    We've never been on the train at Magic Kindom before.
    Is it worth a ride?
    What sights do you see while on the train?

    It's definitely worth the ride. I think it's quite enjoyable. I would make the full circle, just to have the ride.

    me too :yes:

    So, you don't have to get off at one end then, you can do a full loop? How long would this take?

    About 20 minutes or so, but the time flies, especially if you are just wanting to rest a little.

    Definitely worth a trip. :thumbsup:
    We usually get on at Main Street station and go all the way round. You can see the back of several attractions, such as BTM.
    I've taken some good snaps from the train.

    Definitely what Piglit says. :wiggle:

    And it's a nice way to take the weight off of your feet for 20 minutes.:thumbsup:

    Thank you :thumbsup:

    Do you normally find long lines to get on the train as you would the attractions?

    I've found the longest lines in Frontierland and the shortest lines in Mickey's Toontown if that's any help.

    The trains are every 20 minutes and hold lots of people.

    I can't even think of where you would go for the train in Frontierland :unsure:
    Is Mickeys Toontown still open with the new expansion having started?

    It's on the right-hand side, up stairs, as you enter the entrance to Splash Mountain.

    I don't think many people get on at Toontown because of stroller issues - if you have your own stroller you'd have to do a full loop to get back to it. If you have a rental stroller you have to leave it and collect another one at the place you get off.

    Ah, thank you. That explains why I didn't know where it was - never been on Splash Mtn.
