I don't have any experience with Goofy's if that is what you're asking for...
However, I can share about the monorail. There is a monorail station in Disneyland (aka the original Magic Kingdom). It is kind of tucked up in Tomorrowland between Autopia and Nemo. You ride the monorail around the property to the other stop which is in Downtown Disney (DTD). The DTD stop is at the "end" of DTD, near the Disneyland Hotel (DLH). It can be a quick way to DTD (and the DLH) if you're in Disneyland. If you want to enter the parks again, be sure to get your handstamped when you leave the DTD station.

I don't think anyone was trying to be harsh. It's just that the DLR (Disneyland Resort) is really close in proximity. Most people have the walking times to nearby hotels down to the minute. Also, as the PP said, there is a private entrance into DCA from the GCH, which greatly affects our minute-by-minute calculations. That's probably why you received the further questioning, because the dis experts just wanted to give you precise information. I think most of us who hang out on the disboards honestly want to help make people enjoy their Disney trips, not be a bunch of grumpy snobs. Or should I say maleficent snobs...don't want poor grumpy to get a bad name...

Yes, the original is Disneyland but many people say Disneyland in reference to both parks. I simply wanted clarification before attempting to answer.

Ummmmm who jumped on you? No one did, Jack and I simply asked for clarification, then I had a fundraiser after my first job and my second job to go to so I didn't get back on to respond. I did know that others would come in behind me and would be able to provide the response you wanted but again, wanted to clarify which park and which hotel. Your question was quite vague.

Thanks!
Yes, if you are in DL then grab the MR to go to DTD. It may or may not save walking time tho, it depends on how long the wait at the MR is. This might be a good time to have Mouse Wait to review ride wait times.
