The Walt Disney World Railroad

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance One of Walt's hobbies was model railways. This hobby was extended into the Magic Kingdom with the creation of a railroad around the park's perimiter.

The Walt Disney World Railroad is one of the best ways to get an idea of the scale of The Magic Kingdom, and to view behind the scenes of some of the attractions.

It takes guests on a leisurely tour of the outskirts of the Magic Kingdom theme park on a circular track that runs for around a mile and a half, stopping at the Main Street Station, Frontierland, and Mickey's Toontown Fair.

A complete circuit of the theme park on the railroad will take approximately 21 minutes, and with up to four trains running, there should be a train every 4 to 7 minutes.

The Walt Disney World Railroad has four trains:

  • The Lilly Belle, a 1928 locomotive which is named after Walt's wife Lillian shares the name of an eigth scale model locomotive that Walt had built for fun at his home much earlier.
  • The Roy O. Disney
  • The Walter E. Disney
  • The Roger E. Broggie which is named after one of the early Disney Imagineers, who shared Walt's passion for old trains.

Each of the four trains was originally built in America around the turn of the 20th century, and were later shipped to Mexico to haul passengers and freight trains in Yucatan. They were located by Disney scouts in 1969, where they were bought from the Yucatan United Railways and shipped to Florida for complete refurbishment and use on The Walt Disney World Railroad.

Note that there are some guest lockers located underneath the Train Station, which guests can use to securely leave personal items, or souvenirs to save carrying them around the park.
