    Re: Monorail Cockpits

    Remember when you could ask to visit the flight deck on a commercial airliner and not be locked up?

    Guests are definitely not allowed in the front of the monorail, and there is no plan to allow it at this point.

    I remember when I could take my Swiss Army knife onto a plane with me. I'd hand it to security, they'd look at it and then give it back to me and then I'd board. Besides the obvious tragedy, 9-11 changed a lot of things for the worse by lessening our freedoms.

    Liberty is something you should never, ever water down. It is far too precious. Having to accept the occasional (and ultra, ultra-rare) threat of terrorism is not and has never been an adequate excuse for the loss of liberties, no matter what western governments may say.

    But yeah...

    From when I was a little kid...yea, I do...now you can get taken down by an air marshall by for just touching the cockpit door

    Just remember...all the security that goes on, whether it be an airplane or a Disney World monorail...is only designed to prevent the amateur terrorist from trying to pull off something stupid

    Re: Monorail Cockpits

    I thought the Monorail ban was purely the result of the accident?

    It was.

    Aside from the obvious physical safety issues that came to light, there was also concern that guests would distract drivers and also ask them inappropriate questions regarding the accident. I believe there was an agreement with the pilots that the pilots had to agree if/when WDW decided they were ready to allow guests again.

    As mentioned above, it was. My bad for the pathetic wording...not thinking through as I typed. But what I said was mainly geared at airplanes. However...I wouldn't have been surprised somewhere in the future that they ended it because of "security" reasons...just a thought, though

    That's very understanding on Disney's part.

    That sounds more like a decree than an agreement.
