Walt Disney World Evacuates Monorail Blue After Large Piece Falls Off

Credit: Disney

This is an important alert for all guests that are currently staying at Walt Disney World.  The monorail system is currently completely shut down with no service on any of the monorail lines.  Monorail Blue was running as normal and then had to be evacuated after pieces started to fall from the monorail.  The pieces fell as the monorail was leaving the Epcot station with a train full of guests.  The evacuation and investigation has been in process.  We have not heard reports of any injuries.

We have a photo of Monorail Blue being evacuated below. ¬†The evacuation is taking place on the turn that is right before the Epcot line approaches Disney’s Contemporary resort.

The entire monorail service is completely closed for the time being.  There are no reports as to when it will re-open or when we will understand what caused the pieces to break off of Monorail Blue.

The summer is a busy time and the monorail is an extremely popular mode of transportation for so many guests.  We are sure that the buses and boat transportation is more crowded right now, so it may take longer to get from place to place for guests that enjoying the theme parks today.

We will keep you posted as we learn more and this story unfolds.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
