This is an important alert for all guests that are currently staying at Walt Disney World. The monorail system is currently completely shut down with no service on any of the monorail lines. Monorail Blue was running as normal and then had to be evacuated after pieces started to fall from the monorail. The pieces fell as the monorail was leaving the Epcot station with a train full of guests. The evacuation and investigation has been in process. We have not heard reports of any injuries.
We have a photo of Monorail Blue being evacuated below. The evacuation is taking place on the turn that is right before the Epcot line approaches Disney’s Contemporary resort.
Here is a photo of a guest holding a piece that fell from Monorail Blue:
The entire monorail service is completely closed for the time being. There are no reports as to when it will re-open or when we will understand what caused the pieces to break off of Monorail Blue.
The summer is a busy time and the monorail is an extremely popular mode of transportation for so many guests. We are sure that the buses and boat transportation is more crowded right now, so it may take longer to get from place to place for guests that enjoying the theme parks today.
We will keep you posted as we learn more and this story unfolds.
