July 31, 1955 – The Casey Jr. Circus Train Attraction Opens in Disneyland

Casey Junior

“All aboard for a ‘mini’ tour of the fairytale homes and villages made famous in classic Disney animated movies.”

On July 31, 1955, the Fantasyland attraction Casey Jr. Circus Train opened in Disneyland. Based on the train from the animated feature film Dumbo, the attraction takes guests around the Storybook Land area, giving guests a splendid view of scenes from classic Disney animated features. The attraction, while supposed to be available on opening day of Disneyland, was delayed for two weeks due to mechanical problems. Several of the train cars were also taken from the original merry-go-round as it was refashioned as King Arthur Carousel. A version of the attraction was added to Disneyland Paris, known as Le Petit Train du Cirque.
