I was wondering what was in the black bag under the seats. But is there an intercom to communicate with captive passengers.

We were just raving earlier how much we enjoyed the Gondolas. I assume they will be closed for the next week to improve safety.

People are posting pictures of whatís in them. Looks very military. I saw another post that said they are putting repel floats on the water but I question that as I see no one else saying that.

It is clear Disney did not have a good plan and the communication is horrible.

For a company that values safety as much as Disney does this is completely shocking. Assuming all are evacuated safely this is by no means a worst case scenario, but some damage control will definitely have to be done.

Is the only positive that I can think of for this that the lines to ride the skyliner for the next few weeks will be shorter than I anticipated?

It is moving again but there are pictures of the zip line that they set up from the gondolas to the boats on the water for evacuating. that would have been a unique Disney experience.

This is horrible! I was already against the gondolas, but I didnít expect this to happen so soon. Those poor people! I hope that everyone is safely evacuated soon.

Never thought these were a good idea.
Never expected this bad, this soon though.

Helpful Disney packing tip: bring rope, harnesses, and learn to use a carabiner to repel, before venturing onto the skyway
