Description And Comments

Takes off in the Storybook Circus part of Fantasyland and provides clockwise transportation to Main Street, U.S.A. and then on to Frontierland.

For a full description of the attraction, visit the Main Street Station page. You can also visit the Frontierland Station.

Touring Tips

Pleasant, feet-saving link to Main Street and Frontierland . . . but so crowded in the afternoon during times of peak attendance that you’ll almost certainly find it faster to walk anywhere in the park.

We suggest saving the train until after you’ve seen the featured attractions, or use it when you need transportation. On busy days, lines form at the Frontierland Station but rarely at the Main Street Station. Wheelchair access is available at the Frontierland and Fantasyland Stations.

Only folded strollers are permitted on the train, so you can’t board with your rented Disney stroller. You can, however, obtain a replacement at your destination (keep your stroller name card and rental receipt with you).

A dad from Green Pond, New Jersey, asserts that not all stations are equal:

Tell your readers that if they ride the railroad they should go to the Main Street Station. We tried to get on in New Orleans Square, and it was a zoo—there were people shoving past other people and rolling over other people with strollers and wheelchairs. The Main Street Station is much more organized, efficient, and relaxing because of the extra cast members working there.

Finally, note that the railroad shuts down immediately before and during parades; check your park guide map or Times Guide for parade times. Needless to say, this is not the time to get in line.
