Disney has offered no timeline for its new "Star Wars" land, but Thursday park fans learned attractions closed temporarily for its construction will reopen in 2017.

Park officials, on their Disney Parks blog, announced the attractions on the Rivers of America that went offline earlier this year as crews prepared for the construction of the 14-acre "Star Wars" land, will reopen next summer - an exact date was not given.

The Disneyland Railroad will chug around the park on a new route, traveling elevated railroad tracks over the water with scenic views of waterfronts and waterfalls on the north bank of the artifical river.

The nightly "Fantasmic!" light and water fireworks show will also be back. Visitors will be able to explore Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island, exercise their arms on Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes and board the Mark Twain Riverboat or the Sailing Ship Columbia as they journey along the Rivers of America.

A Disneyland spokesman said the attractions will operate as they did before the closures.

The park has placed a steam locomotive and some passenger cars on display at the Main Street and New Orleans Square stations for visitors to get an up-close look during the closures. The Sailing Ship Columbia has been docked at Frontierland for guests to explore.
