Our family really looks forward to riding the Santa Express Train each year at the beginning of the holiday season. This year for the first time, our daughter brought a friend of her along with us. After we arrived, we found our gate and boarded the train. Shortly after arriving, we ordered our drinks and dinner for all of us. Then, they brought us the best hot chocolate and cookies that tasted homemade. The staff played games with the kids as we rode towards The North Pole to meet with Santa and his elves. The kids were all ages and had so much fun playing together and singing holiday songs. We really enjoyed the dinner that was served before the highlight of the trip.
We could feel the excitement in the air as we turned the corner and saw the sign welcoming us to The North Pole. Then, to see the town with Santa and his elves waving back to all of us on the train was an incredible moment, especially for the all the kids. After the train stopped, Santa boarded with his elves to visit with each of the kids. Santa gave our daughter and her friend a special reindeer bell and sat down to talk with them for a couple of minutes. The pictures we took while they visited were so amazing. The elves had great stories about living with Santa at The North Pole they shared with the kids as Santa was visiting with others.
Our daughter and her friend had so much fun they couldn’t stop talking about the trip as we drove home. The Santa Express Train ride is such a memorable holiday experience for families and anyone else who loves the holiday season.
