Didn`t Walt Disney envision the monorail as his main transportation system in Epcot City which was never built ?

Disney preferred the over-the-beam design of the ALWEG monorail over the hanging design of the SAFEGE (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAFEGE) and Wuppertal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuppertal_Suspension_Railway) monorails (such as the AMF monorail at the Fair) because he felt that the support superstructure blocked the view from the trains and made passengers feel that they were enclosed.
