Embark on a relaxing 18-minute scenic journey around Disneyland, with stops at Main Street, U.S.A., New Orleans Square, Mickey’s Toontown, and Tomorrowland.
As you make your way through these beautiful landscapes, you will also see some of Disneyland park’s famous attractions as you’ll find yourself inside and passing rides such as Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
The Disneyland train isn’t just one train, but five. Each is a meticulously restored, working narrow-gauge train with four sets of passenger cars. The trains are named for locomotive legends C.K. Holliday, E.P. Ripley, Ernest Marsh, and Fred Gurley. The fifth train is named for Ward Kimball, the Disney animator who fostered Walt Disney’s passion for the railway.
- Walt Disney developed a love of trains at an early age. When he was a young adult, he built a half-mile scale model railway in his backyard that he called the “Carolwood Pacific Railroad.” The Disneyland Railroad was one of the first attractions he planned for his new park.
