I think that's in ALL DVC contracts...definitely OKW and Boardwalk...and if i remember the story correctly...the reason they didn't bump it over to wilderness lodge was beyond stupid: built as a moderate and the peasants weren't paying enough for the choo choo
They have always kept that option open. the epcot expansion does make it an enticing concept...as most of the "center" property development is tightly clustered...
but the rubber always meets the road and they back down for cost.
It should go like this:
Disney gets US DOT or FLA to give grants or bonds so they can rework their bridge systems and allow for ground rail. Tie in solar power, mag lev, or some other electrical system that makes it a pilot program.
Disney install ground rail to compliment monorial and boat service.
disney eventually goes entirely to ground rail when nobody cares about monorails and boats anymore (they may not too much now...actually)
The main problem with my theory is that animal kingdom makes this plan almost impossible...huge habitats with rhinos and tigers everywhere and no really way to go through.
come to think of it...they should shut animal kingdom and knock it down...too many problems.
and you can never see the lions on the safari ride anyway.
I could see them putting a spur over to wilderness/ft wilderness...not to big of a gap to cover...
and they would be wise to put saratoga and perhaps okw on the epcot line if at all possible...saratoga is going to be a continual occupancy problem for DVC...because it was a tremendously stupid idea on a failed site.
monorail negates that - but at a steep cost.
