spectacular immersive and interactive 40-city train tour including a 3D sneak peek

Train Tour is an incredibly fun way to introduce families across the country to the
wonders and spectacle that is Robert Zemeckis’ unique and spectacular new
holiday film. We are so proud of the movie, and think the 3D footage is so
incredible, we just had to give everyone a chance to see it in Disney Digital 3D.
From Los Angeles to New York, and all points in between, guests are going to
have a fabulous time discovering things about the making of this extraordinary
film, participating in their own festive fantasies, and getting into the holiday spirit

new holiday classic.”
