LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Walt Disney World guests have been rescued after being stranded for over two hours aboard one of the monorail trains.

Several media outlets report that Orange County Fire Rescue officials were called to assist Reedy Creek Fire and Rescue on Saturday afternoon after the Yellow Monorail stopped on the track between Disney's Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom.

Passenger Jahon Pilichowski says passengers were headed to Magic Kingdom from the Transportation and Ticket Center when the train stopped around 3:30 p.m.

The second and third cars of the train were evacuated by a cherry picker because passengers aboard had medical issues. All other passengers were towed back to the transportation center and evacuated.

No injuries were reported. Officials say a possible mechanical problem caused the stoppage.
