Fans of the Mouse have been clamoring for new monorails for some time. Rumors have come and gone that a new fleet was on the way but no new monorails have arrived. This week the rumor mill was kicked into high gear when it was confirmed by Disney legend Bob Gurr (who worked on the original designs for both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World monorails.)
“There is a contract… contracts are underway. You will see (new monorails). If everything works right, it will be the same company, Bombardier.”
