A Unique Point of View: Disneyland Monorail Visits Fantasyland Attractions

posted on May 27th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


Anyone who has strolled through Fantasyland at Disneyland park knows the familiar double-honk from the Disneyland Monorail as it begins to make its way around the Matterhorn. Its course takes it past some of our classic attractions, and thanks to some clever maneuvering, Disneyland Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer was able to catch these shots of the Disneyland Monorail as it passed “it’s a small world” and Alice in Wonderland.

It’s a true honor to usher in the celebration of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Anniversary as we celebrate the triumph of imagination in a place where dreams really do come true.”
