Sunday, July 13, 2014 | Posted: 10:00 p.m. Sunday, July 13, 2014 Disney World monorail shut down by weather-related power outage; passengers evacuated Sponsored Links LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. About 120 passengers were evacuated from a Walt Disney World monorail Sunday evening due to a weather-related power outage. The monorail stopped on a stretch of track between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Disneys Wilderness Lodge. Workers spent about 30 minutes trying to restart the monorail to return it to a station to unload the passengers, officials said. Once those measures proved unsuccessful, the Reedy Creek Fire Department spent an hour evacuating the passengers from the monorail using a special stairwell device and other vehicles equipped with platforms, Fire Chief Bo Jones said. No one was injured, and there were no medical emergencies. Once lowered to the ground, the passengers were escorted to busses provided by Disney.

Boarding this franchise for the first time are Ed Harris as Blade Ranger, the helicopter leader of the Piston Peak Air Attack Base; Julie Bowen as Lil’ Dipper, a gifted air tanker with a fan-crush on Dusty; and Wes Studi as a folklore-savvy helicopter named Windlifter. Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller sweeten the tale as old married RVs Winnie and Harvey. “Fire & Rescue” doesn’t do narrative loop-de-loops exactly. The storytelling is conventional in almost every sense: from its gruff leader with a past to its striving park superintendent who siphons funds from the firefighting budget for renovations of the Grand Fusel Lodge. What’s wild are the images. Dusty and Skipper’s swooping and arcing flight over the countryside is a preview of what’s to come. When Dusty heads to Piston Peaks National Park, the wooded terrain is altogether different and just as beckoning. Here, 3-D doesn’t just subtract from parents’ wallets but adds to the immersive ride. The animation effects veer toward the astonishing. A fave: a magenta cloud of retardant enveloping the screen.
