The Disneyland website describes the Monorail as “the first such transportation system in America.” It provides transportation for theme park visitors between Tomorrowland Station and Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.
The attraction takes visitors on a journey through various Disneyland sites and attractions and passes through the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
The current version of the monorail combines design elements from the classic 1959 version with modern designs. The attraction page describes her as a “timeless Disney icon.”
Since the amusement ride is powered by a 600 volt DC power source, it does not emit any direct exhaust fumes or pollutants.
