Depending on the language you select, scenes 3 and 21 (where the conductor punches the tickets) and scene 23 (the note from Santa) will show the words in English, Spanish or French matching the selected language. You cannot switch the audio while the feature is playing - only from the language menu and then the film starts from the beginning but you can go to scene selection to jump to those chapters directly.

Disc Two of "The Polar Express" has five "Stocking Stuffers" hidden in the menu system. Each of these Easter Eggs will lead you to a special scene comparison (there are five in total). On the top of the screen is behind-the-scenes footage of Tom Hanks, in his performance-capture suit, playing each character. On the bottom of the screen is the actual scene from the movie. Here's how to find each egg:

1) From the first page of the "Special Features" menu, highlight "You Look Familiar" and press up to highlight the "Special Features" box. Hit enter. (1:00)

2) From the first page of the "Special Features" menu, highlight "More" and press left to highlight an ornament in the lower left corner of the screen. Hit enter. (2:09)

3) From the first page of the "Special Features" menu, select "A Genuine Ticket to Ride". Let the inital featurette play. Once in the section's sub-menu, highlight "Play All" and press left to highlight another ornament in the upper left corner of the screen. Hit enter. (1:23)

4) From the first page of the "Special Features" menu, select "Languages". Once in, highlight "Francais" and press left to highlight another ornament in the upper left corner of the screen. Hit enter. (1:24)
