I have taken my six year old grandson every year since he was three. He loves the train ride, seeing the trains, riding the carousel, talking to the elves, the conductor and of course Santa Claus. These memories will last him a lifetime...

I understand that you get what you pay for, but this was pretty disappointing. As previous reviews have said, there's not much in the way of holiday decorations on the train and the train itself could use some TLC. Not even music playing on the...More

We have gone to Fillmore and rode the Christmas Tree Train for 15 years. We didn't go the past couple of years and decided to go again. The town of Fillmore is charming and it is fun to walk the main street, look in the...More

I am disabled and was able to board the train with ease and able to sit at the table (chairs, not benches) for meals. Just let them know you are handicapped/disabled when making your reservations. Have a great time! :)
