Walt Disney World Monorail System
#1
It's no secret that I'm a fan of monorails, and some of the more unusual transportation technologies, in general.  When traveling, I always make sure to set aside time to explore the systems in the areas I'll be visiting.

I was on business in Florida this past week solo, and so decided to put together a little video of one of my favourite systems, the Walt Disney World Monorail System.





Of note, this system transports some 150 000 people a day over 25 km of track, and services a complex the size of the city of Kitchener.
