Work continues on the Disneyland Monorail station in the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, as the refurbishment gets closer and closer to its previously announced end date. Now that the giant green tarps covering the station have been removed, we can see that it sports a brand new look.
Disneyland Monorail Station
We recently noticed that the structure has received a fresh coat of paint, with a bright blue and silver color scheme replacing the station’s former orange and green look.
Here’s what the station looked like prior to the refurbishment.
The vivid blue stretches from the support beams on either side of the structure to the interior of the roof itself. Silver accents add a bit of contrast to the striking color profile.
The fencing around the station is still covered with semi-transparent scrim at the moment.
The entrance to the station is also blocked off with a covered metal barrier to discourage guests from entering.
During our visit to the Disneyland Resort, we saw construction crews at work on the stairs to the Monorail loading platform.
A cherry picker was also inside the fenced area, working on signage hanging from the canopy.
This support beam was also blocked off with covered metal barriers.
Scaffolding is still present along the outer right side of the structure.
Disneyland Monorail Refurbishment Ending Soon
The refurbishment of the Disneyland Monorail is scheduled to end in just over a week, on August 31. By the time it reopens, the Monorail will have been out of service for almost two months.
More a relaxing spot away from the crowds than actual transportation, the Disneyland Monorail was the first daily-operating monorail system in the Western Hemisphere when it opened in 1959. Guests can ride the rails from the Downtown Disney District and the nearby Disneyland Hotel on a grand tour of the resort including a quick ride past Disney California Adventure and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
