Disney Implements New Monorail Safety Rules
Posted: 9:12 am EDT July 16, 2009
Updated: 1:48 pm EDT July 16, 2009

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Monorail drivers at Walt Disney World have some new procedures to follow. Sources have told Eyewitness News that the theme park has made some safety changes in the wake of the crash that killed 21-year-old pilot Austin Wuennenberg.

Disney will only confirm it has 'supplemented' its safety procedures when it comes to track switches.

However, a former monorail pilot with friends still in the department told Eyewitness News those changes include not allowing passengers in the front cabin with the pilot or letting pilots drive the trains in reverse while on a track switch. Also, a coordinator must now be in the tower at all times.

They have guests sitting on both the front and rear cars at DL as of last week, still. Maybe they don't have the same issue with track switching, or it is done differently.
