    Hi! Do you know when they`re gonna take off the scrim from the Railroad’s main st station? I'm visiting the parks in April. Thanks, your page is amazing 🙂

    Welcome to planDisney, Victoria!

    Thank you for that nice compliment – we think YOU are amazing for stopping by with your question.

    The Walt Disney World Railroad is beloved by so many Disney fans; I have wonderful memories of watching the train pull into the station at the start of an unforgettable day at Magic Kingdom Park, and of circling the park with my Mouseketeers, taking in all the sights and sounds. It’s such a classic part of the experience, and we’re all missing it while it remains under refurbishment.

    At this time, we don’t know when the scrim will be removed from the Main Street, U.S.A. Walt Disney World Railroad station, or when Guests will hear “all aboard!” and be able to ride the rails again. My advice is to be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog, as they always have the latest news and updates. They recently shared a fantastic story about the Liberty Belle Riverboat returning to the Rivers of America after her lengthy refurbishment; it was so magical to see the footage of this beautiful boat sailing through Seven Seas Lagoon!

    The Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members do a great job with the scrims; I once visited when several buildings on Main Street, U.S.A. were under refurbishment, and we honestly barely noticed. I'm also happy to share that there is a beautiful photo location outside the Fantasyland Station, where you can snap a photo with the train. You’ll also still be able to stop at PhotoPass photographers to get great shots of your party in front of Cinderella Castle and all your favorite landmarks,

    For the members of your group dreaming of being railroad engineers, don’t miss Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – your runaway train zooms through lots of funny and charming moments featuring Mickey and his pals. 

    April is a fantastic time for a visit, Victoria! You won’t want to miss the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, when EPCOT is in full bloom and bursting with gorgeous topiaries, delicious food and drink, and fun activities. It’s my very favorite festival – don’t miss the frozen Dessert Violet Lemonade!

    You have so much to look forward to on your upcoming visit, and we’re here to help you plan and dream. Please come back and see us if you have any more questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
