A vacation at the Walt Disney World Resorts can be a fun and exciting time. Chances are you have plans that will keep you and your family busy from the moment of you check into your room through the time you check out. Traveling to Disney by train can be a lot of fun, plus it will give you some down time before arriving and plenty of time to relax before returning home.
Here are some tips to help you plan your next train adventure to Disney World:
There are three train stations in the Disney area, both are just a short drive to the parks and resorts.
1400 Sigh Blvd.
Orlando, FL 32806
111 E. Dakin Ave.
Kissimmee, FL 34741
600 S. Persimmon Ave.
Sanford, FL 32771
For more information about both train stations call Amtrak at 800.872.7245 or visit Amtrak.com.
Depending upon how long of a trip it is to get to the Orlando area, traveling via coach should be comfortable enough. If you feel you will be able to sleep through the night in a reclining seat, coach will give you the best fares for your trip. If not, there are sleeping cars available, but are a bit more expensive than traditional coach seating.
Bring a cooler of food to enjoy while riding the train. This will help you stick within a budget and prevent you from needing to worry about dining car reservations. This will ensure you have something to eat, especially when the dining car only has late night reservations available. For those staying in a sleeping car, food is generally included with the fare.
Avoid having to pay for a rental car by bringing your car with using the Auto Train. This will give you the comfort of having your own car with you and could save you money. Though costs to bring your car with can get pricey, so check to ensure that it does not end up costing more than getting a rental car.
So, the next time you are planning a trip to Disney World, consider trying something new. Make plans to ride the rails cross country to the Central Florida area. The trip may be just as exciting as visiting Mickey Mouse himself.
