It was only recently that the monorail had started running again on October 15th, 2021.


The monorail was introduced to Guests in 1959 and only operated within the Park. It was in 1961 that they extended it to make a stop at the Disneyland Hotel.

It has grown and now will take us from Downtown Disney into Tomorrowland. It is a very convenient way of transportation and a great way to see the incredible property.


This is how the monorail is described on the Disneyland website:


Fly the Highway in the Sky

Enjoy incredible, one-of-a-kind views on this classic 2.5-mile, 13-minute round-trip journey.

Fly over Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, past the majestic Matterhorn Bobsleds. Glide over Grizzly Peak, Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure Park. Zoom through Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and the Downtown Disney District.

Where to Board

There are 2 Monorail stations at the Disneyland Resort.

Catch a ride inside Disneyland Park at the Tomorrowland station right above Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.

Guests with valid theme park admission can skip the Main Entrance by boarding the Monorail at the Downtown Disney District station—and travel straight to Tomorrowland!

Trains run approximately every 10 minutes.

A Ride into History

The Disneyland Monorail was the first transportation system of its kind in America. The current version combines the sleek styling of the 1959 classic with new technologies and subtle design changes, bringing a retro-futuristic look and contemporary feel to the timeless Disneyland icon.

Today, the Disneyland Monorail is comprised of the Red, Blue and Orange Mark VII trains. Because the system uses a 600-volt DC power source, it emits no direct exhaust or pollutants into the atmosphere.
