    A terrible series of events. Due to this incident Disney will no longer allow guest to sit with the capitain. At least some people got to do it and I'm glad I did.

    I missed a couple opportunities to ride up front on our last two trips in 2007, it was just me and my husband so we thought it would be better to let people with kids ask to go up front. I was lucky enough to get to do it when I was very little, but I don't really remember it.

    It appears that Austin tried to put his monorail in reverse to avoid the collision but he ran out of time. A valiant effort nonetheless. If any good can come out of this, obviously safety procedures will be tightened up and extra precautions will be taken in order to improve the system. May he rest in peace.
