    Mark VIII Monorail Concepts (again not sure where to post)

    It's interesting how the nose cab of the two trains have very similar shapes, yet looks so different when viewed from the outside or by drawing. just pushing some numbers out there, and this is just going by the drawings and making a purely random observation,,,, the EXISTING MK vi has 20...

    Mark VIII Monorail Concepts (again not sure where to post)

    Good point! It is tough comparing the Vegas trains with the MK vi, at least I think so. Even though the Vegas trains are supposed to be based on the MK VI, I think that comparison is more to the suspension rather than coach capacity. Being wider, the vegas trains have the advantage. Guests...

    Mark VIII Monorail Concepts (again not sure where to post)

    I suppose so, but really, do you want all those people standing? I realize that the guest numbers have outgrown the monorails capacity with every MK series, but having standing guests can create a bigger problem. And remember, not everyone can raise thier arm to hold onto a handle or bar for...

    Mark VIII Monorail Concepts (again not sure where to post)

    That fold down seating is a thought, as well as the perimeter seating, HOWEVER, the MK iv and MK vi trains carry an incredible amount of guests and the Disney trains have always had ample seating, I assume for older or impaired riders. The MK vi trains were the first that actually considered...

    Mark VIII Monorail Concepts (again not sure where to post)

    I really like concepts. While I used to use them at work, I also use them for my own use when purchasing things, or making conceptual renderings. My Favorite monorail was the MK IV, I thought the MK VI too boxy, too big, and if you recall, they caused a lot of problems when they were bought...

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    I have watched for any info that could even lead to a thought of the MK-VI trains being replaced and all I find is responses, claimed to be by Disney, that state that these monorails are going no where. there was a unacknowledged comment that Disney was "talking" to some manufacturers, however...

    Fix or replace the monorail

    I believe it would be really difficult to justify getting rid of the WDW monorails as they were designed as a function of transportation for the parks. I know that legally, Disney can run the MK VI for another 20 years so perhaps the recent inquiries to manufacturers of Monorail trains could be...

    FOX deal impact on WDW

    No actors, really? As for source, there are many, any article that talks about AE shutting down brings it up.

    FOX deal impact on WDW

    ********** Everytime I went to Alien Encounter, there was a line to get in. It was very popular and in my opinion was fitting for Tomorrowland. I don't understand why if DISNEY is jumping on the IP wagon, then why did they not go with the original plan and use the Alien creature from the movie...

    FP+ vs ADR, which is more annoying/valuable?

    *********** I have actually gone OFF PROPERTY for meals as now you pretty much are locked into making reservations. What caused me to start OFF SITE dining was going to a reservation and STILL WAITING 30 MINUTES to get a table. I have found in most cases that I spent less time going OFF SITE...

    A long time Disney fan turns sour!

    ********* I too remember the park in the 70's. There was an excitement in the park, the cast members, care for guests. Park tickets were dirt cheap, but these were the times of the A thru E ticket books. The restaurant on the way to Tomorrowland had a stage that came up from the lower level...

    A long time Disney fan turns sour!

    **** *** Oh i don't know about that. Yes, we are seeing guests expectations and actions change but so is Disney. Prices are soaring, and to get even more, you are losing perks. The never expiring ticket is long gone as are other perks that used to be afforded to the guest. Fast Pass, if you...

    A long time Disney fan turns sour!

    In an Emergency, bomb threat, fire, explosion, flooding, whatever, a space must be able to be evacuated in very little time. Disney has the parks so packed with people, that this most certainly is an impossibility. So could the big crowds be a problem??? MMmmmmmmm maybe!

    Cost of Disney

    Thats interesting. When the loops 16 / 17 / 18 and 19 were pet loops, you still had access to the dog kennels at Ft Wilderness and at each of the park entrances. When DISNEY created the expensive large single kennel and closed the local kennels, things changed abruptly. IF YOU DID NOT STAY IN...

    If you hate all that is Disney?

    **** AHhhhhh... As I read this, I recall the park, ( it was only one then ) as it was before EPCOT Center was built. I remember the park from experience, not internet searching. It still had most of Walts Standards in mind, still had the Empress Lilly, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, The Mk IV...

    Cost of Disney

    -***** Yes, that is an unpopular opinion, and so is this... I might consider paying higher prices to go to WDW, and you absolutely will because of the greed, BUT THEY WOULD HAVE TO LOSE FAST PASS FIRST!

    If you hate all that is Disney?

    ***************** I think the response to the Disney Parks is generational. That is, you speak of those who have been to the parks for years, in my case, starting in 1980. The parks have changed, attractions are gone, the food has not improved and the quantity is shrinking. and it dances on...
