June 14 - 1959 - The Disneyland Monorail Opens
Walt Disney introduced the Disneyland Monorail as a template for the future of large scale transportation. Now there are only three in the United States, with two being located in Disney parks. There was nothing wrong with the monorail, it's just that no city officials wanted to build one in their municipalities. The Disneyland Monorail is today a symbol of the future that could have been.
