The Big Thunder Trail at Disneyland is Back Open!

After a year+ closure, Disneyland’s Big Thunder Trail reopened this morning.  The path, which connects Fantasyland and Frontierland was closed in January 2016 as part of the Star Wars Land construction project. The trail is not directly part of Star Wars Land, but will offer entrances to the new park area when it opens in 2019, which is why it had to close for  some time.

Our friends over at InsidetheMagic have some great images of the reopened Big Thunder Trail from earlier today. Definitely worth a look.

I am founder and editor of and My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
