Say Hello to Mark VII!

There's a new addition at Disneyland, and it isn't in the form of a roller coaster or dark ride. Instead, the latest attraction to open at the park is the brand new Mark VII Red Monorail, which took its first guests for a ride July 3.

Fitting for Anaheim's notorious high temperatures, the Mark 7 is air conditioned and features blue windows, though it is unlikely that guests will be allowed to open the windows.



Were you lucky enough to be one of Mark VII's first guests, or are you preparing to ride the monorail soon? Tell me about your experience!

Finally! AC in the monorails! Looks like it might hold more passengers too...

I rode this on July 16th. The monorail wasn't working during the day (someone said it was too hot), but they brought it back out after the fireworks. The interiors glow like blacklight at night, so it is definitely a good time to ride it.

secondly there is no ac in the mark 8 monorails therefore they cannot operate with guests onboard above 85 degrees

Anon, your an idiot. WDW has only ever operated the Mark 4 and 6 DL operates the Mark 7. And of course the Mark 8 has no A/C as it doesn't even exit yet.
