Polar Express Train

I know it's early yet to be thinking about this but has anyone taken their children on the Polar Express Train? Dh and I heard about it last year but we had just moved so we didn't get to take them but this year we are wanting to. I was just curious if it is worth the money and the time (the nearest one to me is 2 hours away).

Happy Autumn!

Oh how fun!  We dont have one anywhere near us so I dont know what it is like, but if your little one is anything like mine they would love it no matter what!  My kids love, love, love that movie!  We are on our 3rd copy of it b/c it keeps getting worn out from being watched so much....lol.

I am hoping that my boys will like this. They are encouraged to wear their pj's too! lol My older girls are excited about going and they want to do the pj thing too but I think they are bit old for that. lol I just hope it's as good an experience as the movie. My boys don't remember the movie cause they are only 3 so we will be watching it a few times real soon. :) But they LOVE trains so I am hoping this will become a yearly event for us!

Happy Autumn!

that is so cool...it comes to canada, but only B.C :(

we have a train that goes around at christmas that is decorated, and they have singers, but nothing like that.

My girls and I went on it a couple of years ago. It was a lot of fun and the kids had a blast. I would love to do it again. The one we went to was in Northern Ohio.

I have taken my youngest son the last 2 years and it's a 3 hour drive for us. He LOVED it.

Thank you ladies for your input. I am excited about this and I hope my boys love it as well. We are going to get them special pj's for it and make a weekend mini vaca out of it. Should be fun. :)

Does anyone know if we can take pics?

Happy Autumn!

We heard about the Polar Express Train, I think they do something in Grand Rapids MI area but I have never checked into it.  My kids would love it..my oldest loves the movie.  What a great idea?  Does anyone know more about this...Have a great day.

We did the Polar Express train a few years ago through our park district so I'm not sure it's the same. My DD had so much fun!! We were able to take pics. I'd love to be able to do this again.
