Just one or two windows like that would suffice. All windows shaped like that is plain silly.

What if Disney had tried to do the same thing in Paris!... I would die to see the look on French politicians' face if they had come with such a request!
Chirac even refused to shake Mickey's hand!
But I think this kind of train is quite funny!

Yes it is but the concept was orginally used for Tokyo Disneyland and is later adapted to HK.

Here is Tokyo Disneyland's monorail train

Yes, these were withdrawn around 20 years ago though. They used to be a common sight across South London suburban routes.

I really don't think amusement park lines can be counted as metros...

As for trains that are cute, I am tempted to use that word to describe the Minatomirai line in Yokohama...

It's BLUE!
