I'm hoping one of you train or transportation enthusiasts knows the answer to this because I haven't been able to find any details anywhere. How high off the ground are the people mover and monorail tracks? I know that the monorail varies with landscape but I'm particularly interested in its height around the Epcot loop. Also does anyone know if there is any sort of minimum legal height requirement to prevent dumb people from trying to jump up and climb the things?
At one point there were plans to run a people mover through the Communicore. It seems a bit weird just to do a loop around the plaza but with the monorail beams where they are I don't see how they could get out to any of the pavilions. Maybe the people mover plans were scrapped after the Communicore buildings were designed but before the monorail loop was added. That's the only thing I can think of to explain why the Communicore buildings are built to hold a people mover track but the monorail track prevents it from being able to go anywhere. If anyone has more info I'd appreciate it greatly.
