    We would like to ride the Walt Disney World Railroad at Magic Kingdom and get off at stops at each station. My daughter rides in a stroller. Will we be able to take the stroller on the train?

    Hi Stephanie!

    All aboard and welcome to planDisney!  I'm so happy you stopped by to see us with your question about the Walt Disney World Railroad.  I see you're chugging right along to your arrival date - it won't be long now!

    The Walt Disney World Railroad is a must-do in our family as my husband, a bit like Walt himself, loves trains. With stations located inside Main Street, U.S.A., Fronteirland, and Fantasyland, you can use the train as a way to get from one side of the park to the other or simply enjoy the opportunity to take a relaxing ride around Magic Kingdom Park.  When riding the rails, you should be fine to take your stroller as long as it folds so you can stow it with you during your journey.  If you are renting a stroller from the park, you will not be able to take it on the train as those strollers do not fold.  Instead, you would need to park the stroller near the train station.

    When you disembark the train at the Fantasyland station, I'd like to point out a few favorite attractions for little ones that are just steps away.  Taking to the skies is none other than everyone's favorite flying elephant, Dumbo!  Dumbo the Flying Elephant is a great ride for kids of all ages.  What some guests don't know is that inside the big top is a large, air-conditioned play area for children.  This non-traditional queue allows your kids to run off some energy and you'll be notified when it's your turn to board the ride.  After soaring high above Fantasyland with Dumbo, you'll find another popular play area for young kids - Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station.  As the name implies, your little ones will get wet here so you may want to be prepared with a change of clothes!

    If you haven't made plans for breakfast yet while visiting Magic Kingdom Park, I'd like to suggest trying to grab a reservation to dine with Winnie the Pooh and friends at The Crystal Palace.  This was always one of our favorite character dining experiences when my older boys were little.  I recommend trying to grab a reservation before the park officially opens so you can enjoy a quiet walk down Main Street, U.S.A., and some beautiful photo opportunities with Cinderella Castle.

    Stephanie, I hope this information is helpful as you finalize your plans for your upcoming trip!  If you have more questions, we'd love it if you choo-choo-choose to stop by planDisney again to see us!
