We rode on this trolley but it was part of a Disney Adventure with a tour guide, so I'm not sure how this works if you are not on a tour.

Everything was great except our taxi driver who met us at the train station in Lancaster. He was very rude. But the tour itself was so informative. Wish I would have spent more time in this area.

Response from Pamela_McMahon | Property representative |
Hello, the first tour of the day leaves 5th & Market Sts at 9:30 am. If you board the first or second tour of the day, you should, barring unforeseen circumstances, have enough time. The tour takes about 90 minutes.
