Come Along for the Ride!

Embark on a relaxing 18-minute, 1.2-mile scenic tour onboard an authentic steam-powered train.

Listen to the clamor of the engine, the chug of the wheels and the call of the whistle as you travel aboard the Disneyland Railroad! Offering convenient stops at New Orleans Square, Tomorrowland, Mickey’s Toontown and Main Street, U.S.A., it's the perfect way to preview the magic at Disneyland Park and take in the picturesque scenery.

The Disneyland Railroad is also a handy way to get around quickly and easily. And because the trains are scheduled to arrive every 5 to 10 minutes at most times throughout the day, you’ll have just enough time to take in all the sights at your station before you board!

Blast from the Past
There are 5 meticulously restored, working narrow-gauge trains you can ride. Each includes 4 sets of passenger cars and has been named after a careful selection of locomotive legends. The lone exception is the Ward Kimball, which was named after the Disney Animator who fostered Walt Disney’s passion for the railway.

A Longstanding Disney Tradition

A noted train enthusiast, Walt Disney built his very first railroad in his backyard. 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.

Today, railroads exist at every Disney park around the globe.
