Seating for Polar Express

Which seats in first class are facing the North Pole? Not sure if I should get seats on left or right side of train. We will be going in November and would like to be sitting so my kids will be able to see the lights. Thanks for any info.

I don't think there's much of a view of anything until you stop and disembark -

You DO NOT disembark for Polar Express. Santa gets on the train when you stop at the North Pole. The seats you want would be on the left side of the train as you face the front of the train. If you can try for a 8 pm or so ride. That is when all the lights will show off the best. You and your family will have a wonderful time!
