Default Rumor: New Fleet Of Monorails Ordered

Makes sense. That vid of the door open while in transit was pretty scary. Hope this one is true.

I'm going to believe this whether it's true or not!

This will be a welcomed upgrade at Disney world.

The fleet is old and is breaking down more every year.

After staying at BLt during spring break a week ago and waiting for the monorail a lot. I had time to look closely at them as they pulled into the station. The entire fleet looks old and tired. Like they were at a old local amusement park and not up to Disney standards. So hope this is true.

I'm with all of those who would LOVE to see this be true. I've grown increasingly weary of even using the system over the last couple of years as the reliability had declined so significantly. Wonder what the timeline would be if it comes to fruition...

YEaH!!! I so hope that is true!! I really have been afraid to ride since being stuck on it for quite a while back in 08 or 09 - can't remember which year, but...I really do not like the monorail as it is now. New ones are desperately needed.

There goes my gondola theory. I sure hope this is true. I would hope upgraded signals and software will go along with the plan as well.
