Snowcapped Disney Park Adds Monorail Snowplow to Combat the Weather

Hello January! Several places across the globe are experiencing snow and ice as we roll through this first month of the new year. While many of us based close to Central Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort may have a hard time thinking of snowfall affecting Disney transportation, well – this Disney Park has to think of the winter weather and find ways to combat it.

Tokyo Disney Resort is experiencing plenty of snow and ice at the moment which makes for a stunning snow-capped Disney Park. Just look at the snowfall over Tokyo’s Haunted Mansion in the video below as shared by @mickeymania1988 on Twitter:

While many of us enjoy taking a ride on Disney’s Splash Mountain to cool off, here’s a video in the tweet below that shows Tokyo’s Splash Mountain in the snow:

It would be magical however to stand before one of Disney’s castles and watch the snowfall. Here’s a video of Cinderella Castle – and no we don’t mean the one at Walt Disney World, but rather Tokyo’s Cinderella Castle which shares the same name:

But, what’s impressive is Disney’s ability to adjust as needed to the weather. @Itami9018F took to Twitter to show two photos of the Tokyo Disney Resort Monorail with an added snowplow to the front of the Disney transportation option. The tweet translates to, “Type C Yellow is the first operation with a brush!” Check out the images in the tweet below:

Such a brilliant way to adjust the Disney Monorail to keep Guests moving through the Parks and Resorts!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
