The New Disney California Adventure > Buena Vista Street > Red Car Trolley
Plying the streets of Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land, the Red Car Trolley takes guests on a leisurely trip through time into the Los Angeles that Walt Disney knew in the early 1920s and into his Hollywood of the 1930s.
Board one of two Red Car Trolleys for a leisurely tour of Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land.
Attraction storyline: Inspired by, and lovingly modeled on the historic Pacific Electric Railway system which operated in Southern California from 1901 through 1961, the Red Car Trolley runs through Buena Vista Street and into Hollywood Land, making multiple stops until it arrives at the Hollywood Tower Hotel. The red cars are modeled on two Pacific Electric Railway designs, representing different eras of the systems history. The attraction evokes the original Red Car line with large windows all the way around the cars, a distinctive single headlight in the center of the front panel, and even overhead catenary electrical lines.Photos:
