Rumors have swirled for years that Walt Disney World would be replacing their current Monorails with new ones. Those rumors recently reached a fever pitch after several online reports confirmed new Monorails were indeed ordered. While Disney has not yet confirmed the order of new Monorails, someone close to the situation may have confirmed the news over the weekend.
Celebration, FL hosted a special Town Hall on Saturday – “Working with Walt Disney: An Evening with Disney Legend Bob Gur.” If you are not familiar with Gurr, he was tasked by Walt Disney himself to create Disneyland’s Monorail system. In addition, he also helped bring other Disney Parks classics like Autopia and the Matterhorn Bobsleds to life.
WDWInfo.com is reporting that during the Town Hall Gurr addressed the rumors about a new Monorail system for Walt Disney World. While Gurr no longer works for Disney he did suggest that contracts are already in the works with Bombardier who built the current Monorail fleet. Gurr also flat out said, “You will see (new monorails).”
The current Monorail system has been in use since 1989. To me, it makes sense that new Monorails would make their debut for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration in 2021. We will just have and wait for Disney to confirm the news now!
