Open/Close: Opens and closes with the park. Open during Magic Mornings.
Wait Times: Wait times are widely variable throughout the day. After the initial rush in the morning, the wait at the Downtown Disney station is generally no more than two trains but periodic surges in riders (or delays in trains) can quickly bump this up a couple trains. When the monorail is operating normally (that is, making a loop rather than going back and forth) passengers arriving from Disneyland are not required to disembark so the amount of space available on each train is variable. All passengers are required to exit at Tomorrowland station so each train can always take a full load creating the situation that a longer line in Tomorrowland frequently moves faster than a shorter line at the Downtown Disney station. The Tomorrowland station also has a separate line giving priority to guests of the Disneyland hotels and in the morning rush the boarding at the Downtown Disney station may be limited to those guests.
Length of Ride: 15 minutes round trip, about 5 minutes one way.
Single Rider: No
Queue Description: At Downtown Disney the queue is on a raised platform next to Rainforest Cafe. In Tomorrowland the smaller platform rises above the submarine lagoon and Autopia and during peak periods extends down around the lagoon. Both stations are covered.
Health Restriction: None
Ride Access: The queues at both stations are wheelchair accessible though you will first need to use an elevator to get to the platform.
Wheelchair Transfer: One car on each monorail is built to accommodate wheelchairs and ECVs, a cast member can direct you to the correct one. The floor of the monorail is several inches higher than the floor of the platform so be sure to ask for the ramp that is available for entering and exiting the monorail. The pilot's cabin at the front of the monorail is not wheelchair or ECV accessible.
Service Animals: Yes
Audio: Pre-recorded "tour-guide" audio plays during the trip.
Weight and Size Issues: Should be none. Since standing is not allowed (unlike the Walt Disney World monorail) crowding is not much of an issue.
