On the ride to the North Pole, expect a live production of singing and dancing from sound tracks to The Polar Express movie. Afterwards, a storybook reading of The Polar Express takes place.

The train is decorated much like scenes from the animated film. Renovated to reflect a 1950s era, the train may be chilly, and passengers are advised to dress appropriately.

Every passenger will be served cookies and cocoa, and will have a view of the North Pole. Passengers are encouraged to wear their pajamas on board, just like the movie.
