A Disney Guest favorite to reopen tomorrow at Disneyland Resort

Calling all Disneyland fans! The time has come, and beginning tomorrow, October 15, you’ll again be able to board the monorail and whoosh off to your next destination!

The classic monorail system is reopening to Guests as a part of the phased reopening of the Happiest Place on Earth and will return to daily operation beginning tomorrow morning.

The Disneyland Monorail has been a staple in the park for more than 60 years, as it first debuted in 1959. At that time, the Disneyland Monorail was the only daily operating monorail in the entire western hemisphere!

If you’re new to Disneyland, or if you’ve never ridden aboard the monorail, there are a couple of things to know. First, there are two different spots where Guests can board the monorail. There is a monorail station at the Downtown Disney District, and there is another in Tomorrowland. If you’re a Guest staying at one of Disneyland’s three hotels, you can use the monorail for transportation to and from Disneyland Park without having to access the main entrance and stand in line to be admitted.

Just be sure you have your valid ticket and your theme park reservation ready to show, as this will ensure you are granted entrance into the park from the monorail. This is important even if you board at Downtown Disney to head into the park.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
