Ride the monorail in style

monorailThe monorail is a great way to get around Disneyland. It’s close to the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier, so if you’re staying at either of those hotels, this is a must ride for you.

If you have a little extra time, ask the Pilot if you can ride in the front. Riding in the front will let you get a bird’s eye view of the park. At night, the views are incredible.

Before you board, make sure you ask a Cast Member if the space up front is available. The front compartment can only hold 4 people, so plan ahead. You might have to wait for the next train for your turn, but it’s worth the wait.

*I know they are still doing this at Disneyland, but not sure about Disney World. Have you been able to take the ride up front at WDW lately?
