This week was the first time we rode in the Disneyland Lilly Belle. The delightful red car is the caboose on one of the several Disneyland Railroad trains. The mahogany walls and ceiling are accented with stained glass windows along the top.

The red Victorian furniture has seated many a celebrity including Japan’s Emperor Hirohito. The smoking jacket that the Emperor gifted Walt Disney with is hanging in the front of the car. Ashley, our conductor shared the history of the Lilly Belle during our trip around Disneyland. We can’t wait to do it again with our grandchildren! Rumor has it that Captain Jack Sparrow himself actually sat in one of the chairs. We know our pirate loving grandson is going flip over that bit of trivia!
