Children receive a free train ride to Disneyland this spring on Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner and save 5% on theme park tickets too.

The deal: Each paid adult ticket to Anaheim comes with a free ticket for a child 2 to 12 years old, provided the pair travels together. Use the promotion code “V786” when making your purchase. Travelers can start their journey at any Pacific Surfliner stop between San Luis Obispo and San Diego.

Once at Anaheim’s station, about three miles from the theme park, your train ticket entitles you to a free shuttle connection to the park.

More savings: Use your Amtrak reservation number to save 5% on specially priced SoCal resident Disneyland tickets: $170 for a three-day pass (one park per day) or $222 for a three-day park-hopper pass.
