Storybook Land Canal Boats in 1956.

Casey Jr. Circus Train continues to delight guests (monkeys and wild animals too!) from around the world. “All aboard! Let’s go!”
