New monorail confirmed

I saw on Screamscape this morning that Bob Gurr from Disney confirmed that contracts are underway for new Monorail trains, and specifically mentioned Bombadier. So it sounds like the earlier rumors on this matter were true.

I’m relieved. Because it wasn’t terribly long ago that there was talk that they might instead shut down the Epcot line and just leave the monorail to MK. With new trains, that appears off the table.


For whatever faults WDW may have, lack of investment doesn’t appear to be one of them.

Yes…although in this case, they canceled at least one project to help offset the cost of this, so it wasn’t, it seems, originally part of their near-term plans until the now infamous door incident. That changed everything.
