Disney Monorail System

There's an interesting video posted at D23 with Bob Gurr (Disney Imagineer) regarding the development of the Disneyland monorail:

Enjoy!

I wish they would connect AKL and DTD to the rest of the world with monorail. It may boost attendance to both. I know it would be better than taking the buses!

Thanks for posting the link. Bob Gurr always has such great stories.

Its too bad the monorail didn't turn out to be a really good way of moving people around a large resort.

We rode the Mark 7 monorail at DL in 2009... we love the styling!
