Take the MONORAIL! But don't just be like cattle and herd up to the train...make your way to the very front and ASK an attendant if you can ride in the very front! Sometimes you might have to wait for a train or two to pass, but four people can ride up front in the nose with the driver. The driver will also give little ones their own "Monorail driver's license." It's a great photo op and you'll feel very special riding up here.
Save the boat ride for the late evening. It's refreshing to be outside riding on a boat before you have to get back into your car. It's also calming and less confining then the monorail...and they won't let people ride up front in the monorail at super busy times - like at closing!
