I only read the 1st page and it looked like it was going south.


I had an experience with a hotel elevater in Daytona actually. I made me 100000% aware on every closing door I have ever been into to be aware they can close every time, and do not try to rush in/out for any reason.


I think it is a learning lesson of what can happen, and you will be aware for ever with it. GOOD thing no one was hurt. Accidents with automatic type doors are low, but enough that even 1/10th of 1 % is death/injury for someone and should be taken seriously.

PS I am so sorry some peeps here think this is funny.. or you are being silly for being messed up. I was messed up for weeks/months and no one was hurt. YEARS later I still remember on every elevator/auto closing bus/ect.

Thanks for the heads up!

I will be more cautious in the future. We are not used to automatic doors like these. Good idea to be aware of potential issues with their operation.

Glad that everyone was OK!!

You are correct when you say that the monorail doors usually close one at a time. However, when they malfunction and close, it's a different story. The vehicle WAS malfunctioning, which caused for the doors to suddenly close. If anyone has a youtube video of a monorail malfunctioning and sees otherwise, let me know.

Not meaning to start drama on here...was only trying to warn people again. This was on the "Iron Man" monorail. They were having problems when they were loading at the gate...they had to stop and realign with the metal gate doors.

This did really happen. Sorry I don't have a "link" to post on here, but I think it would be really low of me to post on here the seriousness of an incident like this just to stir up threads on here.

Again, it was a GREAT vacation. One of the greatest vacations we have had in Florida...so we still love Disney! I just know many people share about experiences that happen on here and wanted to share the rare situation we had.
But could you explain the disparity between your description of the girl getting in while the doors were closing, when she would be getting in from the other side at MK, and those doors don't even open until the other side is closed?

Only read first page and that was enough. It's threads like this that make me a little sick to the stomach and need to take a break from the boards. Also lose a small amount of faith in humanity.

OP sorry for the experience. Pregnancy and childbirth is scary enough without having to worry about doors potentially closing on your wife.

Yes... Now I understand the confusion.

Our doors closed...the other doors opened. Little girl entered. When the malfunction happened, they closed mk side doors too...little girl,was trying to get out but couldn't. Was crying a lot and was shook up.

You quoted me so I wanted to say that I didn't doubt you. I know that the doors used to close all at once routinely but of course if they did so now, that is definitely not right. Those monorail vehicles need to be replaced.

I know what you mean. Why are so many judgmental and attacking (many without reading or comprehending the post)?

I agree.

I just don't see how everything has to warrant a compensation?! I think i'd be more freaked over the snake in my lap. That poor kid had serious injuries from that btw. That is just my opinion.

I don't know what is wrong with people except the lack of common courtesy. They only asked for someone to say "Hey, we are sorry about what happened. Are you ok?"

I am glad that your wife and unborn child are both ok.

But the OP did not ask for any sort of compensation? They just thought that somebody should have asked if everyone was ok! And maybe reassure them that the monorail is no ok to board?

Unfortunately a woman's pregnant belly is not a solid object. Your skull is so the garage door coming down will (should) stop when it hits you.

Hmmm. If you walked sideways while exiting, would your shoulder blades be stiff enough to stop the door?

Whatever happened to chivalry? Someone should have held the door so you could exit the train.
