Disneyland Horses Take Practice Runs in Preparation for Park Opening

It is slowly but surely looking better and better each day for Disneyland’s grand reopening. Disney just announced they plan to reopen on April 30! It is also being reported that the familiar clip-clop sound of Disney horses has returned!


As reported by OCRegister: “The familiar clip-clop sound of Disneyland’s beloved draft horses are once again echoing off the facades of the Victorian-style buildings lining Main Street U.S.A. as the Anaheim theme park prepares for an April reopening following a year-long coronavirus closure. The Disneyland draft horses that are expected to ferry Disney characters along the entry promenade have been taking practice runs pulling the park’s vintage horse-drawn trolleys.”

“Disneyland horses are considered cast members, Disney-speak for employees. Each of the horses has its own oversize cast member name tag in the tack room of Disneyland’s Circle D Ranch in Norco. The Home of the Happiest Horses on Earth offers spacious quarters for the working animals as well as storage space for stage coaches and carriages used in the theme park.”

While California theme parks, including Disneyland, are allowed to reopen according to Gov. Newsom as early as April 1, Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, noted that recalling and retraining Cast Members takes time – hence the April 30 reopening date. We simply CAN’T WAIT!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
