I think it's just all a part of the monorail experience. It's a phrase that immediately conjures up the vision of being on the monorail, waiting in the station as the doors close. It puts you in a specific place, and if you say it to someone else who's a Disney fan, you don't have to explain it - they know what you're talking about and what the reference is.

This is the phrase all disney monorail fans know. When you get on the monorail from any resort and your just that much closer to the MK and you hear "please stand clear of the doors"..then por favor..the phrase just gets to you. Ive heard the pharse so many times on the monorail i just happened to memorize it. Now that the phrase is on a tshirt, i gotta buy it!!

Like they say, if you 'get it', no explanation needed, if you 'don't get it', no explanation will help.

Bingo.

They sell t-shirts in the Magic Kingdom now with that phrase on it. I picked one up as soon as I saw it.

I also have it on my ipod.

It's the Spanish translation of "please stand clear of the doors"

My daughter, 22, who was raised on trips to the world, saw the tshirt when we were there in Jan and had to have it. Contemp and Poly gift shop had just a few. We ended up finding it in the right size at World of Disney.
Everyone is right... you have to be a "Disney-ite" to really understand it's significance. My daughter and I both had it as ring tones at one time. We actually just recorded it to the phone on a ride on the monorail one day.

I have the tee shirt too.

That phrase is also sometimes the alternative club creed at the Adventurers Club.

In the Emporium. You can also get them at all the monorail resorts and the WOD store in DTD.

My Brother, Cousin, and myself spent the entire trip back in '97 trying to figure out and memorize the phrase. This took many trips on the Monorail. This has been somewhat of a joke for us for over a decade, now. I never knew it was such a fan favorite untill about a year or two ago. Ohhh,.....and guess what I found under the x-mas tree this past year. Go on, guess!


Thats right!!! The shirt!!!pirate:

These shirts are pretty popular. Pretty hard to chase down. On Tuesday the 12th, in the Emporium there were quite a few. Friday night, they were sold out.

It's very funny to me. When my laptop shuts down, this phrase is what plays.

Follow this link to get a copy of the Monorail Por Favor Phrase: (it's under other)

http://www.wdisneyw.co.uk/sounds.html

Right click and "Save Target As" onto your desktop. Mine actually, saved and plays in itunes, but you'll also have a link on your desktop.



To save as a closer:

-Start
-Control Panel
-Sounds and Audio Devices
-Sounds
-In the Sounds Que under "Program Events," scroll down and click on "Exit Windows"
-In the Sounds Que under "Sounds" you'll need to select the monorail jingle by browsing. Look in Desktop. Click "Monorail" "ok" "apply" "ok"

Now just shut down your computer and see if it works.

Once you figure this out, you can program alot of different sounds. Spectro Magic music upon opening...

I have a monorail christmas ornament that lights up and has the same voice, but not this saying. Whenever I press it while it's on the tree, we all try to remember the phrase. Love that ornament.

I've got the fridge magnet that cycles through the various monorail phrases. Now I REALLY need the shirt. Thankfully, I'm making a day trip in March. =)

Wow, you're right. Nice catch. Strange they would mess that up on an official shirt like that.

Thanks DisneyWorld Delight for the audio and computer tips!

I think the monorail speil is lots of people's little private joke. I guess when thousands of people feel the same, it's not so private and they can make T-shirts about it.
Even people that have never been know the castle, parades, characters, and stuff, but the monorail thing is kind of like something you'd have to be there to get.
