  • monorail or walk from Disneyland Hotel?

    Getting to the park in the morning...would you say walk from the Disneyland Hotel or take the monorail. We are a get there before the park opens family if that makes a difference...

    Thanks!

    Both are fun. My kids like to take the Monorail. But I don't think there is anything quite like walking down Main Street in the morning. The early morning sights and sounds on Main Street are some of my DL favorites.

      I agree with TL67, walking through the tunnel onto Main Street early in the morning is the way to go. Plus if you get there before opening there are lots of characters out on Main Street, and they still frequently do the rope drop which is fun.

        Monorail for us. We like the feeling of jumping right in.

          We like walking in the gate, especially on our first day. We use the monorail now and then just because the kids like to ride it occasionally.

            If you ride the Monorail, get there early as the platform fills up with early entry guests. Also, I'd ask how many Monorails are running in the morning, if the answer is one....walk, unless you want to wait for 45 minutes to catch a train.

                Honestly I would say the first day to walk and go through the maingate...Theres nothing like walking through those gates, seeing the huge floral mickey and train pulling into the station with all the sights sounds and smells of Disneylands atmosphere...

                The rest of your stay do the monorail....Just keep in mind that sometimes there are problems with the Monorail (wont be done with its testing before the park opens, etc..) So to ask the ticket takers...Also there will only be 1 monorail running until Nov 1st so your wait will be 2x long.....When you DO take the monorail for EE, grab a coffee and a bagel and arive atleast 20 minutes early

                  We just got back from our first stay at DLH & we took the Monorail in & it didn't "feel" right because as others have said you miss walking in the front gate. We did enjoy taking it at the end of the evening or to go back to hotel during the day.

                    When I visited about 2 weeks ago, the monorail wasn't running during the weekdays. Walking may be your only option during slow periods.

                      I love walking through DTD in the early morning. It is so quiet, the music isn't on yet. Often there is a bit of mist in the air. It makes the morning truly magical.

                        I say, run..then jog, then march, then walk!!!!
                        The monorail should be reserved for later when you need a cocktail!

                          I'm a walker - I like to walk through the main gate and tunnel. We will take the monorail later in the day if we want to go back to the hotel or ESPN Zone or something like that.

                            I'd walk and wait for the rope drop. Take the monorail back, your feet will thank you later.
