    I almost always ask for the front of the Monorail, one trip we were in the front 8 times!

    I have sat in the front once with my father, the driver was very nice. He asked us alot of questions about our vacation so far. Great Experience

    Question Re: monorail

    Does anyone know if WDW is allowing guests to ride up front with the Monorail Pilot once again?

    Last I heard they still aren't. I'm soooo crossing my fingers that changes before our trip in Sept.

    After 30+ years, only 1 fatality...I'll take my chances. I'm safer there than driving to work every morning!

    We will be returning in September also and like you, I am hoping that guests will be allowed once again.
    Your right, it's safer in the Monorail than on your commute to work!

    I rode up front for the first time this past April. It was so much fun. It was early evening and it was starting to get dark. The kids got a monorail pilot card.

    Re: monorail

    Last weekend there was a lady who asked (I overheard) and they aren't currently allowing guests up front.

    I would venture to guess it would be quite a while before they'd allow it again. It's still too fresh in people's memories.

    You cant do it any more because of the crash. They dont think it is safe.
