A few hundred guests had to be evacuated today as a Walt Disney World monorail broke down between the Contemporary Resort and the Magic Kingdom. Reedy Creek Fire & Rescue was called out Saturday around 5pm to respond to the stuck monorail. Guests were stuck for almost 2 hours while emergency crews evacuated guests.

There were no injuries reported and the cause of the breakdown looks to be a mechanical problem. Normal monorail operation resumed after the broken down monorail was towed back to the garage for service.

Stay tuned for more breaking news from Chip and Co.

Update: The monorail stopped around 3:30 p.m. according to passengers.

The second and third cars had to be evacuated by the cherry picker truck because some passengers had medical issues. The other passengers remained on the monorail and were towed back to the Transportation and Ticket Center and evacuated there. Disney cast members were waiting for them with water and ice and anything they needed.
