Disneyland workers opened the valves and started filling the northern portion of the Rivers of America in Frontierland with water Friday.
That portion of the waterway was dammed off and drained early in 2016 as part of the “Star Wars” land project. The route for the river was also changed to allow more room for the new land, which opens in 2019.
Disneyland officials have not said when the new waterway, along with the Disneyland Railroad, will open, but have indicated it would be sometime later this year.
Once the waterway and Tom Sawyer Island are open to visitors, the park is expected to bring back a new version of its nighttime show that plays on the water way, “Fantasmic!”
The Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia are also expected to ply the waterway along its new route during the day.
