Guests stuck temporarily on Disney World monorail

Sunday, December 13, 2009

A power failure stranded about 300 passengers for a couple hours aboard three monorail trains at Walt Disney World.

Bo Jones of the Reedy Creek Fire Department says no one was injured when the monorail system lost power around 1 a.m. Sunday.

Jones says firefighters used ladders to assist some visitors aboard one train "more out of customer service than as an emergency situation." Other passengers disembarked later when the trains were towed to nearby stations.

The 15-mile monorail service was restored by the time the parks opened later Sunday morning.

An electrical short disrupted the monorail service in September.
