The engine is chugging, the smoke is “poofing” and track is a clacking once again at Walt Disney World. That’s right, last week Magic Kingdom welcomed guests back onboard as the Walt Disney World Railroad returned. The opening-day attraction returned with a completely refreshed track looping the park. Along with another new surprise for fans and first- comers alike.
A long tradition continues
Not only did the historic train undergo track updates and maintenance, the Imagineers used this opportunity to introduce an all new voice for narration. “The familiar whistle of its steam engine will be complemented by exciting new sounds and voices”, the team of Imgineers shared. “A new conductor has assumed the role. Carrying on the long tradition of warm welcomes and amusing anecdotes while adding fresh commentary and story to the journey.”
These meticulously restored steam trains will be guided around the parks by a voice that guests can envision and resonate with. The conductor is humble, genial and knowledgeable, and he’s eager to help passengers get to their destinations.
Embracing what makes Magic Kingdom unlike any other place, familiar sights and sounds will surround you along your journey. This legacy attraction now holds true the very nostalgia of opening day and new adventures. Immersing you into story after story as it loops around the park. A character or two may even pop up along the way.
Magic Kingdom is delighted to share Walt Disney’s love of trains with the world once again. Taking guests on an iconic grand circle tour of Magic Kingdom. Riding the trains has always been a favorite event for my family. I am so extremely happy to see them back.
