Show Spotlight: Red Car Trolley News Boys

“No matter how tough things get, you just gotta believe in yourself – push forward and seize the day!”

What is Red Car Trolley News Boys?

Inspired by Disney’s cult movie favorite (and recent Broadway hit), Newsies, the Red Car Trolley News Boys is an approximately 15-minute long performance filled with period songs along with some music familiar to Newsies fans too!

This high energy show features half a dozen talented folks singing some great music and doing some fun choreography along with a special guest appearance that happens while the News Boys try to “sell some papers” and tell you about the news of the day.

They’re another of the wonderful placemaking pieces of atmosphere on Buena Vista Street that has made this area such a success.

Who are the performers?

The News Boys and Mickey Mouse!

The News Boys and Mickey Mouse!

The Red Car Trolley News Boys are made up of five guys and their gal, Sal, along with special guest, Mickey Mouse, fresh off the trolley to find his way in California. There’s also a visit from Molly the Messenger, one of the Citizens of Buena Vista Street.

When and where can I find them?

The Red Car Trolley News Boys stop to perform several times a day in front of the Carthay Circle Restaurant on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure. Sometimes they will also just ride the trolley through Buena Vista Street and down through Hollywood Land while waving to the crowds and “singing a song”. Check your daily Entertainment Times Guide for the schedule, which as always is subject to change.

Why spotlight them?

One of my most favorite shows in the Disneyland Resort – I’ve watched this one over and over and am always happy to stop and watch it again!

I really love the message of this show about never giving up hope and believing in yourself and your dreams. To me, this makes News Boys the “Disney-ist” of shows. This rousing, feel-good production is the one I go see if I’m down or needing to be inspired and it always does the trick!

Have you seen the Red Car Trolley News Boys? If not, what are you waiting for? Go and seize the day!
