    This is something er never do, I think in all the years we have been visiting we have been on the train twice :unsure:

    If you ride it, do you ride the whole circuit or just use it to get from one side of the park to the other?

    Yes! A full circuit at least once and usually part way another couple of times.

    We did a full circle for the first time ever last time, I enjoy doing things like that!

    We normally do a complete "lap" of the MK on the train just before we leave the park on one of the days we are there.
    It`s nice to be able to sit down for a while after all the trecking around the park.

    Being the train buff that I am, most definitely. Always make a complete circuit at least once. We've even done the tour, which was fascinating. We leave here on the Auto Train on Wednesday (with car) and return a week from Tuesday on the train.

    I enjoy doing the train when we have a little downtime and we're not rushing from ride to ride. Haven't made it on the past couple trips, but maybe on the next one we will. I'm curious about the ride through New Fantasyland because I had heard that there will be a stop there now. When we have a specific destination in mind we just ride from one side to the other, but I've also done the complete circuit! Just depends on what we're doing at the time.

    The new Fantasyland stop is the Old Toontown Fair stop, but it has been remodeled.

    I figured. But it'll be worth it to see the changes.

    We rode it on our first trip with Tatiana to go to Mickeys Toontown

    Last trip that station was closed and MK was packed and there was a long line even for the train, so we skipped it. Hopefully we will ride it during the next trip to the New Fantasyland station

    Here is another vote for the full circle. Love it! It s good way to unwind and see the park in a full view.
