    New Monorail Wrap?

    Monorail black is being taped-off, like others before her, prep work for Monorail wraps.

    Rumor: Will Be for May's movie release of Iron Man 3.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Personally, I'm getting tired of these moving billboards. The balloons were bad, but at least it kind of fit the theme of the park. Tron-o-rails? Nothing in the park was Tron.

    I don't mind the wrap of a single monorail at a time, with a break in-between. If they went farther and wrapped more or all I'd be annoyed. The actual stationary billboards for TV shows at DHS actually bug me more. I see enough of that when I am approaching Chicago.

    That bit does annoy me, too. I'm not a fan of a single show on ABC. Seeing the billboards just angers me more.

    They can decorate them all as Oscar Meyer wieners as long as they can keep them running,

    Yeah...

    The only problem I have with the wraps is how hard they make it to see out of the windows.

    I remember riding the Tron-orail into EPCOT, and hardly being able to see a thing.

    Not a deal breaker by any means, but mildly annoying.

    Good point about the windows. I'm sure they are like those sports team window decals people put in the middle of their rear window. They are fairly "see-throughable."

    Agreed that it's not a deal breaker. I wanted to ride the Avengers wrapped one when it was running but not bad enough to wait for it when we were there.

    Oh, we didn't necessarily ride the Tron one by choice. It just happened to be what pulled into the station at the time.

    Once you're inside it's just a plain 'ol monorail. With a bad view.

    Lots of guests are getting to see the wrap today. She is on the resort loop and the express has been down for quite a while so everyone is getting to see it pass multiple times as they wait for the resort loop monorails.

    Orange towed away.
