Disney Monorail Transportation

Running since 1971 when the park opened, the monorail was envisioned to be the public transportation of the future.

The projection was right, as the two original monorail lines are still open and a third was opened in 1982 in conjunction with Epcot’s opening.

The trains that are running now replaced the originals in 1989 and can carry over 350 people.

Three Monorails

The three monorails that travel around Walt Disney World are free transportation to and from the Transportation and Ticket center and the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.

Also, the Resort Monorail system circles an area covering a route from the Magic Kingdom to four stops – The Contemporary Resort, The Grand Floridian, The Polynesian Resort, and the Transportation and Ticket Center.

The Epcot Monorail makes a loop from the Transportation and Ticket center to Epcot, and the Express Monorail goes from the Transportation and Ticket center to the Magic Kingdom and back.

The monorails operate from one hour before opening to one hour after closing, making these still futuristic looking trains an efficient and direct way to get from one place to another.

You can’t miss the ride through the Contemporary Resort – the monorail goes right through the middle of the hotel.

The monorail system is very well labeled, and any staff member is happy to help you find the correct monorail line for your destination.

The monorails run very consistently and you can expect to see one or two every 10 minutes.

During busy times, you may only find a place to stand on the monorail, and you are not able to bring luggage onto the trains.
