Monorail Monday: Disney’s Highway in the Sky Pictures

By Cory Disbrow on May 14th, 2012   |    Posted in:  Disney Photo Spotlight   |    2 Comments

Hello, and welcome to a fresh week of content here at Disney Photography Blog! For today’s post, I thought we could join in with the Flickr crowd and celebrate Monorail Monday. For those that checked out the site this weekend and read our first installment of the DPB Weekly Photography Roundup, you read about flickr user DugJax. Doug started a tradition on flickr called Monorail Monday, each Monday members of the Disney photography community on flickr will post a monorail photo from a Disney park.

For many Disney fans, the monorail is a favorite form of transportation when visiting Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort. Whether using it to get to the Magic Kingdom, riding it as an attraction that traverses almost the entire resort at Disneyland, or enjoying the majestic views of Epcot from it, the monorail has a special place in all of our hearts.

We thought it would be fun to start the week off with our own version of Monorail Monday here on the Disney Photography Blog. To do so, here is a selection of monorail photos from Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Enjoy these photos of the “Highway in the Sky” and post your own monorail photo in our Disney Photography Forum or by adding them to our group on flickr.

Without further ado…

Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas.

Nothing better than seeing a monorail glide through Future World at Epcot

What makes a Monorail photo at Epcot even better? Taking it during the Flower & Garden Festival!

    I have never been to Disneyland and have not seen many photos. The monorail at Disneyland is awesome looking! I wish we could get those at WDW. It would look great seeing that ride through Epcot!
