I don’t know about you, but it seems like the Walt Disney World Railroad is something that boys like more than girls. I don’t doubt that I’m wrong, and that I’m stereotyping here, but in my family, riding the Walt Disney World Railroad all the way around (and sometimes further) is something that I really like to do, while my girls would rather just ride it one stop and get off — although they do humor me. I don’t need to ride it every day we are at the Magic Kingdom, but it is definitely on my list for at least once per visit.
The Walt Disney World Railroad has several steam locomotives; they include the Walter E. Disney, named after Walt himself, the Lilly Belle, named after his wife, Lillian, the Roy O. Disney, named after Walt’s brother, Roy, and the Roger E. Broggie (pictured below), named after one of the key Imagineers who helped with the Walt Disney World Railroad.
Do you and your family take time to ride the Railroad, and if so, how far do you go? All the way around or just to a stop or two? Let me know in the comments, and thanks!
