Minnie Van drivers....the new bus drivers. 😂
The irony is Minnie Van drivers, bus drivers, or any other front line CM usually when they offer information like this to a guest it’s coming from them reading forums like this and other online sources. So the information has made a full circle trip.

When eventually something new is built I do hope it's like the Tokyo monorail in its internal layout as the Orlando one is awfully designed and a large amount of space is wasted. The Tokyo one isn't so sleek on the outside through but it's functional.

The only internal modifications they could make would be the seating layout. Because of how small the Mark VIs are compared to the Tokyo Disney Monorail, the walkthrough cabins cannot exist. The Tokyo ones are MUCH larger, and therefore, the floor sits ABOVE the tires, not between.

Google the Bombardier Innovia 200 monorail (not metro) and you will see what WDW will get with minor modifications.

i have a grinder lets get to work on the contemporary. even thought i know they wont do it makes sense long term to change everything to run wider and taller trains and just engineer it to still run on the smaller beam so your just changing every station. who knows could increase capacity 20% maybe lots of possibilities.

Just want to bump this by saying I’ve been riding the monorails the last two days and I have to say I am genuinely impressed as to how good they look and how well they’ve been running. Coral is spectacular and looks fantastic inside and out. Lime with Blue deltas looks great as well.

Even the ones that were refurbed initially still look great.

Credit were credit is due, good job to Disney Transportation.

Youre on the wrong site.. we only talk about things when the sky is falling!!!!!

Kidding this sounds amazing, I have never had an issue either so I was hoping it wasn't as bad as people were saying. But that's the age we live in, its too easy to tweet, post, take cell phone pics of all the bad things, but when things are great no one says anything.

Nah...we talk about the theoretical that doesn’t make sense too 🤪

My only complaint which I don’t think is an easy fix is the broken spiels and the manual announcements about not casually leaning against the doors.
