I’ve been enjoying the insights in to the monorail at Disneyland. Maybe one of these visits we can ride in the nose cone!

Wow, Erin. I just saw in that video the actual tires on the monorail that help propel and stabilize the vehicle. Hmm.

I have seen the monorail floating effortlessly dozens of times before, believing that because it is *our beloved Disneyland Monorail, that its method of propulsion surely must be “faith, trust, and a little pixie dust.”

Hi Erin,

There’s nothing like the Disneyland Monorail, nothing. It’s an entirely different experience from the minute a guest boards. I love, love, loved my ride!

Thank you,
