The Best Thing I Love about Disney is…The Monorail Spiel


To me, there are no happier words spoken on Disney property than “Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas.”

It may seem odd but when I hear the unmistakable warning to “Please stand clear of the doors” when riding the monorail, I know I’m on home on Disney property. Over the years, the monorail spiel has been updated and new voices have replaced old favorites. With one exception. The “Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas” portion of the track, narrated by Jack Wagner, remains the original.

“Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas” is one of the best things I love about Disney.
