      I would love to know the truth to this. We were there two weekends ago and were going to ride it round trip since my boyfriend has never been on it. We were told at the Tomorrowland station by the attendant that there are no more round trips allowed, and the wait at DLH was over an hour to get back on it. I would be a little torqued if that's really not the case!

        Maybe they are jsut refering to having to get off at DtD? Because I know i stopped riding due to that.

        If it a round trip still though, I'd love to ride.

          sometimes they do round trips, but when the park is busy. They will ask you to get off.

            It was one way during the construction of Finding Nemo's Submarine Voyage. Maybe it was written back then.

                In my experience the monorail is almost always closed anyway. Since they had pulled red off to work on the windows, and were only running one train (blue), they had made it one way only to make sure folks at the hotel didn't have to wait five hours to get into the park.

                I don't think the Zagat Guide was really wrong on that at all. While sometimes they do offer round trips, because of how erratic the Monorail service is, I don't think it would be wise to ever DEPEND on them making round trips. Sometimes the monorail is one way, sometimes it is limited to hotel guests only, and sometimes it is down altogether.

                EDIT: Let me also add that for the time being, while Orange is still being worked on, they only have two trains. If one train develops a mechanical problem and needs to be taken offline, that will leave them with only one train, necessitating a one way trip only operation even on moderately busy days.

                Believe it or not, I've actually seen the line for the Monorail longer than the line for Nemo for just that reason.

                  I didn't even notce that in my copy! Wow. I know on high-volume population days they will go to a 1-way trip. I have never liked how the descriptions in Zagat things are always quotes of people. It makes it hard to read.

                    When I rode it from the Tomorrowland station on the anniversary weekend I went round trip. But I rode first thing in the morning before the park was super busy.

                      Perhaps they are referring to the future when the DCA enterance gets rebuilt and the Golden Gate Bridge gets taken out.I can see the monorail going one way only then for a few months.

                        Good Point. It would be great for the Disney Image to just have guests roll on by a construction site on the scenic monorail.

                          it's temporarily one-way trips most of the time. it's still technically a round trip in that the track is the same round trip, and the trains still make a round trip, but because of their lack of working monorails but their abundance of crowds for the past year or so, they've had it so usually you can only ride one way and have to wait in line again to go back.

                          perhaps zagat's doesn't think this will change before the next edition of their guide, but it would be more correct to explain it a bit more, i think, with the word temporary, or the phrase "due to ongoing monorail refurbishments" or something.

                            i think tourists and locals alike would enjoy the opportunity to see DCA's progress. if they keep the improvements and additions and construction in the forefront of the public's minds, they'll want to go to DCA to check out what's new! i think they're doing the smart thing with all this good constrruction publicity, rather than trying to keep stuff completely on the down-low

                              If the official DL website can't get it right all the time, any book printed months prior, doesn't stand a chance at getting EVERYTHING right.

                              Give publisher a break, things can change at DL at a moments notice.
