    Exclamation Worrisome Monorail Track Defect

    As accurately documented by the Google Earth™ family of satellites, there appears to be a serious integrity problem with the Monorail track (both beams) just west of the Magic Kingdom station, and beside the canal used for the Electrical Water Pageant barges.

    (I have not edited this image in any way, so it must be true!)



    If I were you, I'd get off the Monorail 1 stop early and walk.
    Don't say I didn't warn you!!!
