Plus, today, Thursday, December 22, Disney imagineers have shared a few more details about the relaunch of the much loved Magic Kingdom opening day attraction.

In addition to the major track work that has taken place during the long closure of the railroad, Walt Disney Imagineering has added new narration with all new voice work.

"The familiar whistle of its steam engine will be complemented by exciting new sounds and voices," the team of Imagineers shared. "A new conductor has assumed the role, carrying on the long tradition of warm welcomes and amusing anecdotes while adding fresh commentary and story to the journey."

A new conductor character was created for the audio tour to provide “a voice our guests can envision and resonate with. Someone who grew up on Main Street, U.S.A., dreaming of the day they’d be on the railroad. They’ve now achieved that dream, and they know everyone and everything at Magic Kingdom … an unofficial mayor of sorts. This conductor is humble, genial, and knowledgeable, and he’s eager to help passengers of these iconic steam trains get to their destinations around the park he loves so dearly.”

While our conductor points you to the familiar sights on your left and right, we embrace what makes Magic Kingdom a place unlike any other, where you can escape into completely new worlds and celebrate with characters you love. This legacy attraction now holds true the very nostalgia of opening day and blends it with the wonder of new adventures, immersing you into story after story as it loops around the park. You may even encounter a character or two along the way!

It has also been revealed that Cast Member previews have started today on the railroad, so get ready to ride the rails again soon at Magic Kingdom!
