Another day, another Disney monorail breakdown.

For the second time this week, another of Disney’s aging monorails has broken down and left Guests stranded. This time it was Monorail Silver.

We can’t say that the Guests were left “high and dry” as Silver was also leaking from the heavy rain.

Monorail Silver lost power while on that line heading to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Guests were left stranded above the EPCOT parking lot, not far from the EPCOT Monorail Station. Power was eventually restored to the Monorail, however it still required the Monorail line maintenance vehicle to tow it in.

DisTwitter, of course, is not surprised.

Nor are the Disney Guests who were stranded particularly happy. One Guest complained that Disney Cast Members remained silent as they disembarked.


While it’s clear that Disney’s Mark VI Monorails are in dire need of replacement, Disney keeps spending money elsewhere. The Skyliner, new luxury resort hotels, and now the controversial Disney Genie+ app.

Disney World’s current monorails first began operation in 1989, and are years past their recommended lifespan.

Trust us. People notice.

It doesn’t take much searching to see that Disney’s failing monorail system has been making a lot of negative headlines for the company in the past couple of years.

Stay tuned for more news as we hear it.
