    Limited Hours for Resort Monorail

    Beginning on October 6 2013, the resort monorail beam will not operate from 11am to 6pm for a few weeks. Completion date has not been given. Additional boats and buses will be available from resorts during these times.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: Limited Hours for Resort Monorail

    I'm curious too.

    They were to put in a control system that eliminated the pilot from actually driving the monorail but there for just in case reasons. I don't believe they can rework this monorail to be completely on auto pilot like MCO has.

    Or they could be working on maintanence since the puppy keeps breaking down

    Or they could be making some adjustments because of the GF DVC will Grand Open soon. They did need to close the Monorail down for some hours when initial construction began on the DVC.

    Frankly I hope they are working on its reliability, 'cause they are breaking down more and more. It is taking longer to bring them back online and guests keep getting stranded up there. While 30-60 minutes means little to Disney it does to the guests when it is their park time. I make sure before I hop a monorail these days to use the restroom first. Ever notice the smell in these puppies are well beginning to smell like puppies have been in there? Like a Chicago subway.

    And on that lovely note, the Epcot monorail went down today, again, they said at least 4 hours minimum, never did hear if it went back online or not. And people pay dearly to be on a monorail loop why?

    They are laying the cable underground for the automated control system.
