I think this is the right thing to do. Sure, it will be disappointing to some in the short term, but like a PP said, those who have never ridden up front won't know what they're missing. I have been to WDW many, many times and have never ridden up front on the monorail. Yet it has not been a tragedy in my life at all.

The OP comes off rather insensitive to the CMs in my opinion.

Amonorailpilot,

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your emotions on this. The only reason I opened this thread was because I am here at the World now, and asked yesterday to ride up front and was politely told by a very kind older gentleman at the Epcot station that WDW was no longer doing that. I looked at my 6 year old son and said "That's OK buddy, be happy you got to do it last year. It's still the monorail, c'mon let's go!"

My son wasn't hurt emotionally and I didn't feel the joy get sucked out of him like some here suggest. I am truly glad that we had the experience, but out of all of the experiences we have had the past few days, that would not have been at the top of our list.

Please let me apologize for the insensitivity of guests out there that seem to have no heart or feelings at all. There are those of us who respect your dedication to our enjoyment and we thank you for it.

I disagree. I think the OP doesn't know... or didn't know... what we hear every day. Some of the things are simply unimaginable until you hear them.

If the people who make jokes to our faces would go away and leave the parks and resorts to the rest of you... I would be highly in favor of getting you back up front.

Some of HIS behavior? Did you read the same conversation post that i did? amonorailpilot's behavior was far better than mine would have been. Mine might have cost me my job. Personally I think his behavior was stellar considering the guest.

Exactly, like he said cast members are human too. Just cause people spend a fortune their doesnt give them the right to act like a horses rear end.

But some people are going always to be like that regardless. I remember back in late Sept 2001, my next door neighbors at the time were complaining about how the baseball games were canceled because of that "9/11 thing" that happened

I agree with the previous posters that this CM's behaviour is not out of line at all. it sounds like he has remained polite and consistent with very, very rude, and sometimes cruel, guests.

amonorailpilot,

I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. I can't imagine how difficult that must have been for everyone who works in the monorails area. Please accept my apologies for those unbelievably insensitive guests that choose to make light or harrass you about the tragic death of Austin. I can't understand why some people would do something like that and be so insensitive. My prayers are with you and all your coworkers as well as Austinn's family that the Lord will give you comfort and peace.

Me too. And I find the OP's position on this very rude as well. Loss of one life is 'minimal'? Sorry, no.

If enough time goes by without anyone coming up and making comments, it is possible that there may be a turn toward bringing you back into the cabs.

Even my horse's rear end would show more class and sensibility that the fools amonorailpilot had to deal with.

amonorailpilot -

I'm a former CM and I posted earlier to support the decision to not let guests ride in the cabs.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Eeyore's Butterfly is correct, that CMs are family and it is a family you never leave. The 1st time I rode the monorail after the accident I cried walking up to the platform and I didn't know Austin. I was with a few former and current CMs and everyone was affected.

There have been disgusting hurtful posts on this thread. It is really sad how entitled we, as a society, have become.

Take care of each other, monorail pilots. See you Saturday night.
