Where To Go For Your Rides

On the busiest nights of our season, we ask all wagon riders to park at the Shell Gas Station nearby to avoid waiting in long vehicle admission lines.  At Shell, you will board a school bus which will bypass most of the line and will bring you into the Kingdom for your ride.  When you make your reservations, a staff member will give you more detailed instructions if you book a ride on one of the bus shuttle nights.

For all other nights (NON-BUS), you will drive into the Kingdom as if you were driving through in your vehicle.  When you get to the top of the hill by the gingerbread house, inform the staff member there that you have reservations for the train or wagon, and they will direct you to parking.  Once parked, head to the General Store desk to check in and pick up your wagon pass so you may begin boarding for your ride.    You'll want to leave plenty of time after your ride to visit with Santa and browse through Kringle's unique selection of gifts, toys, apparel, and holiday decor. Delicious hot chocolate, fresh hot coffee, pizza, soft baked pretzels and other snacks are available for purchase in our Snack Shack. 

PLEASE NOTE: You must be on time for your ride. In consideration of all our guests, the rides must stay on schedule. Therefore, we cannot hold rides to wait for late passengers and there is no guarantee that there will be availability for your group on a later ride that evening.

Cancellation Policy

Once tickets are purchased, no cancellations or refunds will be allowed unless Santa's Magical Kingdom is forced to cancel rides due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Call one of Santa's elves at  636-938-5925 to book your wagon or train ride.
