Winterfest Polar Express Tours

223 Palafox Place Pensacola, FL

The fan-favorite Polar Express Tour is returning to Winterfest in Downtown Pensacola this holiday season, with voyages scheduled for the evenings of Nov. 21, 26, 27 and 28, as well as Dec. 3, 4, 10, 18, 19, 21, 22 and 23. This 20-minute tour immerses guests in the classic holiday story of the Polar Express with appearances by the Conductor as well as other beloved characters. Guests will see tap-dancing hot chocolate servers and snowy landscapes and learn what it truly means to believe. All passengers will be served a mini-cup of hot chocolate. Guests are encouraged to come dressed for a pajama party. The rider with the most festive pajamas on each trip will receive a special prize. As this performance takes place on an open-air tram, guests are welcome to bring blankets on chilly nights. A staple of the annual Winterfest experience, this year’s Polar Express Tour will be different from tours of the past. The musical performances have been re-staged to take place outside of the tram so that all guests will have a perfect view. Capacity on this tour will be limited to provide for social distancing. Guests older than 2 will be required to wear masks while onboard. Tours start at 5 p.m. on Fridays, and 4:30 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. New performances start every 15 minutes until 8 p.m..
