File this under reasons why I will NOT ride the monorail until there is a full scale refurbishment.
Magic Kingdom Monorails at Reduced Capacity Due to Beam Damage - TouringPlans.com Blog | TouringPlans.com BlogOvernight the monorail beams between the Grand Floridian Resort and the Magic Kingdom suffered some sort of damage that is causing monorail delays. Cast members are saying a beam joint was damaged by the extremely low temperatures. This is forcing the monorails to slow to a crawl as they cross that section of the route, reducing capacity and slowing service times. During peak periods of guest travel, this means increased waits at all stops on the Magic Kingdom Resort and Express lines. The Epcot line is running as normal.
Currently no timeline has been given for the repairs to be made and for service to return to normal.
After witnessing countless monorail outages, reduced capacity, etc, I will not be riding the MK/Resort Line monorail anytime in near future.
