Getting Around, 1955 Original Ride
Embark on a relaxing 18-minute, 1.2-mile scenic tour on board 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! It's the perfect way to preview the magic at Disneyland Park and take in the picturesque scenery, with 4 convenient stops:
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 around each station!
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, named after the Disney Animator who fostered Walt Disney’s passion for the railway.
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 rest of the 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.
Under certain wind conditions, the Disneyland Railroad closes intermittently to accommodate fireworks performances.
