That would really suck if you had to go to the bathroom or something.

Reminds me of the video(s) of the Monorail vs Duck(s) at Disneyland.
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”
― Dr. Seuss

That was cute. I got a few weird looks when I was watching it though. I was grabbing a quick bite at Sam's Club and the monorail horn honking evidently was a little louder than I thought :lol:

Adorable. And hats off to the caring monorail pilot
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

That was neat to watch. Glad I wasn't stuck on the monorail behind it though!

Poor thing! Must have been so scared! Can't jump down, because it is too high...finally, it can't jump onto the station because there's a bunch of people...man, I'm glad I'm not a squirrel!

I hate squirrels. Is it bad that I would've stared at the controls the whole time and pretended that I didn't see it?

:shock: Pay no attention to the small bump you just felt, Disney is trying out new speed bumps on the monorail tracks...yeah, that's it...speed bumps! :shock:

Wow that is insane. I just hope an announcement was made to the passengers on all the monorails as to why they will be traveling extra slow. Seems like squirrels might be a new problem for Disney. This video was dated May 31, just a few days before my WDW squirrel encounter at DHS on June 3. Somehow one decided to run around by the Backlot Express and Darth Vader meet and greet.

Props to the monorail pilot for doing the better of the two options. Just imagine how many "upset" families would be looking for compensation from Disney had the pilot made a speed bump on the track.

I was actually shocked at a lot of comments I saw in different places about how nice or sweet the monorail driver was. Why, because they didn't run over the squirrel? Who would do that? If I somehow became aware that my monorail had run over a squirrel, I would be hysterical. I have only hit a squirrel while driving (my car, not monorail!) and I cried for a good hour because I felt so bad.

Given that, I hope that the riders were aware of the situation. For whatever reason, the monorail scares me the most out of any ride and when I get stuck on it, I get a little nervous.
