Scenic trip around the Magic Kingdom

The Carolwood Pacific Historical Society, the group dedicated to the preservation of Walt Disney’s locomotive legacy, has only one requirement for its members, that they ride aboard a steam train when in a Disney Park. It isn’t asking a whole lot, but it does give back to the passengers exponentially. Membership or not, it is an activity I recommend for each and every guest.

In the Magic Kingdom there are two excellent ways to unwind and relax for a few moments, a trip aboard the WEDway Peoplemover, or several trips depending on your exhaustion level, or a the complete circuit of the Walt Disney World Railroad. My personal preference is to hop aboard in Frontierland, mainly because I love the station there, but today we’re going to look at the sights of a full circuit by booking passage to and from Main Street U.S.A. Along the way you’ll see desolate outposts, dusty towns, native inhabitants, the backside of tomorrow and even honest to goodness wildlife mingling with the automated wildlife. If you are really vigilant, you’ll even be able to catch a glimpse of the Fantasyland Expansion through the rows growth and pines. Enjoy the tour!
