    Monorail Red opening still delayed as workers continue tests - OC Register, 5/19/08

    Sonya Smith at the Orange County Register has once again gotten Disney to go on record regarding the new Mark VII Monorail Red

    http://ocresort.freedomblogging.com/...work-properly/


    Disney Spokesman John McClintock said today that the new train is still undergoing tests and adjustments. That includes the doors and air conditioning. He said both are working, but just not yet to Disney’s satisfaction.

    McClintock said there is no date yet planned for the monorail’s public opening. When asked if the monorail might make it out for this Memorial Day weekend, he said that is “not at all likely.”

    So wait, we have standards for doors and A/C, but not CMs....

    Talk about money down the drain. Yugo's have a better track record. Maybe instead of throwing money down the toilet they could have made needed changes to Tommorowland. Wait better yet just send me the money, I'll put it togood use.

    The funny thing is - - Didn't Disney fire (or destroy the relationship with) the original builders of their Monorail because they wanted to save money? So they went this other route? Is this the same old story of short-term thinking costing them money?
