You have to go to the Williams Depot if you're taking the train to the Grand Canyon. Nice gift shop, clean and friendly people.

Greeted with the first snow of the season, enjoyable experience overall. Much of what we saw was strictly tourist directed. Was fun though, display was good.

The depot was larger than expected and considering the amount of people was very organized for the event. The outside area was decorated with Christmas lights and the inside was tastefully done. The buffet restaurant is very expensive on site.

The suitcases that you're taking to the canyon need to be dropped off in the Railway Hotel lobby in the morning. They'll take them all the way to your room at the canyon. Extra luggage will have to stay in your car. You... More
