VIDEO: Monorail Door Opens With Guests on Board and Train in Motion at Walt Disney World, Prompting New Signage

While it remains unclear how it happened, shocking video was posted to Instagram showing a Walt Disney World Monorail on the way to Epcot with a door wide open, meaning that a guest could have easily fallen many feet out of it. Somehow, the Monorail sensors weren’t tripped and no cast member noticed it for quite some time.


I need a drink. @disney, guys, you gotta get on this, what if somebody had fallen?

The incident may have been the one that prompted the “Do Not Lean” signage we we shared yesterday, now applied above every single Monorail door at Walt Disney World.
