Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?


Well-Known Member
Confirmed: Bob Iger stated this evening that the Monorail project has been delayed in order to pay for a new Maleficent float. ;)

They'd just scrap the float.

Well no but the way they want to go about this would mean they can’t just go one train at a time.
So some serious down time then? If they can't do them one at a time, then does the whole system need to go dow until the new trains are in?

This will be very interesting to see how they manage the change over. I don’t know the details of current system but I’m assuming they could shut down one line at a time. Which would still mean removing, installing new trains and changing the system (power/automation) over and testing before bringing it back online. I would assume that’s some serious down time for each line but I’m happy to see change coming sooner than expected

Go with the first part.
Hmm...but how does that impact the timeline? They'll need more time to build enough monorails to replace enough existing capacity, which could mean we'll be getting them much later than if they replaced each of them as another was completed.

Or, are you suggesting they'll build them faster in order to limit the automation downtime?
