The dividers erected on the Walt Disney World Monorails several months ago for social distancing measures have now been altered due to issues with a fire suppression system in the ceiling.
We noticed circular cut-outs in the dividers when we rode the Monorail this morning.
A Cast Member told us that the divider had to be altered to make way for the fire suppression system built into the ceiling.
Though this looks like a screw, it actually emits a fire retardant mist in case of a fire. The divider was partially blocking the emitter.
It seems Disney didn’t consider the fire suppression system fully when the dividers were added six months ago, but we’re grateful that this safety feature has now been fixed, likely after inspection.
Because the cutouts are so high up, this also shouldn’t cause significant issues with social distancing either.
