LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Waiting at Walt Disney World is not uncommon, but recent park guests had to wait longer than usual because of a squirrel.
A video recorded and posted to YouTube on Monday shows a monorail train heading from the Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom moving slowly -- starting and stopping -- because a squirrel was on the track and wouldn't jump off.
The video was recorded by a park guest awaiting the train at a nearby station.
"Monorail passengers at Disney World had a 45-minute ride between stops because a squirrel got on the track and the woman driving couldn't bring herself to run it over," the YouTube poster said. " They made progress a few feet at a time, honking at the squirrel to continue further down the track."
The video shows the squirrel finally entering the train station and eventually jumping off the track, bringing a round of applause from the awaiting guests.

Disney said the delay did not trigger its monorail alert system because all the trains kept moving moving and there was no danger to any employees or guests.
