    Hello all, Does anyone know when the Disney's The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour will be back open at Magic Kingdom? The website says closed for refurbishment.

    Hey, Kristian! Thank you for coming back to planDisney! 

    I adore your question because I also share Walt Disney's passion for steam locomotives. I think they're fascinating, and they symbolize how we can move forward with promising, steady scientific discoveries. Aren't they beautiful?

    The Walt Disney World Railroad is still under refurbishment at Magic Kingdom Park, and we don't know when its whistle will be back to bring joy to the Guests. We also haven't heard about the insightful Disney's The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour. The good news is that the Disney Parks Blog is always announcing good information about Disney Parks, so I bet that they will be the first to celebrate its return! Just keep an eye out there, and we'll soon be all aboard this hype train again! 

    Until then, I'd like to share a little secret: One of the original cars from Walt Disney's original backyard train is at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. It's a showpiece at The Carolwood Pacific Railway Room, in the Disney Vacation Club building at this hotel. Make sure to visit this precious hidden gem in your next visit. I promise you won't regret it!

    But beware: This Disney Resort hotel is SO beautiful that you may leave it with a few Disney Vacation Club points under your belt. And if you do, don't worry. I got mine, and I love them! 

    Thanks for stopping by with your question, Kristian! If you have more questions about your December trip, please don't hesitate to come back. You can think of us as Mickey's Helpful Elves

    May the magic be with you,
