If you love the movie "Polar Express" then you're sure to enjoy Tavares, Florida's magical train trip to the North Pole. The train is a real 1907 steam engine locomotive where you ride in vintage coaches and sing Christmas songs. Costumed waiters serve hot chocolate and cookies while the train travels to the North Pole. Once the train reaches its destination, Santa and his elves board the train to present each kids with a special gift before the train returns to Tavares.

The Cannonball Christmas Express departs 4:00, 5:15, 6:45 & 8:00 on December 6, 8, and then daily from December 13-23, 2013. Tickets are $27 for adults, $20 for children (3-12) and kids under 3 are free.

Take a trip back in time and create a special family Christmas memory this year.
