Magical Meals

 THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Character Experience

Expand the joy of the season with Magical Meals held in the beautiful Grand Hall at St. Louis Union Station. Dinners are held on selected nights during THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride season and are scheduled to allow guests to enjoy the experience before or after their train rides.

Guests interact with live THE POLAR EXPRESS™ characters during the hour-long dinners. The historic Grand Hall is decorated for the holidays with Christmas trees, lights and holiday treats, and THE POLAR EXPRESS™ 3-D holiday light and music show dances across the ceiling, telling the beloved story of a boy’s search for the real meaning of Christmas..

The Magical Meals feature two buffets, one designed to please kids and one with grown up tastes in mind. An elaborate dessert display ends the dinner on a sweet note.
Advance reservations are required. Space is limited to ensure a magical experience for all. Book early to get your preferred dates and times.
