**UPDATE: Disney Spokesperson says monorail was was down for 20 minutes but is back up and running now. The BLUE monorail was able to make it back to the station so there was no need for evacuations. No reports of injuries. Crews isolated the malfunctioning monorail car on the rail and appeared to be inspecting a part of the track using a lift.
Monorail BLUE is currently being evacuated after what looks like a large piece of the monorail fell off. All monorail lines are currently suspended at this time.
