lilly belle…

21 Mar

Another AMAZING opportunity we had and are very thankful for is riding the lilly belle on our Disneyland trip!  It was Walt’s private train car for him to use at the park named after his wife. We had been wanting to ride it for awhile now and were lucky enough to take it on the grand circle tour.

It is tiny, but seats plenty and the decor has been redone over the years, but there are still samples and artifacts from Walt’s use.

We were able to sign the log book and were just enjoying our time with friends.

It amazing that so much is done for Walt’s family to enjoy the parks and be available for the company.  A lot of sacrifice, but also a lot of joy!

    The only time we’ve been able to luck into a ride on the lilly belle was on our honeymoon. It’s definitely a “must see” for a Disney fan. I’m so glad you got to ride it. Did you get the souvenir tickets?

      unfortunately no, but it was still super fun!

        We didn’t know about the log they kept so at least you got to sign your names to it so that’s cool! 🙂

        Yes! I wish I would have gotten a ticket, but still an amazing experience and I have photos!
