Train and Wagon Rides

What's the best scene at Santa's Magical Kingdom?  It's the look of awe and wonder on children's faces as they board Santa's very own train for their magical journey through millions of shimmering lights! Old Fashioned Holiday Wagon Rides are also available and offer guests an open air adventure with a 360 degree unobstructed view of all the incredible sights and sounds of the Kingdom. Available as group or private wagon rides, both offer fun and memorable ways to celebrate the season with friends and family!

When you book a wagon or train ride for 2 or more persons, YOUR VEHICLE ADMISSION FEE TO THE KINGDOM IS WAIVED!  Plus, your reservation is taken in-house, by our own staff of elves so there is no additional booking/service fee for train or wagon rides at Santa's Magical Kingdom.

WHERE TO GO FOR YOUR RIDE:

Please drive into the Kingdom as though you’re driving through the show in your vehicle. When you pass through the 1st tunnel of lights and reach the Gingerbread House on the right, inform the team member there that you have reservations for a train or wagon ride and they’ll direct you to the parking lot.

Once parked, please go to the wagon desk on veranda in front of Kringle’s General Store to check in for your ride. On slower nights, you may also check-in at the front desk at Kringle’s Store.

PLEASE NOTE: 

1) 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.

2) Several years ago we expanded the show by adding a new ½ mile section filled with dozens of new scenes and a 3rd tunnel of lights. Since the rides are a cold weather experience often booked by families with young children, we decided not to extend the length of time for an outdoor ride by driving through the new section.

So. . . we created a BONUS for guests who book the rides! When your ride is over, you will be allowed to drive back through the Kingdom before you leave so you can experience all the wonder and magic of the new section as well as drop off letters to Santa in his mailbox at the North Pole if the kiddos want to do that.


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.
