The Walt Disney World Railroad stops on Main Street and in Frontierland and Storybook Circus.

1. Haunted Mansion Queue
One of the most amazing places in the Magic Kingdom is the Haunted Mansion’s queue which is both interactive and rich in detail. Guests first get a glimpse of the impressive Gracey Manor before walking along a path with sweeping views of the Rivers of America. Once in the graveyard proper, guests are introduced to various former residents at the mansion and can observe their unique tombstones. Along the way there are also interactive elements such as a creepy organ and a poet beyond the grave who needs help completing some lines. With so much to do and see on the line, guests might even forget that they haven’t entered into the actual attraction yet! The queue of the Haunted Mansion is one of the most amazing places in the Magic Kingdom and should definitely be explored on every Disney vacation!
