This is FACTUALLY INCORRECT. People CANNOT pay to have the "monorail, period" because it is not ALWAYS WORKING, period. This is NOT the first time that the monorail has been closed. It closes several times a year. If guests' expectation is that the monorail is guaranteed to be working while they're at WDW, then they are WRONG, because it is not always working. They are expecting something (a "perfect" monorail experience) that Disney has NEVER given. EVER.

BTW, the Epcot monorail was closed yesterday. "Technical issues": http://www.wdwmagic.com/transportati...cal-issues.htm

You'll notice that there's no mention of Disney compensating anybody for the lack of a monorail. Instead, they're adding extra buses. Pretty much like they're doing for the resort line.

I've never stayed at the Poly, but it's the one resort I'd most like to stay at sometime. With the DVC coming to the Poly, I'd buy there if I could afford it, and the monorail is ONE of the reasons. I'd pay MORE to stay at the Poly than at WL (my other favorite resorts) BECAUSE of the monorail - even though it doesn't always work. One of the reasons I like the Poly (as others have said) is that you can walk to the TTC & catch the Resort, Express, or Epcot monorails from there, or take the ferry to MK. So, if one (or more) of the monorails is down, you have other transportation options. If you really think about it, I'm paying extra for BOTH the monorail AND its backup transportation! Weird? Perhaps. But it's simply a fact.

The monorail is great, but it doesn't always work. I'm sorry you cannot understand this, but I feel that I've explained it every way that I can. If you think Disney is going to pay you when the monorail is down... well, as one of my colleagues always says, "Get used to disappointment."
