  • 5/16 - The Monorail is down to just one train for the next few days

    This Morning, Monorail Purple, when leaving the Monorail Barn, had an "incident" with the Door to the barn. (aka Oops, I hit the door

    Therefore currently only Monorail Red is running on the track, and is making round trips about every 15 minutes.

    Expect the DtD Monorail station to be restricted in the morning to only Disney Hotel Guests. But that the Monorail should be open to all for the late morning, afternoon period, but with a wait.

    Hopefully the Disneyland Maintenance crew can get Purple back to being allowed to run in the next few days.

    You might think about walking instead of riding if you are showing up in the next few days...

    Details! From the post it sounds like they drove the monorail into a door that was down.

      Mono means one anyways.

      I anxiously await the days of the hi-fi stereo rail.

      And no, I will never tire of that joke.

        A CORRECTION...

        Let me share some info..


        Your information on the monorail incident is incorrect. It happened on the small straightaway over Autopia just after the sub lagoon. The canopy was removed overnight for some paintwork related to Subs. When it was replaced, it was replaced 3 inches too high. While Monorail purple was on its morning test run to test the intrusion system, it hit the canopy, doing damage to both the canopy and the monorail. It was not driver error as you insinuated in your original post.
        And let me say, accidents happen, and they are not always due to the "driver".

        Sounds like in this case, it clearly wasn't.

        And I also want to let folks know, while I got this info this afternoon, I wasn't there this morning and just was relying on what I was told by others. As sometimes happens, the bulk of the info was correct, but some of the details were incorrect.

          Oh dear, another monorail casualty.

          Anyone remember when there were three monorails running at once? Heck, before this happened I was grateful for two. We can't get Blue and Orange back from Canada or wherever the heck they are now soon enough.

          At least the accident happened because of a TLC project.

            Poor Monorail Purple. Hope she gets fixed and returns to service. It would be difficult to operate on just Monorail Red until Monorail Blue finally returns and passes its testing.

                Anybody sneak some pics of Purple's boo-boo?
                I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.
