Disney Monorails Head to 'Tron'

As part of their marketing push for the upcoming 3D film extravaganza "Tron: Legacy" (Premiering December 17,2010), Disney's theme parks are transforming their monorails into slick, Tron-advertised trains adorned with Light-Cycles zooming from one end of the monorail to the other.

They're not so much making the monorails look like machines zipping about the blue world, but rather super-long advertisements much like the buses and transportation that get slapped with big advertising stickers. It's not much, but it makes sense -- this is the easiest way to morph Disney's transit, and it's not like they're going to paint all of the tracks the appropriate glowing blue to match, or let their patrons zoom around on speedy bikes suspended high above the ground.
I know that I'm looking forward to riding the new monorails, how about you?
Until next time..... Lorie

Looks like a fancier monorail we have here in Seattle. At least yours won't run into things and people like ours ... lol

LOVE Tron (the old school version)!!!
