Ride this high-speed, "green" transportation system that rockets along a single rail that circles Disneyland Park!
Route
As you are whisked around the Resort for a 13-minute ride, sit back and enjoy aerial views of Fantasyland and Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park and Condor Flats, Sunshine Plaza and Hollywood Pictures Backlot in Disney California Adventure Park. The route also parallels Harbor Boulevard and travels over the Disneyland Main Entrance and Entrance Plaza, taking you above and beyond the Park scenery.
Boarding Points
Board at the Tomorrowland station or the Downtown Disney District. It's the only Disneyland Park attraction that can be boarded outside of the Park.
The Trains
The fleet of trains comprises the Red, Blue and Orange Mark VII trains. Computer monitored, the trains are operated and controlled by onboard pilots. Running on a 600 volt DC at about 30 mph, the trains do not emit exhaust or pollutants. Thanks to an innovative painting technique, the surface of the trains shimmers with a visual electricity. The colors shift with a brush of light — from red to crimson, from blue to teal and from orange to a golden sunburst. It's not just a stroke of technological innovation. It's a work of art!
The First in America
The Disneyland Monorail was the first transportation system of its kind in America. It was based on a system built by the Alweg company and discovered by Walt Disney while traveling in Germany. It first appeared in Disneyland Park in 1959 with its "Googie" architecture, a space age look that was enormously popular during the 1950s. The Monorail celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 14, 2009!
