Magic Kingdom Park
Embark on a relaxing 20-minute, 1.5-mile scenic tour onboard an authentic steam-powered train.
Listen to the clamor of the engine, the chug of the wheels and the call of the whistle as you travel aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad. Offering convenient stops at Main Street, U.S.A., Frontierland and Fantasyland, it's the perfect way to preview the magic at Magic Kingdom park and take in the picturesque scenery.
The Walt Disney World Railroad is also a handy way to get around quickly and easily. And because the trains are scheduled to arrive at each station every 4 to 10 minutes at most times throughout the day, you never have to worry about waiting a long time to ride one.
A Blast from the Past
There are 4 meticulously restored, working narrow-gauge trains you can ride, originally built between 1916 and 1928.
Each locomotive includes 4 sets of passenger cars.
A noted train enthusiast, Walt Disney built his very first railroad in his backyard. The Carolwood Pacific Railroad, a 1/8-scale train, debuted in 1950 and featured a custom-built, steam powered locomotive that encircled his property.
Delighted with his miniature backyard railroad, Walt decided to share his love of trains with the whole world. The result was the Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad, a favorite of Guests since the park opened in 1955.
Today, railroads exist at every Disney park around the globe.
