The Red Car Trolley is an attraction at the Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, which opened on June 15, 2012. The attraction features replicas of the Pacific Electric Railway (PE) "Red Cars" that once traversed much of Southern California, and provides transportation between Buena Vista Street and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Hollywoodland.


The Red Car Trolley line has a total of four stops throughout Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land.


The attraction features two stylized replicas of Pacific Electric rolling stock that were a familiar sight throughout Southern California from the 1900s to the 1960s.


Red Car #623 is painted a solid dark red and features a simpler paint scheme than its counterpart, in reference to how PE cars appeared when delivered from the factory circa 1915. Its windows are painted in a green trim. Its number, 623, is a reference to the 600- and 700-series "Hollywood" cars built by the St. Louis Car Company for PE in the 1920s, as well as to the year 1923, when Walt Disney arrived in Los Angeles and started the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio with his brother, Roy.

Red Car #717 is painted a bright red and features orange "butterfly wing" stripes on its sides, in reference to the paint schemes adopted by PE in the late 1930s, and how PE cars are typically seen in popular culture and films, such as in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Its window trim is painted in the same red as the body, and its doors are painted orange. Its number 717, is a reference to the 600- and 700-series "Hollywood" cars built by the St. Louis Car Company for PE in the 1920s, as well as to the opening date of Disneyland, which opened on July 17, 1955 (7-17-1955 in US date and time format).
