THE POLAR EXPRESS™ returns to St. Louis Union Station for the 2020 Christmas season with some changes to allow for appropriate social distancing and safety.
The popular family event is recreated as Believe! THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Experience for 2020. This year the beautifully decorated trains will remain stationary under the Union Station train shed for a walk-through event. And guests will interact with the Polar Express characters and Santa Claus and his elves in whimsically decorated tents and on the Station's plaza.
Parking will be located in the main St. Louis Union Station lot located right off 18th Street. Guests will come through the main entrance where they will receive a white parking ticket. Guest will follow signage and flaggers to Believe! THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Experience event parking area inside the secured parking lot.
Event parking will be $5.00 per car. Parking vouchers will be available inside the ticket depot and merchandise tent. Upon departure guests are instructed to insert their entry ticket first, the parking voucher second to receive their discount, and then pay the $5 fee with a credit or debit card. No cash is accepted for parking at the exit.

The Ticket Office will be located at the entrance to the Depot/Tent area and passengers are required to check in prior to entering the event experience. We suggest guests arrive close to or right at their time of reservations. Once inside the experience will last approx.. 45 min.
We encourage families to dress in their warmest pajamas (The Polar Express themed attire) but this is not required.
Children 2 and under are free! We do ask that strollers are left in the secure/designated stroller area at the entrance to the event.
