The Disneyland website describes the Monorail as "the first transportation system of its kind in America." It provides transportation for theme park attendees between the Tomorrowland Station and the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.

The attraction takes visitors on a trip over various Disneyland locations and attractions and travels through the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

The current version of the Monorail combines design elements from the 1959 classic version with modern designs. The attraction’s page describes it as a "timeless Disney icon."

Due to the ride being powered by a 600-volt DC power source, it doesn’t emit any direct exhaust or pollutants.
