The Casey Jr. Circus Train is an attraction found at Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. Based on the train of the same name from the 1941 film Dumbo, it gives passengers a tour of many miniature versions of classic Disney animated film scenes. This tour is similar to the one given on the slower paced Storybook Land Canal Boats, but does not incorporate narration. It was opened two weeks later than Disneyland due to testing.
The Disneyland Paris version is designed as a roller coaster for small children through Storybook Land, giving riders good views of the castle and other scenes that are not as visible from the Storybook Land Canal Boats.
The Casey Jr. Circus Train was originally conceived as the park's first roller coaster before plans were scaled back.
For the first year of operation at Disneyland, the Casey Jr. Circus Train was simply a train ride with very little to look at. When the miniature scenes were added to Canal Boats of the World (turning it into Storybook Land Canal Boats) in September 1956, riders were finally given something to look at. Since then, the attraction has remained largely unchanged.
