Seating Information:
Please note, the Grapevine Vintage Railroad requires guests to reserve seats by the bench for this excursion. Each bench accommodates two guests. This means for parties of odd numbers, an even number of seats must be selected at checkout. A family of three, for example, would select four seats on two benches, which can be turned to face each other on the train.

Parking Information:
Parking is available within walking distance to the Christmas Village (705 S. Main St.). Shuttles will not operate this year, so allow plenty of time to park and get to the village. Guests can also park for free at their local TEXRail station and ride to Grapevine/Main Street Station for a short walk to the Christmas Village. TEXRail riders can also show their metro train ticket for front-of-the-line access in the fast track line for North Pole Express boarding passes.
