Once again Uncle Walt’s Insider is months ahead of the official news.

Regular readers of this website (both of you) know that they are much more informed than the average Disney fan. This continues to be true, as other Disney-related websites are only now reporting on news that Uncle Walt’s Insider covered in detail several months ago.

Replacing an aging monorail fleet

As is being reported by slower news sites now, the Walt Disney World Resort is taking steps to replace their aging fleet of Mark VI monorails. Even though our competition is only now getting to this story, they still do not have the details we reported that the new monorail cars may be convertible (pictured at right) or may even use stealth technology to be completely transparent (pictured below left).

Uncle Walt’s can also confirm that whatever the final design of the new monorail trains, Disney is firmly committed to passenger and squirrel safety.
