Main Street Fire Engine Celebrates 55 Years at Disneyland Park

posted on August 16th, 2013 by Valarie Sukovaty, Disneyland Public Relations


You see it on Main Street, U.S.A., every day at Disneyland park – the Fire Engine. It was added to the fleet of Main Street Vehicles 55 years ago today, on August 16, 1958. A replica of a 1916 fire engine, it is a reminder of simpler times at the turn of the century. It’s also a reminder of Walt Disney and how much he loved to drive it around Disneyland in the mornings before the park opened. So take a trip with us down the memory lane we call Main Street, U.S.A., today on the 55th anniversary of the Main Street Fire Engine. You’ll be glad you did.

I love the Disneyland Fire Truck!! It is a must-ride each visit to the park. The drivers all share great stories about Walt, and. It is fun to ring the bell. If you’re lucky, you will get a Disneyland Jr Firefighter sticker at the end of your trip. Congratulations on 55 years!!

Thanks to Steve for driving us up and down Main St. for 40 years! One of the long time CM “icons” in my opinion. I know its a good day to see him smiling while cruising down Main St. in that red machine!
