INTRODUCTION

Casey Jr., the circus train from the Disney animated feature Dumbo, takes guests on a tour around Storybook Land.


ATTRACTION

Casey Jr. Circus Train is located in the back of Fantasyland next to Dumbo. An unshaded queue switchbacks up to the boarding area, where guests can select which of the cars on the miniature circus train they wish to sit in. In addition to two open-air cars there are two "wild animal" cages with bars on them.

The train takes a short, approximately three-minute ride around the perimeter of Storybook Land. Storybook Land contains miniature scenes from many favorite Disney animated movies, such as the castle from Cinderella, the Seven Dwarfs cottage, and the palace of Agrabah. Notice the miniature plants, also -- some very fine examples of the Japanese art of Bonsai.


TOURING TIPS

Casey Jr. EngineAs with most Fantasyland attractions, the lines for Casey Jr. are shortest early in the day. The train doesn't hold very many guests, so the line moves slowly.

The scenes in Storybook Land, and all of the miniature gardens, are very nicely detailed -- for a closer and better look, consider taking a ride on the Storybook Land Canal Boats.

There is no height requirement.

Wheelchair and ECV users proceed up the ramp that serves as the attraction's exit and transfer onto the train.

The closest restrooms are located next to the Village Haus Restaurant, along the exit to Frontierland.


KIDS AND CHARACTERS

This ride is appropriate for guests of all ages -- kids may especially enjoy riding in the cages for the "Wild Animals" or "Monkeys".

There are no characters in this part of Fantasyland. Several of the Disney princesses make appearances at "Princess Storytelling" sessions at the "Once Upon a Time" shop located next to the Castle.


DINING

INTERESTING FACTS

Casey Jr. is an original Disneyland attraction and opened in July 1955.

Casey Jr. says "I think I can, I think I can!" as he climbs the hills.

The open air "sleigh" type cars actually came from the King Arthur Carrousel -- they were removed to make room for more horses, and converted to train cars for the Casey Jr. Circus Train.
