MIAMI (CBSMiami) — A Walt Disney World monorail’s door broke off Tuesday near the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa after a guest in a motorized scooter ran into it, park authorities said.
The damage to the train stranded hundreds of park visitors, causing multi-hour delays.
An English tourist going by the name of Russ, tweeted about the incident:
@WaltDisneyWorld @WaltDisneyCo no monorail to take us to the park meant that literally thousands were left loitering at the entrance in the #Florida heat. Minimal staff, no direction and no apologies.
Day is off to a bad start and 2 hours of our trip lost. #wasteofmoney pic.twitter.com/FV1HUwHtmJ

No injuries were reported.
The monorail was put back in service by Tuesday afternoon.
