Every Role a Starring Role – Monorail Pilot

As most readers know, I’m a big fan of the video’s Disney puts out in regards to the Every Role A Starring Role.  They take a specific job of a cast member at Disneyland Resort and talk to them and we learn a little more about what they do each and every day to bring the Disney Magic to us, the fans.  Here is Kevin Rafferty, Jr.’s blog.

Every Role a Starring Role

This month, we celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Disneyland Monorail, which opened in 1959 as part of the first major expansion of Disneyland park that included the Matterhorn Bobsleds and the Submarine Voyage.

Walt Disney was personally intrigued by various forms of transportation and included a “highway in the sky” in his early plans for Disneyland park. Today, the Disneyland Resort is the only place in the world to experience the Disneyland Monorail Mark VII.

Mike Gibson has piloted the Disneyland Monorail for 20 years and was the first cast member to operate the orange Mark VII train. Mike explains his duties in this “Every Role a Starring Role!”

So who else want’s to pilot one of the monorails?
