Disneyland Monorail Closes After Short Circuit
The Disneyland Monorail had to be shut down on President’s Day due to a mechanical problem. It appears that a short circuit caused one of the Monorail cars to smoke, which caused the Monorail to be shut down temporarily.
Disney crews shut off power to the Monorail system and towed the Monorail with the issue to drop off passengers and then to their repair shop. Due to the power shut off a second Monorail was stranded on the track. Guests were waiting for about 45 minutes until it was towed to the station so that guests could be dropped off. Guests who were stuck were given fastpasses and free dining vouchers.
I would gladly take that inconvenience for some free fastpasses and dining coupons. How about you?
