Disney World guest films monorail traveling with door open


A recent video from a Walt Disney World guest traveling on the monorail shows how important it is to "stand clear of the doors."

While riding to Epcot on Jan. 6, guests noticed that the door began to open while the tram was moving. A Disney spokesperson confirmed the incident to News 13 and said the monorail was removed from service once castmembers noticed the issue.

"We regret that this occurred," said the spokesperson. "Safety is our top priority."

No one was injured during the incident.

I need a drink. @disney, guys, you gotta get on this, what if somebody had fallen?
