Walt Disney World Railroad
Circle the Magic Kingdom on a popular steam train, with stops at Main Street, U.S.A., Frontierland, and Fantasyland. You’ll catch glimpses of all but Liberty Square along the 1.5-mile journey. Ride the full route for fun, or disembark at any stop to travel through the park. Personal strollers must be folded before entering station. Replacement rental strollers may be available at other stops (hold on to your name tag!), but are not guaranteed. Attraction is closed during fireworks. Wheelchair and ECV friendly. Alex’s ToddlerTip: “Choo choo!” Allie’s KidTip: “Kids like this train! It doesn’t go too fast.” Note: This attraction will temporarily close in December 2018 while the new TRON attraction is under construction; during this period the train will sit at the Main Street station so you can get up close and personal for photo ops!Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

The train is so relaxing.

Good way to take a break. To add meaning...look up the names of the trains and what the story is behind them.

Whistle is loud. It's a great ride when it is cool and you need to put up your feet. Easy to ride this around the park and let a little one sleep, because you don't need to get off/on.

I love taking the train, whether it's to another land or riding all the way around, one of the best ways to just chill for a bit.

It's wonderful to ride this icon. Definitely love to ride this each time we go.

I love hearing the train horn blowing as you walk through the park. A great way to relax and get off your feet but not the most efficient way to get around the park.

We ride this every visit, usually more than once! I love to sit and look at my agenda when I board, enjoy the scenery and slight breeze during a warm day. Good time to sip on some water and enjoy a quick snack! Great way to get to other parts of the park during crowded times, also. We usually stay on it twice in a row, and enjoy it like a ride :)

Love this classic ride. Write it every time. I'm dying to go behind the steam on that tour.

The magic of WDW taken in through a train ride encircling the whole park. A must do attraction every trip.
chelynnah gave this a rating of 10 on 06/17/2016 at 1:18:38 pm EDT
Good for getting off your feet for a bit. If you have little ones that are a bit cranky, they love the thought of a train ride but they usually fall asleep on the ride. You can keep riding around until they are refreshed (or you!).

Reminds me the most about Walt and his love of trains. This is a must do for that reason alone.

Relaxing ride. We love to take a little afternoon break and just ride it all the way around the park.

This is a great alternative to navigating through the crowds or to ride as a midday break.

A nice and relaxing way to get around the park. Can see the park in a whole new way from the train. Definitely worth doing!

Great way to get to other areas of the park, sit down a bit, and get some awesome views of the Magic Kingdom! Very underrated and overlooked ride!

It's a great way to get from one part of the MK to the other-it saves some walking, and it's just plain fun!

We like this ride when we are in need of a break or need to get from front gate to Splash Mountain or 7 Dwarfs and it's crowded.

Another Disney classic. Magic Kingdom can be overwhelming for those trying to do everything. I'm glad that many trips have shown us how nice it is to simply slow down and enjoy things that aren't necessarily at the top of everyone's list. The WDW Rairoad is definitely one of those "stop and smell the roses" attractions.
