    New Mark VII Monorail at Disneyland

    I was finally able to ride the new Monorail in Disneyland this evening, and what a wonderful experience! The interior is quite different then the other models, and it seems to focus on letting everyone see out. I've attached photos for you all!

    This one is blurry because I didn't have the flash on...
















    There are a few more that can be found in my Flickr sets.

    It looks awesome. It's a pity they didn't put in air conditioning.

    Re: New Mark VII Monorail at Disneyland

    I was on one for once when I was out there Last Summer. They are amazing, and much better then the old ones. Yes In WDW the old ones seem fine, but in DL, UGGG THERE SUCH A HASSLE!!! But the ride I want to add, is more off a ride, then a Transportation Method!!!

    Re: New Mark VII Monorail at Disneyland

    We went to go ride these when were out there in March, but it had been raining and they had stopped running the monorail. I guess they have windows that are fixed open and the interior was too wet to allow guests to ride. We did get to ride them later though and I thought they were nice. I would agree that this seems much more of an attraction then a method of transportation at DLR.

    Yes, the Mark VII is more attraction than transportation, but it does provide transportation from Tomorrowland to Downtown Disney and back.

    That being said, it's a much nicer experience, IMHO, than the Mark V's were.

    They're so gorgeous. They're way better looking than the WDW ones. I like the seating facing out, too.
