I spent a day recently at Epcot's annual Flower and Garden Festival. I wanted to capture the beauty and color of the festival. Above, I used four photographs stitched together to create a panoramic. As much as I like this photo and it does show how colorful Epcot gets, it is missing an important element which would make you think "That's Epcot" immediately. In the photos below, I waited and captured it.

Monorail Yellow was a bit shaded and I dodged (lightened) it a little to pull out its color. After taking this photo, I walked over to the path between the Imagination pavilion and World Showcase to get a front lighted photo of the next monorail. Notice the difference in the exposures.

Monorails come through the Epcot loop more or less on a regular basis. A lot depends on how busy the parks are as to how often you see a monorail moving overhead as you walk around Future World. On this day, these two monorails ran ten minutes apart.

Doug:

Great Scott!!! Those are beautiful photos!

In the second photo when you waited for the monorail to pass by you timed it just perfectly. The end of the monorail's nose in the background smack dab in the middle of the pyramid (forgive me, it's been too long since I've been to WDW) as not to block it.

Scott replies: LOL Glad you enjoyed the photos. To be honest, I took a series of photos as the monorail moved and that one was the best. If I was to plan on it again, I would go earlier in the day so the sunlight would be coming from the right side of the frame. Then the monorails would be in better light.
