Passengers of a monorail at Disney were stuck on the track Sunday evening.  While, passengers said they saw lightning hit the train, Bo Jones, a spokesperson with Reedy Creek Fire and Rescue said a weather related issue caused the monorail to lose power at about 6:30 p.m.

Shortly there after, firefighters arrived to the Disney Resort Wilderness Lodge area to assist Disney.  Firefighters stood by and monitored the situation as Disney employees tried to re-energize the track.
