LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Some Walt Disney World guests found themselves stranded for over two hours aboard one of the monorail trains.

Orange County Fire Rescue officials were called to assist Reedy Creek Fire and Rescue on Saturday after the Yellow Monorail stopped on the track between Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom.

Jahon Pilichowski tells the Orlando Sentinel that he and other monorail passengers were headed to the Magic Kingdom from the Transportation and Ticket Center when the train stopped around 3:30 p.m.

Pilichowski says the second and third cars of the train were evacuated by a cherry picker because passengers aboard had medical issues. All other passengers were towed back to the transportation center.

No injuries were reported. Officials say a possible mechanical problem caused the stoppage.
