Philadelphia, PA, to Orlando, FL, by train

The train from Philadelphia, PA to Orlando, FL, lasts on average 28 hr 3 min. Around 4 trains depart a day between Philadelphia, and Orlando, FL, the average price is $178.01 and the lowest ticket pricing starts at around $128.64.

Amtrak, the largest passenger railroad service in the US, operates the train from Philadelphia to Orlando. The two cities are connected by the Silver Service line, composed of two trains, Silver Meteor and Silver Star.

The Silver Service is a long-distance Amtrak service connecting New York and Miami and serving many smaller cities, one of them being Orlando. All trains have Viewliner sleeping cars, with the option of booking a smaller roomette or a more comfortable bedroom. Still, unlike the Silver Star, the Silver Meteor has a dining car, which also means that the sleeping cars get inclusive room service. 

So there are two options to pick from if you want to sleep on the train:

The Roomette is tiny at first glance, but it is very well-used. Different innovative storage options will surprise you at every step. Two comfortable recliner seats turn into a bed, and a second bunk bed that you pull from the ceiling makes enough space for two people to sleep and have a great view. The older Viewliner cars have a toilet and a sink in the room (one of the surprises under the steps to the upper bunk), which can be tricky if there are two people. The newer cars have toilets and bathrooms in the hallway.

The Bedroom is twice as big, with a comfy queen bed and a bathroom in the room (separated by a door). It has all the amenities of a Roomette, but is more spacious and pricier. 

If you opt for the sleeping car, keep in mind that you must book the entire unit, whether alone or with someone. Also, the coach has comfortable reclining seats, perfect for getting some shut-eye, so give it a chance.

In Philadelphia, you can board at two stations:

  1. 30th Street Station, officially William H. Gray III, initially built in the 1930s, has since become a hub for transportation with access to Amtrak, SEPTA, and other forms of public transit. The beautiful station building is located in the University city, filled with restaurants and cafés, providing plenty of things to do and see. The famous Liberty bell is also easily reachable; if history is not your thing, you can always stroll down the Delaware river.
  2. Another option is the North Philadelphia station. It is located on Broad Street and close to tourist attractions such as the African American Museum of Philadelphia and the Rodin Museum. However, the station also has a reputation for being unsafe, and it may be better to exit on the 30th Street Station, which is constantly monitored and protected by the police and Amtrak security.

In Orlando, there are two options on how to end your journey.

The central Orlando Amtrak station, 1400 Sligh Blvd, is a beautiful historical building from the 1920s that offers the convenient service of checked baggage and free overnight parking. Unfortunately, it could be better connected, especially if you are going to Disney World; in that case, the Kissimmee station would be a better option. The city center, Universal studio, and Disney World are approximately 10 miles away, but the only way to reach them is by taxi (Uber, Lyft)

Silver service and the local Sun Rail serve Kissimmee station. There is no parking available, but several car rental companies are at the station. It is located in the historic city center and close to Disney World, but you will still need an Uber or a Lyft to get there. 

Orlando is one giant theme park. Besides the previously mentioned Disney World, it is also home to Seaworld, Legoland, Universal Studios, and site-specific Gatorworld, making Orlando a dream destination for families and everybody else. But if you are interested in something more sophisticated, we recommend checking out Winter Park and Thornton Park, Orlando's trendy neighborhoods, for some shopping and fine dining. For those with an appetite for adventure, Orlando Wetlands Park offers a glimpse of the Orlando wildlife (you know, alligators).
