    Monorails: They way they are or decorated?

    With the removal of the tron overlay on the coral monorail i started to think about the way disney decorates the outsides of their monorail. They seem to decorate the monorails with the theme of that year or something new that has come out. Like the tron wrap, the balloons on the windows orthe year of a million dreams monorails or when they put stitch on them for the open of stitch great escape or when the put those circle logos of what was new in the park during happiest celebration on earth.

    It got me thinking about if i like the simple decor or if i just like the monorail being just the monorail with no added decor. I decided that disney just needs to leave the monorail alone it is glory without the added stuff to it. So i was wondering how everyone else felt about the matter.

    I don't mind simple add-ons here and there but I really really don't like the full wraps!!!!

    I'd just prefer the simple plain monorails. The ads on the buses are annoying enough.

    Re: Monorails: They way they are or decorated?

    I like the occasional simple decor but not on every single monorail and not every for every event. Like i liked the stitch decor (because stitch is a favorite charater of mine) but i was not a big fan of the mickey ear balloons. and i kinda liked the year of a million year nose jobs but it on only one or two monorails was fine just not on every single one

    Re: Monorails: They way they are or decorated?

    I have a mixed opinion over this one. I thought the Tronorails were really fun to look at and were a bit of a novelty, but it's not something I would want to see on EVERY visit. The occasional over-lay on the odd monorail is fine, but as long it's not overdone and used to promote EVERY things that Disney does/releases.

    I don't mind either way but I do have one rule, I refuse to ride monorail teal. I know Disney likes to be eco-friendly but I don't think they should have built it from salvaged parts from the accident in which that young man died. It may just be me being weird but I just don't agree with them doing that.

    Even more reason to ride it, I'd say. Plus, I'm not going to willingly let a monorail go by and wait another 20 minutes at the end of the night when I'm exhausted and just want to get home.

    I ride monorail teal because teal is one of my favorite colors!! Yes it is sad how teal came to be but Disney needed another monorail and if thats what they have to do then by all means do it.

    I voted for keeping them as-is, but the occasional small scale overlay is ok with me.
