Monorail evacuated at Walt Disney World due to possible lightning strike


Earlier this afternoon the gold monorail on the Epcot line near the Wilderness Lodge had to be evacuated at the Walt Disney World due to a possible lightning strike.  Disney initially tried to restart the monorail but was unsuccessful, so all 120 passengers were evacuated from the monorail.

All guests were safely evacuated by 8PM from the stalled monorail.  Disney confirmed there was severe weather in the area but is still unclear at this time whether a lightning strike caused the outage.
