Walt Disney World Railroad is Now Open at the Magic Kingdom!

We have some exciting news to share just in time for Christmas! After being closed since 2018 the Walt Disney World Railroad is now open in the Magic Kingdom!

Yesterday Disney announced that Walt Disney World Railroad would return with All-New Holiday Voiceovers and low and behold today the Railroad is now open to guests!

While no official announcement was made we happened to notice guests on the Walt Disney World Railroad around 1030am so we stopped by the Fantasyland Station to investigate. We thought it was just Cast Members riding the rails again for testing.

However, to our surprise, the Cast Members at the station notified us that the Trains were running once again! The Disney World Website now shows the Railroad open and Hours of Operation have been updated.

Since we boarded at the Fantasyland Station we were able to go through the Tron Lightcycle Tunnel and get a sneak peek inside the attraction!

Are you excited the Walt Disney World Railroad is Now Open in the Magic Kingdom? Are you racing over now to ride the rails once again after such a long absence?
