Now to decide where we want to eat and hope that it is available as we are in our 180 day window already. :happybounce::happybounce::happybounce:

    Congrats... Last summer I was staying at POP and we could see from our room that Animation was almost complete. I really want to stay there but we already booked free dining at Caribbean Beach for August. Have fun planning.

    My sister used it and had a sleeper. It was about $400. Don't recall how long it took, but not always quicker than driving. Any sort of accident will delay the train and it happens sometimes.

    Jules the price varies depending on when you book and what kind of vehicle you take. Our one way trip without a sleeper, booked 5 months in advance is $345.40. The price keeps rising the closer it is to your actual trip and during certain periods (i.e. winter) it is even higher.

    That sounds like a good deal Tink.

    The train leaves both stations at 4PM and gets in at both stations at 9:30AM so it is about 17 1/2 hours. For me it takes longer than driving, but I don't get near as tired.
