Disney May Extend Monorail Route as part of Disneyland Expansion
Disney is currently working on plans to expand the Disneyland Resort. The monorail route could be extended as well to fit with the expansion. The DisneylandForward documentation was recently updated and shows a possible monorail extension.
The Orange County Register is reporting that buried in the 17,000-page Environmental Impact Report from Disney is a plan to expand the 1959 monorail route. The Disneyland monorail route would extend to a proposed 17,000-car parking garage and the Toy Story parking lot.
“In addition to an extensive network of landscaped pedestrian thoroughfares, conveyance systems will transport Disneyland Resort guests around the project.
The monorail/guest transportation systems shall move guests from the Hotel District to the Theme Park District. Future connections may also be provided to the Future Expansion Southeast District.

The “Southeast District” refers to the current Toy Story parking lot. Disney also owns land behind GardenWalk, which is an outdoor shopping district that Disneyland doesn’t own. The space is currently used for Cast Member parking but is now being proposed as a future 17,000-space parking garage.
The monorail extension would connect the theme parks to the parking lots/garages.
We’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the Disneyland Resort expansion!
