Honk, Honk! The “highway in the sky” is back! Beginning Friday, Oct. 15 – Guests will once again be able to ride the classic Disneyland Monorail, as it officially returns to its daily operation as a part of phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort.
The Disneyland Monorail has been a beloved attraction for decades, ever since it first debuted at Disneyland in 1959 – more than 60 years ago! At that time, it was the first daily operating monorail in the Western Hemisphere.
The Disneyland Monorail not only serves as a fun transportation experience, but also offers a unique way to see elevated sights around the resort, including areal views of Tomorrowland and Fantasyland in Disneyland Park and Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park.
For Guests that might not know, there are two locations to board the Disneyland Monorail; one station is located in the Downtown Disney District and the other station is in Tomorrowland. For Guests staying at one of the three hotels of the Disneyland Resort, hopping on the Disneyland Monorail is a fun way to bypass the main entrance and ride their way directly into Disneyland Park! If Guests do decide to board from Downtown Disney, they should remember to make sure they have their valid ticket and theme park reservation ready, since this will serve as their official entry into Disneyland Park.
For additional details on the Disneyland Monorail, including hours of operation, Guests should check the Disneyland app. And don’t forget – a face covering will be required to ride this attraction, since it is an enclosed vehicle.
