Walt Disney World Railroad to Close for Tron Construction

Walt Disney World Railroad to Close for Tron Construction

The legendary train whistle will be silent if you are visiting the Magic Kingdom Park beginning December 3rd.  The Walt Disney World Railroad will be closed at all stations beginning on December 3rd and through January 5th.  This closure is happening so that construction can proceed on the new Tron attraction – to be located in Tomorrowland.  You’ll notice while pulling up the daily calendar for Magic Kingdom Park that the railroad will be listed as closed for those dates.

We all love the 20-minute, 1.5-mile scenic tour onboard one of the majestic and fully restored narrow-gauge trains.  Do you know all of their names?

  • Walter E. Disney – named after Walt Disney
  • Lilly Belle  – named after Walt’s wife, Lillian
  • Roy O. Disney, named after Walt’s brother
  • Roger E. Broggie, named after an original Imagineer who led the railroad project at Walt Disney World.

Could you name all 4?  Which one is your favorite?  All were originally built between 1916 and 1928.  Don’t worry this is only a temporary and short closure.  They will be back full steam ahead after January 5th.
