WDW Express Monorail - Just for fun!
Not a secret, but here's a transcript of the WDW Express monorail spiel (a bit outdated, but still fun for dorks like me that just love the monorail!!):
"Welcome aboard the Walt Disney World express monorail, our highway in the sky to the Magic Kingdom. For those of you standing, please hold on to the hand rails through out our journey and stay clear of the doors. For the comfort of others, no smoking please. Thank you.
We are circling the Disney created, Seven Seas Lagoon. Rising from the Magic Kingdom on the opposite shore is Cinderella Castle. You can also see Disney's mountain range, Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain in Frontierland, and Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. To the right hand side on the shores of Bay Lake is Disney's Wilderness Lodge which captures the spirit of the National Parks Service lodges built in the west during the early part of this century. Also on Bay Lake you can enjoy a natural setting at Disney's Fort Wilderness resort and Campground. More outdoor recreation can be found at River Country, Disney's version of the old fashioned swimming hole. Discovery Island, an 11 acre zoological park, is located in the center of Bay Lake. Launches to Discovery Island depart from Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, the Magic Kingdom, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
We are entering Disney’s Contemporary Resort where on the Grand Canyon Concourse you can start your day with Chef Mickey’s Character Breakfast. For a panoramic view of Walt Disney World the California Grill, located on the 15th floor, offers an exquisite array of fine dining experiences with each meal prepared on stage as a specialty of the house.
While your group is together, now is a great time to pick a place to meet if you become separated in the park. Should you become separated stop by City Hall on Main Street USA for assistance. Guest Relations at City Hall can also help you plan your day, make dining arrangements, or provide a special guided tour of the Magic Kingdom.
In front of the Magic Kingdom is Disney’s Walk Around the World. A path way that will eventually stretch more than 3 and 1/2 miles around the Seven Seas Lagoon. Each stone in the path way cormorants the name and year of an individual guests visit or an entire family vacation at Walt Disney World.
Ladies and gentlemen we are approaching our station at the entrance to Main Street USA, gateway to the seven themed lands of the Magic Kingdom. If your standing please hold on to the hand rails and stay clear of the doors until the monorail stops completely and the doors open. Ladies and gentleman this is the Magic Kingdom monorail station. On behalf of the cast of the Walt Disney World Resort we'd like to welcome you to the Magic Kingdom. Ladies and gentlemen please collect your belongings and watch your head and step. Please assist small children by the hand. Once again we hope you enjoy the Magic Kingdom.
As you board please move across your car to make room for everyone and kindly offer available seating those needing special assistance. If your standing please hold on to the hand rails and stay clear of the automatic doors, they will be closing in a moment. Thank you.
