The kids enjoyed the train ride, so I guess it was worth it for them. I would not do it again as it is a slow trip and it leaves too late in the day.

The suitcases that you're taking to the canyon need to be dropped off in the Railway Hotel lobby in the morning. They'll take them all the way to your room at the canyon. Extra luggage will have to stay in your car. You... More
