Disneyland Monorail reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Disneyland Monorail, a track ride in Tomorrowland at Disneyland.
Written by Eric 5675
The Disneyland Monorail System was originally opened in 1959 as an E-ticket ride which circled through Tomorowland and Fantasy Land stopping only at the Tomorrowland station. Today, it is a fun, scenic ride transportation ride with speeds peaking 40 MPH running off electricity from a "third rail" on the track. It travels a 2.5 mile loop from the Tomorrowland Station to the Downtown Disney Station and back. It is a great way to get from the hotels to the back corner of the park.
The lines for this ride is generally a walk on. However, beware of certain times you will wait for a while.
The best experience is riding up front in the cab with the driver. Enjoy your trip on the "Highway in the Sky!"
Usually, they run two out of the three trains, although three might be run on extremely busy days. All trains now run at full capacity, so wait times have decreased.
Disabled Guests: While the queue is now a cement ramp, you may chose to use the elevator. Ask a Cast Member for assistance.
