Two breaking news items from Walt Disney World in the news this morning.
Early this morning there was a report of smoke on a monorail. Operation was stopped and the fire department called in. No fire or damage could be found. It looks like that monorail was sent back to the shop and the rest of the fleet returned to normal operations.
Smoke from a possible electrical short is not all that unusual on WDW’s aging monorail fleet. But neither is it common. Still, I don’t see this as a sign of concern.
The other story coming out of WDW this morning is quite a bit sadder. A 16 year old guest staying at the Port Orleans Riverside resort was found dead in his room this morning by a member of his family. Sheriff investigators are on the scene of this tragedy.
The thoughts of everyone at The Disney Blog go out to their family. No one wants this to happen, especially on vacation.
