The Walt Disney World Railroad has Re-Opened at Magic Kingdom

The Walt Disney World Railroad closed in January for a lengthy refurbishment.  It was supposed to re-open in February, but the refurbishment tool longer than planned.  We are happy to report that the Walt Disney World Railroad is finally re-open at the Magic Kingdom and taking guests to the different train stations around the park.  This railroad is a staple of Walt Disney World and a huge part of the nostalgia for the park, so we definitely notice when it isn’t running.

Walt Disney was a huge fan of trains and had his own personal collection.  He had trains at his house, some of which are on display at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.  Walt wanted a train in his theme parks.  Even though he never got to see Magic Kingdom as a completed park, he was key in the inclusion of the railroad at Magic Kingdom.  We can’t imagine that the railroad would ever be removed from the park, and we are so glad about that!
