Disney World Railroad Tracks are now visible at Tron Lightcycle Run. It is with great joy that we bring this good news to you today. The Walt Disney World Railroad Tracks are 50 feet from being connected. The tracks are now visible running through the Tron Lightcycle Run new Train Tunnel, and fresh tracks have been laid on the backside of Tomorrowland Power and Light Co.
With only 50 feet to go, can we start speculating as to a return time for the Train to return? We know Disney has been testing the Steam Engines recently and going back and forth from Adventureland to Fantasyland Station. We also know that Disney has hired and has been training new Engineers.
We also know that D23 is right around the corner. So could this mean an announcement will be made shortly? Could we be close to enjoying riding down the tracks and living our best Disney life again dreaming about being the conductor of the Walt Disney World Railroad? Let the Excitement begin!
Listen to the clamor of the engine, the chug of the wheels and the call of the whistle as you travel aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad.
Take your seat on 1 of 4 meticulously restored, vintage narrow-gauge steam trains—originally built between 1916 and 1928—and enjoy a relaxing 20-minute, 1.5-mile scenic round-trip tour.
It’s a convenient—and nostalgic—way to get around Magic Kingdom park!

Walt’s Lifelong Passion
Walt Disney built his very first railroad in his backyard as a noted train enthusiast. The Carolwood Pacific Railroad, a 1/8-scale train, debuted in 1950 and featured a custom-built, steam powered locomotive that encircled his property.
Delighted with his miniature backyard railroad, Walt decided to share his love of trains with the whole world. The result was the Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad, a favorite of Guests since the park opened in 1955.
