Myself and a group of friends had an excellent time. Although the seats are assigned they actually made accommodations so that we all sat together or at the very least across from each other. I’m not a super picky eater but I really enjoyed my prime rib meal and the dessert at the end was a nice surprise. They have water, tea and wine but no soda products in case you want to know. That’s not a problem for me but a friend really wanted a coke and they didn’t have any. I imagine you can bring your own. The dinner train ride was very relaxing.
The ride was short and sweet. Staff was theatrical and warm. Gift shop prices are to be expected and they are generous with the amount of time they give you to board. Great time overall!
