Hello, and welcome to another week of Disney In Pictures! In this week’s edition, we are looking at one of my favorite things: Trains! I asked you to submit your favorite pictures of Disney Trains, whether that be pictures from the Walt Disney World Railroad, or from the Monorail, or from Rafiki’s Planet Watch, or even something else that I’m not thinking about! I asked, and you delivered! Thank you for sending me your pictures, now lets get on with the show!
First up on our list is my friend Amanda from Mouze Kateerz. Amanda has a couple of photos that she wanted to share, and one of them reminded me of a train that I forgot to mention. Here is what she had to say:
The first picture is my nephew, Jonathan, on one of his favorite “trains” at DW the Blue line lol
The second picture is my niece, Julia, pooped out from spending so much time at DW LOL
Next up is Dulcie, who has her own blog but is also one of the great writers for Chip & Company. Dulcie has three photos to share, here is what she had to say:
por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas
This is a phrase I can never grow tired of hearing…As a matter of fact it is the ringtone on my phone!
Come along on the ride of a lifetime and see what it looks like to ride in the front of the monorail around Walt Disney World….
February 25, 2009 marked my 35th birthday and I had lots of firsts happen at the park on that Magical day.
It was the first birthday that I got to spend in the parks with my 4 yr old daughter!! It was so much fun having a Mommie and Daughter weekend.
I also ended up with 3 No Strings Attached tickets from a wonderful Cast Member named Frankie…
My daughter and I ate popcorn for breakfast…It was a rule breaking weekend for us. We were living on the Wild Side *haha*
We were on our way over to the GF for dining reservations for my birthday dinner at 1900 Park Fare. Did I mention Cinderella has always been my favorite princess? So why can’t this Mommie have a character meal too?
So on the way over by way of monorail mind you we were picked to sit up front with the pilot !! In all my 33 years of going to Disney World
I’ve never sat up front and this was the royal treatment for me.
When we boarded I had chills thinking of all the years I had wanted to do this and I finally got to on MY birthday!
It was so cool seeing what things looked like from this perspective and I got some AMAZING photos from the trip around Seven Sea Lagoon.
It is so sad that it’s a privilege of the past but I’m glad that I can say my daughter and I got to celebrate and ride with the pilot on our special trip together.
Next is my friend Denny from Mouze Kateerz. Denny lives in Florida, and is always taking incredible photographs for us when he visits! Here is what he had to share with us:
All aboard! Here are two of my favorites, both from Fantasyland! Here’s a great memory: the old Toontown Station and the brand new Casey, Jr. water play area! Toontown always made me feel like I’d just stepped into a ‘toon! The Casey, Jr. Water play area is right next to the new Fantasyland Train Station. It’s a great way to cool the kids down on a hot day and is themed really nicely to the movie DUMBO. Thanks for the topic this week! Grins!
Teresa from Mouze Kateerz is next. She went beyond trains, and that’s perfectly okay with me! She has the following pictures to share. Enjoy!

Brenda and Roger are back and up next on our list! They are writers for Mouze Kateerz, but they also have their own blog at Back To Disney, so head on over and say hi! Here is what Roger had to share with us:
|Here is a Magic Kingdom Christmas tree,
|With a Christmas Train underneath!
My first year of Christmas season at Disney–soon I’ll be going for year 2!
[Editor’s Note: I’ll make it there one day for Christmas, Roger! In the meantime, enjoy it for us, okay?!]
Next up is my friend Deb, the incredible creator, author, and primary photographer from Focused on the Magic. Deb is one of the nicest people, and I always enjoy it when I get the pleasure of seeing her photos shared with all of us! Make sure you stop by her site, it’ll take your breath away! Here is what she had to say:
I’m sharing two pictures this week of my favorite form of transportation in WDW, the monorail. As much as I love riding the steam trains, it’s the monorail system that really makes me feel like I’ve arrived and I’m on vacation in Disney World. Both of these pictures were taken during The Flower & Garden Festival, one of my favorite times of year. So there you have it — my favorite form of transportation during my favorite time of year:)
Such breathtaking colors! I’ve never been to the Flower and Garden Festival, but that’s another on my bucket list! :) Thanks for taking us there in spirit, Deb, even if it’s just in these two photos!
The last people to send in photos this week are Justin and Jennifer, who wanted to share two photos of what used to be one of their kid’s favorite rides. Here is what they had to say:
I wanted to send these pictures in because this was one of my family’s favorite “rides” at Disney World before they stopped allowing it. My kids still ask if we can ride in the front of the monorail every time we go!
I know exactly what you mean! My wife, daughter and I did that also one year, it was such a tragic accident that forced this to end, but I for one would like to be able to enjoy that again. I guess I’ll need to become a Monorail pilot when I retire!
The Walt Disney World Railroad is one of those attractions that just takes me away, and allows my mind to travel back in time to the days when majestic trains like these graced the country. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures of the trains. Enjoy!
