RIVERS OF AMERICA -- As part of an ongoing, planned expansion at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., the Rivers of America at Disneyland Park will receive a brand-new waterfront, just outside the location of the new Star Wars-themed land. The new riverbank will also feature an elevated trestle over which the iconic Disneyland Resort Railroad will travel. (Disney Parks)

When the Rivers of America return to Disneyland Park shortened in 2017, they will feature an incredible nod to the park’s past. A new elevated train trestle will take guests aboard the Disneyland Railroad over the water as beautiful waterfalls run off the nearby rockwork and mountains of the new north shores. In many ways, this will be a nod to the now lost vistas of the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland attraction:

The new, shortened Rivers of America project is part of the expansion of the park, namely the 14-acre addition of a Star Wars-themed land.

The Rivers of America is now closed at Disneyland Park and will return in 2017.

It will be interesting to see where they will store the Fantasmic! boats with this new water front.

there will be a cave near the indian village and under the waterfalls. supposedly a new structure will be built so that they can store and do maintenance to the Fantasmic boats. It will be better than how they are store now exposed to the environment
