May the Force be with you.
“Remember… Dreams Come True” Fireworks: Lighting up the sky at Disneyland once again is a fan favorite fireworks show. “Remember… Dreams Come True” fireworks spectacular takes you on a journey hosted by the one and only Julie Andrews.

Fantasmic!: The classic nighttime spectacular is making its way back to Rivers of America this summer! Take a journey with Mickey Mouse himself as he takes on evil with the power of imagination. Expect to see the return of Fantasmic! sometime during summer 2017.
Disneyland Railroad: Catch a ride on the classic train throughout Disneyland beginning summer 2017. Disneyland Railroad will be back with a slightly new track around Frontierland. Other than that, it will be the exact same attraction we all know and love.
Among these awesome summer 2017 returns, you can also count on Tom Sawyer Island, Mark Twain River Boat, Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes. This will complete the re-opening of all the closures in Frontierland and Rivers of America that temporarily closed to make way for Star Wars Land.
All-New Additions –
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!: Get ready for the main attraction this year at Disneyland. Opening sometime this summer in Disney California Adventure is Guardians of the Galaxy –Mission: BREAKOUT!. Taking the place of Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, this all new attraction will have the same free fall experience, but with an all new story and overlay. It is going to be a wild ride.
New FASTPASS Attractions: It has finally happened! Toy Story Midway Mania and Matterhorn Bobsleds are both getting Fastpasses. There is no date on when these will be released, but they will both be amazing additions to the parks. These both are going to be hugely popular, so you’ll want to grab them first thing during your trip.
Disneyland Maxpass: There are not a lot of details yet, but Disneyland is going implement a new system with two awesome new features. With the Disneyland Maxpass, for an additional fee, you can use the Disneyland Park App to get your FASTPASS ticket on your phone instead of at the ride kiosk and get unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass images. The digital FASTPASS will work exactly as a regular FASTPASS does, but you will have it on your phone. Regular FASTPASS tickets will remain free and available for anyone who doesn’t want to pay for a MaxPass. There is still more to learn, but the possibilities are thrilling!
Among all the excitement of returning classics and all new experiences, you can enjoy the magic that you can only find at Disneyland every single day.
