Still hope to get some word from her manager tomorrow.
Wonderful!! Thanks for sharing!!

I also read a post elsewhere online earlier this evening noting that there is a bulletin posted in the TTC that states that the monorail will be operating on a limited basis starting today until the 5th of May. So that's Sunday.

From what others have posted you can get other drinks, including soda, in the pineapple shells, but you will pay a premium for it.

Well, I could splurge for one Then I could share with my nieces, they'd probably think that was fun (ages 2, 4) or at least enjoy the yumminess. Having said that I will probably need to put some more money away for that, cause I probably wouldn't get away with buying just one I just have to find a spork--right?!

They don't have a general request feature online. Just call Disney reservations and put your request on that way. I've alwasy reqeusted this way and always received our request (Tokelau 1st floor ). Good luck and have fun!

Here's the text from the link:
Walt Disney World Resort will again be under “planned maintenance and nearby construction” starting on April 30, 2012 which means that the operating schedule will have to be adjusted. Guests need to make sure to pay attention if you’re planning on visiting Disney World any time soon because it could upset your daily plans. A notice was placed in the rooms of resort guests to advise them.

Beginning on Monday, April 30, Monorail service on the Magic Kingdom Resort and Express beams will be temporarily suspended during non-peak times, between 11:30 AM and 6:00 PM.

This is the same time frame that the monorails had been shut down back in the beginning of March. Construction and maintenance was planned then for a few weeks, but it was completed quickly which got it back up and running within about a week.

As of now, Disney expects the Monorail work to be complete in early May. Weather permitting, of course.

During this maintenance time, buses and watercraft (where applicable) such as smaller boats and ferries will be available to transport guests where they may need to go on the monorail tracks. If resort guests are heading to Epcot, that monorail will still be fully operational via the Transportation & Ticket Center. Buses can be taken to the TTC where guests may transfer to a monorail.

While the resort monorail maintenance interruption is an inconvenience, staying at the Poly is still a godsend. If at MK, you can take a boat back to the Poly or if needing to roll a stroller or wheelchair, just take the ferry to the TTC and walk back to your room. To Epcot, it has always been easier to just walk over to the TTC to take the direct monorail. I do feel sorry for the folks staying at CR and GF as it does make it a bigger inconvenience for them....especially getting to/from Epcot.
