Walt Disney World's new gondola transportation system, Disney Skyliner, remains closed today following an incident late Saturday night at the Riviera station.

Cast Members at the Epcot station say they expect the Skyliner to be closed through at least Tuesday, although no decision on a reopening date has yet been made.

Signage at the station suggests guests use other modes of transport, including the walkway, Friendship boats and busses.

Perhaps not, but in the case of the Riveria station, unless WDW wants to keep bringing the line to a full stop, his point stands as just slowing way down may not be enough to accommodate not someone having to get up and out of a wheelchair, but still the entire loading process can be slow for any party traveling with a wheelchair.

Wasn't he aware of the wheelchair loading procedure? Seems like he wasn't.

It appears that Bob Gurr is not a big fan of the Skyliner:

Yep, back in the sixties there was the ever popular, snicker inducing, hysterically funny question.. is that a boy or a girl? It is actually much more relevant today because back then it was just referring to the length of hair. Damn long haired hippy's! They all turned into bald hippy's.

Don't know why people have this mental condition that requires them to constantly attack newer generations, but I suppose generations before us said the same of us.

I was looking for the link that would reveal that to be an Onion such luck. Oh well, yet another basic aspect of life that millenials need someone else to do for them.

Also prosecutors trying vehicular crimes prefer to use the terms collision or crash. Criminal defense attorneys, on the other hand, love calling them accidents.

Well, it could be argued that there'd be less manure on the streets than there is today. :joyfull:

There's an app for that ;) And carriage horses wear poop bags... but I just wanted to use the joke :D

Especially if you like manure-filled streets.

I just passed under it and it’s stopped. Maybe temporary?
