    if you wanna take the monorail at Disneyland in California but you're staying at the Disneyland hotel do you still need to make a reservation for the monorail

    Hey there, Elena!

    Welcome to planDisney! I loved seeing your question about the Disneyland Monorail because that happens to be my toddler’s favorite ride (well, it's up there with the Disneyland Railroad, Autopia, the Casey Jr Circus Train, and the King Arthur Carrousel - my little guy is all about transportation)! So, I just had to jump in and help you prep for your next magical glide into The Happiest Place On Earth.

    Since I live just around the riverbend from the Disneyland Resort, I often hop on the Disneyland Monorail as a walk-up guest from the Downtown Disney District. The best part is it’s open to all guests with a valid admission ticket and theme park reservation to the Disneyland Park, no need to make a reservation for this specific attraction. Just walk up, scan your ticket, and climb aboard!

    I hope you found this information helpful, Elena. If you think of any more planning questions or would like some more tips, please come back and visit me here.
