    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    Also don’t carry evidence against yourself into a sheriff office.

    Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

    I tried to paste it here, it’s not working for some reason, but I came across the link on Twitter.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    That’s nice and all, but it’s more along the lines of routine maintenance rather than a full refurbishment.

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    RCES typically refers to Reedy Creek Energy Services, which is WDW’s power company and is indeed a subsidiary of the Disney Co. RCID operates the emergency services and is a public government. It isn’t “owned” by any individual or company.

    Well at least they don’t wait 30+ years!

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    That’s a cosmetic refurbishment, I was thinking of a more thorough mechanical refurbishment like they do with most attractions.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    I think the line between personal and public transportation could get very blurry. Many companies (Tesla as an example) are planning networks that cars can be placed in when not in use to be used by the public. I could see in the future if things go that way Disney implementing a fleet of their...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    I think within the next 5-10 driverless vehicles will basically fulfill the same thing that would. Who knows maybe it will eventually render all the existing WDW transportation useless.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    The ones in Vegas were installed post ADA and were built on new as well as existing beamway that was almost identical to WDW’s

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    You know thinking of some of the recent evacuations and seeing how it seems somewhat apparent that Disney isn’t getting new trains or refurbishing the existing ones it seems like it would be a good idea and relatively not hugely expensive to install emergency walkways on the track. They’re...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    I rode these a few days ago and even though during my rides the gondolas never stopped just the portions in the stations where it slowed down began to get uncomfortable very quickly. I would not want to be stuck in one of these stopped in the sun. There’s a good reason why Disney waited till...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    Also with how new the system is and that it was just installed. In my opinion with a problem like this they should have shut them all down. A few years from now when they have more experience and confidence with the system it would be a different story.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    The door issues to be fair are really more of a design problem than a maintenance issue. Although the issue is definitely amplified due to poor maintenance. The cab door is opened by pressing a button under the console that triggers the latch to release. Sometimes it’s off and doesn’t quite...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    Yes when Silver came out with the new paint job the blue seats had been replaced with silver or gray ones and the pink panels at the top of the interior had also been replaced with a silver/gray color. I just assumed that was to match the color, otherwise why change it? So I’m wondering if that...
