WPLG reported a rumor that the Walt Disney World Monorail may be ending operation due to high maintenance and upgrade costs and that the closure of the Epcot Monorail Line is 100% necessary.
A Disney spokesperson told us that this report is incorrect and that the Walt Disney World Monorail System will not be going down.
The closure of the monorail system would be odd considering the recent investment in a new train control system.
This report came after the recent incident where a monorail train on the Epcot beam ran with a door open. Disney has stated that they have put in processes to ensure this will not happen again and has added safety signs reminding guests to not lean against the doors.
