Where To Travel Using The Walt Disney World Monorail System

I’ve talked before about why we love Walt Disney World transport. The Walt Disney World monorail is one of the Disney World transportation options and is a fun way to travel. We love to to travel on the monorail as often as possible.

The Walt Disney World monorail operates over three separate lines that connect Magic Kingdom to Epcot and also travels via some of the deluxe resorts on property.

The Walt Disney World Monorail is a popular way to travel when at Disney World. It’s worth noting that the monorail system can get very busy when the parks close at the end of the night. If you’re staying at one of the deluxe resorts on the resort monorail line, it may be faster to travel by another means of transport at this time of day.

There are 12 different monorails in the fleet currently at Walt Disney World, each has a different colour on it. It’s great fun when we’re standing on the platform waiting for one to arrive to guess which colour we may get.

Travelling on the Walt Disney World monorail gives you some great views across Bay Lake, and it’s a great way to tour the resorts on a day when you may not necessarily want to visit the parks.

Resort Monorail Line

The Walt Disney World resort monorail stops at Magic Kingdom, The Contemporary Resort,  Disney Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC), Polynesian Resort, The Grand Floridian before arriving back at Magic Kingdom again.

The resort monorail line is a great choice when travelling to a dining reservation at one of the resorts such as Ohana at the Polynesian, or 1900 Park Fair at Grand Floridian, or perhaps even Chef Mickeys inside the Contemporary resort.

We used the resort monorail when we experienced our Happily Ever After fireworks cruise which left from the Contemporary Resort.

Magic Kingdom Monorail Line

This monorail travels between Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation center. An example travel option for this line would be when travelling from Magic Kingdom to Epcot. You would take the Magic Kingdom monorail line to the Ticket and Transportation Center, change monorails for the Epcot monorail line and stay on board until your reach Epcot.

This is a good alternative to driving your car if you have already parked in Magic Kingdom for the day. I also love that the monorail goes through Epcot meaning you get views of the park from different aspects.

Epcot Monorail Line

This monorail travels between Epcot and the Ticket and Transportation center. An example travel option for this line would be when travelling from Epcot to The Contemporary resort. You would use the Epcot monorail line and change monorails at the Ticket and Transportation center. Boarding the resort monorail line, you would stay on board passing the Polynesian resort, Grand Floridian, Magic Kingdom before arriving at The Contemporary resort.

Why not take some time out and explore the Walt Disney World monorail system next time you visit.

    We took the monorail that goes from the Magic Kingdom car park to Magic kingdom park and my goodness was the queue long! We waited at least 20 minutes which was so frustrating when we had a FP awaiting us at the park. It was good fun when on it but I wish we’d been staying on site for all of our MK visits as it was much easier going by boat to MK from Fort Wilderness 🙂

      that is the beauty of the busses as well, they drop you off near the entrance and barely any queues like the monorails at peak times.
