PHOTOS: New Plastic Dividers Installed on Walt Disney World Monorails

The Walt Disney World Monorail system has seen a number of changes since the reopening of the parks and resorts, starting out with vinyl dividers in between cabins (which ultimately had to be modified due to a potential fire hazard), and now the addition of plastic dividers to form smaller isolated sections for guests to sit in.

As we’ve seen on the various attractions where they’ve been installed, these dividers are meant to increase capacity and reduce wait times for guests. When loading, we noticed double the amount of numbered queue markers in the loading area.

Cabins are divided into four sections, each capable of sitting about two adults. We were seated with two other parties in the cabin, a party of two and a party of four. The party of two took up one cubicle, and the party of four took up two cubicles.

The sections are made of a hard plastic material retrofitted to the existing handrails and seats using numerous zip ties.

Here’s what it looked like from within our section.

While the dividers are a visually drastic change, we appreciate that the font used for the numbered section stickers matches the signage elsewhere inside the monorail.

For now, we’ve only noticed these dividers on the Express monorail line, with Monorail Green and Monorail Black each halfway outfitted with these new socially-distanced sections. What do you think of these additions to Walt Disney World’s highway in the sky? Let us know in the comments!

Good Lord. They’re never going to take any of this crap down either. When are they going to decide that these stupid plastic walls impede evacuation traffic in case of an emergency on there?

they look terrible. I had no problem sitting with another family across from me. There was also not a long wait for a monorail any time we went. Maybe 10 minutes or a little longer and we go to the magic kingdom one to two days a week……..I think it looks like we are going to be put in little boxes, some look like thats all you see is plastic . maybe they look a little differennt in person, but maybe the bus might be the better way to go.

I guess I just don’t understand…..if everyone is screened and temperatures taken before hand why do all of these things need to be done on the inside of the park experience/rides…..technically everyone has been cleared to enter…..am I wrong…..my family goes every year and just my choice but until things are back to normal and the experience matches the price everyone pays….then we’ll go back

I think it’s great… temperature screenings are only one small thing. Many carry the virus without ever having a temperature so any added precaution is welcome. I do agree the price doesn’t match the experience anymore.
