    WDW Railroad Train

    WDW Train holds special memories for our family. Both kids at age one greatly anticipated riding the train at WDW. We would always back then take the first flight out of O'hare and hit WDW early afternoon that day.

    DS-he loved all trains. So excited he crashed by Frontierland. DD on her 2 trip, also 1 yr old, fell asleep at Mainstreet, on the train before it pulled out. The announcement about hands, feet, no eating and then "No sleeping on the train". DD flipped her eye lids open sat up straight with a shocked look on her face. Priceless!

    Now we ride the train when we want to quickly jump lands or when the feet are tired.

    Do you have fond memories of the WDW Railroad trains? Or do you walk under it, keep going and never look back?
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: WDW Railroad Train

    I love to ride the train also, especially in the Frontierland part. I saw on a video podcast the DL train, I was surprised to see how different the ride was from WDW (well part of it was different....very different). The video podcast I saw shows the whole ride, they have different clips on YouTube and this is one of them....YouTube - Disneyland - The Disneyland Railroad 1992
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I love the Railroad Trains I ride it all the time I visit the Magic Kingdom. I enjoy the Frontierland part most too. The different trains are so wonderful. My favorite one is the "Roger E Broggie. Bizarrely I did the most rides with that train The whole ride is great and so relaxing, but I wish they would put more nice sfuff in to the trees and bushes next to the train track.

    I hate to say it but every time i am in the park the train isn't running... But i do have fond memories of the train in Fort Wilderness. Waking up in the morning to the sounds of the steam whistle. Hard to believe you use to get around Fort Wilderness via bus, tram or train. I also remember the 1930s truck that use to drive around the loops with stuff for sale...a preferred site at that time was $9. ;-)

    I love the trains! Walt loved model railroading so much he built the Carolwood Pacific Railroad in the backyard of his home on Carolwood Dr. which led to thoughts of the park and having a railroad going around it. If you love the trains at WDW go on the Magic behind our steam trains tour. Well worth the price, lots of history and a great pin.

    I love the train. We always go for a complete lap in the afternoon, when the rest of the rides are busy. DH's favourite part of any WDW trip is watching the train come into the station in the morning, bringing Mickey to open the park.

    Re: WDW Railroad Train

    I love to ride the train as well. It's only recently that I've found how far away the train whistle can be heard. I've heard it while leaving Epcot recently and I've heard it from DD's neighborhood. It just did occur to me that the whistle I'm hearing could be from the train going out to Rafiki's Planet Watch in AK, but the first train I think of when I hear the whistle is the WDW Railroad Train.
