A noted train enthusiast, Walt Disney built his very first railroad in his backyard. The Carolwood Pacific Railroad, a 1/8-scale train, debuted in 1950 and featured a custom-built, steam powered locomotive that encircled his property.

Delighted with his miniature backyard railroad, Walt decided to share his love of trains with the whole world. The result was the Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad, a favorite of Guests since the park opened in 1955.

Today, railroads exist at every Disney park around the globe.

IDK if anything ever happened with Paul MCCartney, but this looks suspicious…



The Disneyland Monorail was the first transportation system of its kind in America. It was based on a system built by the ALWEG company and discovered by Walt Disney while traveling in Germany. The monorail first appeared in Disneyland Park in 1959 with its “Googie” architecture, a space age look that was enormously popular during the 1950s.

The current version of the Disneyland Monorail combines the sleek styling of the 1959 classic with new technologies and subtle design changes, bringing a retro-futuristic look and contemporary feel to the timeless Disneyland icon.
