The Highway In The Sky
A University of Disneyland Guide for Retlaw Monorail Operators


Welcome aboard the Disneyland-Alweg Monorail System. This 'Highway in the Sky" is designed to give guests an experience on the efficient fast-moving transportation of the future.

The Monorail is not only a ride on a train, but it also serves as a transportation system to carry guests to and from the Disneyland Hotel.

Your appearance, your attitude and your efficiency are all important in giving the guest a lasting impression of the Monorail.

To tell you the story behind the attraction and to better familiarize you with the operating procedure, we have prepared this manual.

Your foreman and supervisors are on the job to instruct you and supervise your work. In addition to your accepting training and direction, we would like you to ask questions whenever there is something which is not clear to you.

We hope you enjoy your experience working on the Disneyland-Alweg Monorail System.
