The Future is Now

The way the Monorail snakes through Tomorrowland has always been fascinating to me. I’m sure there are engineering reasons for its course but to me it just seems to wind around for the sake of being interesting. Often times, I haven’t been watching for it and it surprises me, emerging from some hidden location.

I particularly love this stretch of track over the rocks of the submarine lagoon. The rocks feel so alien, lending a strong sci-fi feeling to the setting (almost John Carter-esque), which, in turn, makes the Monorail feel more like a spaceship traversing the Red Planet. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, with a little imagination, the future is now.
