There are many special ways to celebrate the holidays, but taking a trip on the North Pole Limited is one of the most magical in all of Southern California.
Children munch on chocolate chip cookies, sip hot chocolate and sing Christmas carols as the train approaches Santa’s workshop.
Parents help write letters to Santa in anticipation of the special time they will spend with him.
Elves read the story of The Polar Express.
Then, finally, the train approaches, and Santa can be seen waving and ho-ho-ho ing
After Santa climbs aboard he makes his way throughout the train, stopping to sit with each and every family, listening to Christmas wishes and spreading holiday joy.
The Santa train sells out nearly every year, so even though we haven’t made it through Halloween yet, it’s not too early to pick a date to visit “The North Pole.” Tickets range from $10 – $40 for toddlers and children and from $35 – $50 for adults. These photos were taken in the first class car, and we felt that those tickets were well worth the extra expense.
