Re: Monorail Expansion
It's so funny you say that because I was just reading this on a site re: the technology that is used for the monorail:

There were some issues in Las Vegas—such as having to deal with many various property owners, structures in the right-of-way, and municipal politics—that Disney would not face. So maybe Disney could hold the costs under $100 million per mile.
So... the concept of $1 million per mile sounds like it would actually be a low estimate... very very low!
