Located close to Le Pays des Contes de Fées at the rear of Fantasyland, the Casey Jr. Circus Train (as it is known in English) is a junior roller coaster that races past many of the same scenes seen from the boat ride. The entrance for both attractions can be easy to miss, situated as they are beyond the Disneyland Railroad tracks.
Unusually for a roller coaster, Casey Jr., Le Petit Train du Cirque features a variety of different themed carriages that are designed to resemble circus vehicles such as animal cages. The trains do not traverse the circuit through gravity as on a traditional coaster, but are instead powered.
While the ride offers much less chance to take in the sights of Storybook Land than the nearby canal boats, it does provide views of some elements that are not visible from water-level. The journey is accompanied by a lively theme tune, “Casey Junior”.
This ride does not always run in the low season and so you need to check on entry to the park.
