What is the difference between the Santa Special and North Pole Express?

Posted on August 26, 2017

The Santa Special is a daytime trip aboard festively-decorated rail cars. It is a shorter ride (60 minutes – great for younger children) without car hosts or refreshments. Santa and Mrs. Claus spend more quality time with young passengers which makes it a great opportunity to take holiday photos and a nice alternative to going to see Santa at the mall.

The North Pole Express is a nighttime experience where passengers travel to the North Pole to pick up Santa Claus. Each coach car features festive characters who entertain guests with stories, songs and performance. Cookies and hot chocolate are served, and Santa and Mrs. Claus move through the cars, greeting the passengers with a small gift.
