Disney Resort Line

The Disney Resort Line (ディズニーリゾートライン, Dizunī Rizōto Rain), officially called Dizunī Rizōto Rain-sen (ディズニーリゾートライン線, "Disney Resort Line Line"), is an automated monorail in Japan, which operates between Maihama Station and the Tokyo Disney Resort. The system is operated by the Maihama Resort Line Company, Ltd.[2], the subsidiary of The Oriental Land Company (itself controlled by another railway, the Keisei Electric Railway Company) that owns and operates the resort.

Legally speaking, the line is built as a "railway", just like ordinary rapid transits or commuter rail lines. As such, season tickets are available, and Pasmo and Suica IC cards can also be used on this line.[1] In reality, the line mostly functions as the gateway attraction of the Disney Resort, and all of the stations are located on the private property of Oriental Land.

Disney Resort Line Peach Train

The line is operated using a fleet of five unclassified 6-car "Resort Liner" monorail trains[1] built by Hitachi Rail. Each train is finished in a different colour.[3] Up to four trains operate on the loop at one time, running with a minimum headway of approximately 3 minutes.[1] Starting in 2020, the trains will be replaced with new sets featuring the same exterior colours.
