Get in the Holiday Spirit with Polar Express! Monique got a chance a to take her family last night and check out what she had to say! She went to the TX Railroad location in Texas a few hours from McKinney!
Everyone there, from the will call, to the greeters, to the railroad staff were all very friendly, welcoming and excited to be there as well. The train station was decorated and there were different places to take some fun photos. There was also a gift shop to visit. We got on the train and we were welcomed and given photo opps right away. Once the train started it’s trip, music started playing and hot chocolate and cookies were served. We were even given seconds on the hot chocolate which I thought was very gracious of them. Then we got to hear the story being read and they walked around showing us pictures from the book. Soon we arrived at the North Pole (where you stay on the train) where we saw Santa and his elves outside. Next thing we knew, Santa had boarded the train. The kids were all so excited, so cute! He walked through all the train cars said his hellos and handed each child a special Polar Express jingle bell to keep. Then we headed back and sang Christmas carols (they let us all borrow books to follow along). The staff was so lively and sang and danced with us the whole way back. It was a magical experience for the kids, we all loved it!!!
