For my family and I there is nothing better than visiting our most favorite place on earth, Disney World it is our oasis, a place to get away from the world to be in our own magical land where we are always happy. This is why we love Disney, it is more of a state of mind rather than just a vacation. Sure the rides are great too.. We love zipping down Splash Mountain, and trying to defeat Zurg in Buzz Lightyear spin they are some fun times. But one of my most favorite rides in the Disney Rail Road train.
Sure it is not a thrill ride, but it is something special. There is nothing like sitting back relaxing and taking it easy just enjoying life on a Disney train, this is one of my favorite things to do in Disney World and Disneyland. Perhaps I love this so much because the trains remind me of my grandfather and the love he had for trains. He would go all out during the holidays and take out his enormous train layouts! I would love hearing his train stories and helping him set up his model trains.
We are looking forward to learning more about these iconic trains while taking the Disney's The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour In Disney World on our next trip in December. I am sure the tour will be amazing, but what is even more amazing is a new book from Disney Publishing, called All Aboard, it is a history of Disney Trains we all know and love!
All Aboard By: Dana Amendola Series: Disney Editions Deluxe Forward by John Lasseter September 1st 2015 Ages Adult It’s usually said that it was “all started by a mouse” – but did you know that iconic mouse was invented while on a train ride? Since its inception, The Walt Disney Company has often ridden the rails to tell its stories, whether in a theme park, live-action movie, or animated film. All Aboard explores the wide variety of trains in Disney’s history, accompanied by rare photographs from the Disney Archives and heretofore unseen conceptual artwork behind the trains in the movies and theme parks. Never before has such a comprehensive focus been exclusively trained on this fascinating topic. Fans of Disney history, rail history, and armchair travelers alike will be captivated by this museum-quality book.
This book chronicles all of our favorite Disney trains, from park to park to the films. The pictures are breathtaking and colorful. I loved seeing the rare photos, and I learned a lot about Disney train history for this spectacular book. The book is a great quality book that would make a lovely coffee table book, or just a great addition to your Disney collection. If you have a train fan, or even just a big Disney fan they are going to love this new book. The book retails for $50.00, but is available on Amazon for the sale price of $34.95. I would highly suggest picking up a copy for the train fan on your gift list.
