9. Steam-powered magic
Another amazing Magic Kingdom tour experience to be had involves a very different train of thought. It’s Disney’s The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour, and for the avid train enthusiast, it’s certainly a must-do. Here you and your private group will join Disney’s railroad engineers for an eye-opening and informative look into the inner workings of the famed railroad that makes continuous rounds about the Park throughout the day. This experience begins early in the morning, prior to the Magic Kingdom’s opening for the day, and spans a three-hour duration in which you will gain access into the exclusive roundhouse area where the steam engines are stored and serviced. You’ll also learn about the care and maintenance that goes into the operations and that they run on much more than just pixie dust alone. Additionally, you’ll come away with an in-depth knowledge about Walt Disney’s lifelong love for trains and why he made them such a big part of both Disneyland and Disney World. And to top it all off, you’ll even get a private ride around the Park in a restored antique freight train.
