Description And Comments

This transportation ride blends an eclectic variety of sights and experiences with an energy-saving way of getting around the park. In addition to providing a glimpse of all the lands except Adventureland and Galaxy’s Edge, the train passes through the Grand Canyon Diorama (between Tomorrowland and Main Street), a three-dimensional replica of the canyon, complete with wildlife, as it appears from the southern rim. Another sight on the train circuit is Primeval World, a depiction of a prehistoric peat bog and rain forest populated by Audio Animatronic (robotic) dinosaurs. Opened in 1966 Primeval World uses animatronics recycled from the Disney-designed Ford’s Magic Skyway pavilion for the 1964 World’s Fair, and it was a precursor to a similar presentation at EPCOT’s former Universe of Energy.

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’ve seen the featured attractions, or use it when you need transportation. It can also be a 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 will either list 5 minutes (three trains operating), 10 minutes (two trains), or 20 minutes (only one train). If you have small children who are hell-bent on seeing 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 (note that Toontown opens 1 hour later than the rest of 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.
