Disney transportation connects various theme parks for quick access and convenience of the guests. Riding in the cockpit is always a fascinating experience and one can ride in the driver compartment of the monorail to have a better view of the whole park from up above.
It is not advertised by Disney transportation but it is possible to take a ride in the front. It is an attraction unknown to the visitor. One has to just ask after arriving at the monorail stop. One may be refused if someone has already taken the chance or if rail arrives loaded. The Disney transportation staff may not allow it, as permission depends on many factors.
