We Sure DO Love OUR Monorail, Don’t We?!

Oh, yes, we do.  Just take a look at yesterday’s results!

I won’t ask you to look back, but Walt Disney World’s monorail won this “competition” back in 2013 as well.  In fact, back then, it was victorious in a runaway landslide fashion!

New Bus and Monorail Red

Of course, our beloved, colorful “train in the sky” still ran out to an early and insurmountable lead yesterday.  Really, the result was never in doubt.

Having said that, Disney’s naval flotilla took its best shot at toppling the monorail off its perch.  The three watercraft options provided in yesterday’s poll finished in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places.

It all amounts to this … Disney’s most unique method of cruising through “The Kingdom” is still the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Transportation!

Be sure to come back tomorrow, my friends!  The poll to “elect” our favorite Deluxe resort kicks off first-thing Monday morning!  Cheers!  And, have a great Sunday!

A Contemporary Moment!

Sometimes a picture is worth a 1,000 words, or, in this case, a million bucks!  It’s simple.  You just have to be in the right place … at the right time!

Take this great shot, for example.  In this instance, the “prize” goes out to our son.  What a fantastic picture!  Great photography!

As we cruised past Disney’s Contemporary Resort, he caught both the hotel and an unexpected special guest appearance by “our” beloved monorail!

It put me to thought.  I’m always finding new ways to capture Disney’s modes of transportation on “film”.  Whether it be buses, boats, or “trains”, they all make for great, colorful pictures.

So … what is our favorite form of WDW transportation?  Well, a little more than two years ago, I ran a poll very similar to the one below.  I think it’s long past time for a repeat.

Are you like me?  Do you love the buses?  Yes, I’m in the vast minority, it seems, but I do love those Disney buses.  But, then again, I adore the monorail.

How about you?  Which one of these is your favorite form of WDW transportation?

In the group below, you can vote for THREE options.  In the end, today’s top vote-getter will be “crowned” as “king”!  Cheers, my friends!  VOTE!

“!Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas”

Landslide.  Runaway.  No contest.  Call it what you want, but we sure do love our monorail!

Monorail @ the Poly

I’m sitting here this morning, sipping coffee from my favorite cup, and marveling at the overwhelming “beat-down” our beloved monorail laid on the rest of the field on its way to being named the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Transportation.

Monorail Coffee

Wow!  66.67% of the vote in its group in the 1st Round.  A stunning 72.13% of the vote in the finale – 88 of 122 votes!!  The poor buses and boats never had a chance!

What better way to celebrate than with this?  Click the link and enjoy!

In the meantime, “Please stand clear of my coffee!”  Or, as the cup says, “!Por favor manténgase alejado de mi café”.

Have a great Saturday, everyone!

What’s Your Favorite WDW Transportation?

Good morning, everyone!

As we voted our way through Round 1 yesterday, I received a Tweet from @davemcb1897. That’s Dave McBride – the owner and webmaster of JamboEveryone.com. He said, ‘I would think this is a layup for the monorail.’

Well, if you go by Round 1’s results, I think he might be right on target. The monorail trounced the competition in Group #2. My only thought, however, is that a lot of us figured Haunted Mansion for a ‘shoe-in’ winner of the Magic Kingdom poll last week too. In other words, it isn’t over until it’s over. I Tweeted back to Dave, “Might be the MK ferry makes a run, though.” We’ll see.  The only surprise for me in Round 1 was that …

What’s Your Favorite WDW Transportation?

We had a fun week last week when we ran the Magic Kingdom poll, so I thought we could head into the weekend with something light – a short and easy poll.  I have always wondered this … what is our favorite form of WDW transportation?

Are you like me?  Do you love the buses?  Yes, I’m in the vast minority, it seems, but I do love those Disney buses.  Yet again, I adore …
