June 26, 1956 – The Attraction Rainbow Mountain Stage Coaches Opens in Disneyland
On June 26, 1956, the Rainbow Mountain Stage Coaches attraction opened in Disneyland’s Frontierland. Guests could board a stagecoach and travel around Frontierland, particularly through the Living Desert and other updates to the area. This attraction would share a road with the Conestoga Wagons, another attraction where guests are taken en masse down the Frontierland trails. Unfortunately, the attraction had many issues, including the horses often getting spooked by the Disneyland Railroad as it passed by, and the attraction was closed on September 13, 1959.
