futuristic monorail

“DisneySea Transit Steamers” Scott Sherman, 1996

As we’ve previously discussed, varying forms of transportation within a park create both kinetic energy, and can help strengthen an area’s overall immersion and theme. Think of the Mark Twain docked at the end of Frontierland, or the futuristic monorails perched over Tomorrowland. In Tokyo DisneySea, the park’s waters are encircled by the DisneySea Transit Steamer Line. This simple ferry system not only helps give the impression that the park’s seas are alive and busy, but also encourages guests’ to explore and see the park from multiple perspectives. This piece, by Scott Sherman, shows off the color scheme detail on the Le Verne vessel.
