Preparing to ride in the front of the Monorail!

Preparing to ride in the front of the Monorail!

By Mike Ellis.

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!  Today Deb from Focused on the Magic has set the theme at Disney Transportation — and while I had no idea what I was going to write about at first, all of a sudden it dawned on me — I could write about riding at the front of the monorail when we went to Disneyland!

It was so much fun to be able to ride at the front of the monorail once again.  We had been able to do so at Walt Disney World, but of course that changed.  I learned that the reason they still do it at Disneyland is because the monorail at Disneyland is considered to be more of an attraction and not as much about transporting guests, so that’s why they can still do it.  On a side note, I really liked how the Disneyland Monorail had it’s curves and gave a whole new look to the park!  Now, enjoy my photos please, and thanks for stopping by!

    • The Disneyland Monorail, Mary, is kind of an oxymoron; parts of it are really cool, like riding up front, and the sweeping curves around some of the attractions, and seeing the traffic on the road while you are on the monorail. But parts of it just really don’t do anything for me, like seeing the backsides of the buildings and whatnot. Still, it was cool.

  1. Great pictures of a great mode of transportation. Looks like we need to sit up front next time :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very cool that you got to ride in the front, I love all the pics you got from your trip to DL ;-)
