With many of the changes coming to the area, the Pony Farm and Tri-Circle-D Ranch will also be getting some changes. In this case, it will be in the form of a new barn! Imagineers have done their magic and redesigned the Tri-Circle-D Ranch. With this new design, there will be a new state-of-the-art stable that will be accompanied by outdoor spaces and facilities for “The Happiest Horses on Earth!” This new ranch will offer guests a look into various exhibits and check out classic Disney equestrian artifacts. Some of these artifacts date back to the 1950s! This new facility will maintain the history and spirit of the original Tri-Circle-D Ranch while offering a modern home for the horses.

The transition for the facility is starting very soon! On August 19, 2019, the Draft Horse Barn and Pony Farm will be inaccessible for guests to visit while the new facility is being built. The new barn should open sometime in the spring of 2020! Guests will still be able to experience Pony rides at the Trail Blaze Corral. The resorts rides and carriage rides will also continue to be offered as the new barn is built as well.
