Walt Disney World Updates The Monorail Narration for 2012

After Walt Disney World debuted The Avengers themed Monorail, Disney has updated the monorail narrations on all of the monorail lines rounding the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and resort lines in Florida.

The new narrator is notably less energetic than some of the previous transit hosts, but it certainly does it's job of informing passengers about what they’re seeing as they glide across the “highway in the sky.”  Thanks to the fine folks over at you can take a listen to the full NEW narration from the Transportation and Ticket Center to the Magic Kingdom and back via the (audio-only) YouTube video below, they were even kind enough to cut the non-narrative parts out.

The Walt Disney World monorail system has featured many different narrations and narrators over its 40+ years in operation, beginning with Jack Wagner in the early ’70s.  Wagner’s famous “Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas.” line can still be heard as the automatic doors close on each of the monorails, but the rest of the narration is now very simple and rather subdued.
