This is the best Christmas present ever! This attraction has been closed for over four years, but now, guests can officially enjoy the beautiful rides around his Kingdom of Magic. Yesterday, the cast waved to the guests and enjoyed the train journey. It was a refreshing sight to see.
Disney publishes the official hours of operation for the Walt Disney World Railroad. Visitors can ride from 10am to 6pm, and this attraction is suitable for all ages and heights.
Here’s how Disney describes the attraction:

Introducing the history of railways
- The Walt Disney World Railroad was an opening day attraction on October 1, 1971, when the locomotive stopped only on Main Street in America. On June 18, 1988, the third station was opened. [what was then] Mickey’s Birthday Land. (This station is considered the storybook his circus section of Fantasyland.)
- All four trains that make up the Walt Disney World Railroad were built between 1916 and 1928. In 1969, The Walt Disney Company purchased a locomotive from the Yucatan Railway Company, a railroad located in the state of Yucatan, Mexico. After Disney acquired them, each was restored and named after a different Disney legend.
