[QUOTE=Scottish.Mickey;870521]I was thinking last night;
wouldn’ it be cool if the AKL had a different form of transportation to the AK? :happy:
I’ve never stayed there and don’t know about the transportation or how far or close it is to the AK but it sure would be neat!
“AKL = AK Express!” :AK:[/QUOTE]
There’s pretty much no other way to do it. The AKL is land locked, there’s no water near it that goes anywhere. Building an exclusive monorail is just fiscally out of the question, plus, possibly disruptive of animal habitat in AK, depending on route. So, it’s buses. Besides, if anything, there would be an extension of the Epcot monorail line to DHS before anything else is built. I doubt Disney would even bother with a ground level train, and if they build an elevated train, it would have to be electric, not steam or diesel, so you’re still back to a monorail as the most effective alternate. The only other choice would be a people mover like the TTA in Tomorrowland and as originally suggested by Walt himself in the Epcot promotional film.
