Walt Disney loved various modes of transportation. That is why there is a railroad and a riverboat at the Magic Kingdom. Both are scheduled for refurbishments in the coming months. The Walt Disney World Railroad will be closed January 9 – February 16, re-opening on February 17. The Liberty Square Riverboat will be closed January 3 – January 12, re-opening on January 13. While these are not major attractions as the park, they do hold a piece of nostalgia and we will all look forward to their return to operation.
