A Tour of the New Type C Monorail at Tokyo Disney Resort


The brand new Type C monorail made its debut today at Tokyo Disney Resort. It has a lot more space and is a refreshed design from the classic monorail that we all know and love.

I woke up at the crack of dawn to head on over to the monorail station so I was able to get photos and video for you wonderful Explorers. Someone send me some coffee? Venti sugar-free vanilla with whole milk ice coffee, please. Thank you.

How does it look? Well, let me show you!

This monorail is in addition to the older monorails and also the Duffy and friends monorail. I have a comparison at the end of the post to show you what the older monorails look like (they’re still running).

What do you think of the new monorail? Let me know in those comments, just scroll down and tap away.

New vs Old Monorail

As promised here’s a side by side comparison so you’re able to see the difference. The newer Type C has more space with larger windows. The handrails are also at different lengths so it’s easier to grab for those of varying heights (that’s my guess).

    Looks bright and refreshing. I hope that soon it will be sensibly filled with happy noise. I miss visiting from Australia and hope to see TDR in the future. Thank you so much for sharing x
