Judging by the 3 day box office for The Incredibles, they would have better off spending the money on a Solo Wrap.

Estimated $180 mil in 3 days vs $192 mil in 24 days for SoLow

This one actually looks somewhat decent. Probably one of the better looking monorail wraps that we've had in a while. Monsters U back in 2013 wasn't too bad.

The monorail is iconic. I hate when they put a wrap on it. It's like the castle birthday cake as far as I'm concerned.
When do we get a look, at the new monorail? The wait is killing me“ i looked up bombard in canada eh” and no dice eh”

Thought it was a little lacking when I saw it last week. The avengers wrap they did in the past was better in my opinion.

Not bad. Subtle enough (in my opinion at least) to not disrupt the classic look too much. But has enough of the Incredibles stuff to be exciting for kids and advertise the movie.

I would've gone crazy for these as a kid. And now as an adult it isn't too tacky to make me mad.

One of the better Monorail overlays in my opinion.

I'm neither here nor there about it (or any other monorail wraps for that matter). This one in particular doesn't look bad, and from a marketing perspective it makes sense. As much as I personally like to hold onto the nostalgia of the monorail in its purest form ;) I have to remind myself that Disney is a for-profit company, and marketing well is what they do. Also, they have me figured out. They know that if my "concern" is nostalgia, they've already got me hooked regardless of what they put on the monorails.

Just out of curiosity, how big of an effect does in park marketting have? It feels like to me, people who are spending thousands of dollars to go to a Disney park are probably also gonna already be seeing most Disney movies. It's not like they are advertising their smaller movies with Monorail wraps and parties in Tomorrowland. Incredibles 2 is probably the biggest animated release to come out of Disney this year.

Are these really just for advertising or is it because kids like to see characters from the new movies in the parks or what is the reason?

OK, I'm starting to feel like I can understand the sticks-in-the-mud around here. Orange is my favorite, the most beautiful train of them all. So I'm really REALLY hoping this is gone by October when I get to visit. But that will likely be right around DVD release? Blech!
