  • [Fun] Grand Circle Tour repeated

    How many times around the park on the Disneyland Railroad have you taken without disembarking?

    I think we went around 1 1/2 times, but can’t remember staying on much longer than that.

    For me ,There been couple time ,I have went around twice
    I always Enjoy Train Rides.......and Disneyland Railroad !
    "ALBOARD"

    Note:
    I only would do that ,when there is no lines at the station's
    I want be fair to other's- and it very rare that happens.

      One year, I was bitten by some spider on my leg. My system didn't react well to it, but I was at Disneyland for the week, so I wasn't about to let the unending waves of pain, dizziness, and the leg changing colors from purple, blue, red, green, and yellow stop me!

      It was probably all the walking through the park that got me through this NY keeping my blood pumping, but the pain was a burning nature, and when I'd sit down, I would quickly pass out. My girlfriend at the time advised that we'd gone the full circle tour five times at one point while I was unconscious. I'll take her word for it.

        I think I remember 1.5 circles. We got on at NOS, did a full round, then stayed on till Tomorrowland to avoid a parade.
        Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

          We as a family have done 1.80 Main Street one loop and then going around to Tomorrowland station it was one of those time when the kids where younger and needed a lil break so we got them frozen lemonades and road around until they finished and then got off on the land that their next ride requests was at.

          My wife and I went just the two of us once and stayed on it for over two laps I think we got on at Tomorrowland looped twice and then go off at NOS when our MaxPass window opened. It was a nice relaxing break while we killed time for our MaxPass.

          I could easily sit on it and ride around for several laps but my family is not quite as excited as I am about the changing views etc. I always get off wanting to ride more and often I think that is a good thing. If I were to get on and ride for hours like I daydream about sometimes, it might spoil the ride for me.

            Sometimes when I'd go with an older relative who wanted a quick afternoon nap, we'd get on and ride around three or four time while he dozed off to the soothing chuffs and rhythmic "clickety-clack" of the rails. Seriously, is there truly a more relaxing experience to be had in the Park?

            In the 1990s, I was friends with several operating engineers, and I'd grab cab rides with them for two or three circuits.

              it was great for the kids to nap when they were young.

                In October of 2015 we did 6 consecutive complete grand circle tours, from the Main St. Station. It was insanely crowded that day due to an unofficial event that day, so we decided to just relax on the DLRR for a handful of grand circle tours. Once done, we got ice cream from the Gibson Girl (I got the Dalmation, my go-to) and relaxed more on a bench in Town Square, then headed home around 5pm.

                      2 1/4 (started at MS and after the second grand circle tour, I got off at NOS to visit Batuu. I would have a gown a third time just for the improved river segment, but it would be inconvenient to be dropped off at TT).

                      There have been times I stayed another trip just because I was lucky enough to talk with a chatty CM (earlier in the morning is the best time to ride because the railroad is overlooked for more flashy rides; hence the CM had more time to “relax” and point out details that you might miss).

                          I would honestly love a full grand circle tour with no stops just keep chugging along would be an amazing way to relax in the middle of the day.

                              I've done a full 2 when I was tired and the park was super crowded.

                                It is different when you roll though the stations without stopping.

                                    I have had them skip one station before and it really is a different experience, would love the full grand circle.
