My last few visits to MK have been complicated by Monorail downtime. Early arrival for restaurant breakfast reservations get near impossible when the monorail breaks down and the ferry hasn't started running yet. On one of the trips, masses of us got sent to the bus area off the ticket center parking when the monorail went down, but no one told them to send the buses up, so everyone was stranded until the ferry started. And the ferry is really insufficient to handle the arrival and departure crowds when the monorail is down. As you said, this issue has been going on for too long and it really impacts a visit to MK. Major bad show.
