Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

Deb Wills reports that the Walt Disney World Monorail's express and resort beams will stop operating at 9 pm on October 29th because one of the beams (located on the north side of the Magic Kingdom Bus Loop entrance) is scheduled for refurbishment.

The work should be finished by 6 am the following morning, October 30th. All watercraft and the ferry boats will be operating to provide transportation. Additional buses will also be available to the Ticket and Transportation Center.

Yay! I'm glad to hear WDW is keeping their monorail in such fine condition with maintenance being done -- unlike the monorail at Disneyland.
:coolgrin:

The Disneyland monorails were supposed to be replaced with a new version years ago, based on a recommendation by their very own experts. That didn't happen because of budget cuts.

Then they started cannibalizing parts from one their current monorails to fix the others instead of buying/creating new parts.

Now their monorail trains have broken down so much there is duct tape visible when you ride inside it -- and even worse, they are now down to only one monorail train and in the past few weeks there have been days when even that one didn't run because of the repairs it needs.

When you compare the excellent monorail system at WDW to the way it is at Disneyland, you'd think two separate companies were operating things.

Let's hope the new Disneyland president fixes this as well as a lot of the other things which were allowed to become problems there due to years of budget cuts.

:no: That's terrible!! You'd think they'd keep it up better, especially with it being the original park.

That sound you hear is Walt's dead body spinning in the freezer at Coke Corner.

The noise has been pretty bad there for several years!  If Walt were alive, he's be in a constant dizzy spell!   :hurt:
:rolleyes:
