Description And Comments

A transportation ride that blends an eclectic variety of sights and experiences with an energy-saving way of getting around the park. This leg of the attraction, taking you to New Orleans Square, doesn't present too many viewing glimpses of the park.

Touring Tips

Save the train ride until after you have seen the featured attractions, or use it when you need transportation. It can also be a helpful way to relax during the peak times of the day when the crowds are swelling.

You can get a good estimate of how long you'll wait for the next train by using the posted wait time sign outside each station. It'll either list 5 minutes (three trains operating), 10 minutes (two trains), or 20 minutes (only one train). Just be warned that you might not make it on the next train, depending on how many folks depart at your stop and how many fellow guests are waiting to board.

If you have small children who are hell-bent to see Mickey first thing in the morning, you might consider taking the train to Mickey's Toontown (a half circuit) and visiting Mickey in his dressing room as soon as you enter the park. Many families find that this tactic puts the kids in a more receptive frame of mind for the other attractions. On busy days, lines form at the New Orleans Square and Mickey's Toontown/Fantasyland stations but rarely at the Main Street or Tomorrowland stations.
