Jack Wagner's Famous Monorail Message

Someone at work told me today that Disney has replaced or will be replacing Jack Wagner's Famous "please stand clear of the doors" message with a different voice and a different message. I didn't believe him but started to worry just the same.

Has anyone else heard this rumor?

If this ever happens.... I'll be forced into action. Hopefully there's no truth to that rumor.

Disney HAS updated the Monorail Spiel for each of its Monorail lines. A new, so far unknown voice artist provides details along your trek.

Thankfull, Jack Wagner's "Please Stand Clear of the Doors...." is intact.

kinda sounds like a more computerised and less enthusiastic/happy version of the previous voice. well done disney for yet again taking away a bit of the magic.

I'm not sure if I buy this. The recording is garbled. Judge for yourselves.

This a sad day if it is indeed true.

Jack Wagner Died in 1995 and was originally replaced in 1998 when GF opened. the new guy is something like the fourth narrator since Wagner. Except of the "Please stand clear of the doors..." portion. That is still him apparently because it is on a different sound loop fom the rest of the spiel and doesn't need to be updated.

Yep, good pick up. Typing too fast but the opening of GF was when Wagner was first replaced.

I hope not! that is the ring tone on my phone! Was real funny one night I forgot to turn it off during Bible study. The pastor knew it was me and said, " To our faithful Disney fanatic; It would be a good Idea to turn off your phone while your standing clear of the doors" It was in good fun.

I posted the new Monorail spiel in post #3 above. Jack Wagner is still present for the door warning. The rest is, in fact, new.
