The Disney World Monorail is fast and effective and tons of fun. Not only does it quickly deliver you to your Disney World destination, but it can be a great way to sight-see and enjoy some Disney time for free.
It’s “Your Highway in the Sky” so “Please stand clear of the doors"; "Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas" and enjoy your adventure!
You don’t have to stay at Walt Disney World Resorts or even visit the Disney Theme Parks to enjoy their monorail systems.
It is a fun and free way to spend the day! Anyone can ride on the Disney World Monorail. You are allowed to stand during the ride as long as you hold on to the hand bars.
The air conditioned monorails can easily accommodate guests with disabilities or wheelchairs (ECV’s). If you have small children or strollers, no problem!
If you are Not staying on Disney property, and Not visiting the Disney Theme parks, but want to take a free ride on the Disney Monorails, make sure you park in either the Contemporary, the Polynesian, or the Grand Floridian resorts parking lots.
Just show the resort guards station your ID and tell them that you are visiting the resort. They will welcome you with a smile. You can park for free while visiting the Disney resorts, just park and enter the resort and follow the signs to the monorail station.
The Disney World Monorail system consists of 3 separate tracks, so plan your route ahead of time, especially if you’re on a time limit.
All 3 monorail tracks meet at the Ticket and Transportation Center; the TTC is the Hub for all Disney Monorail activity. You can get on any of the 3 monorails from the TTC.
The monorail runs one hour before Disney theme park opening time to one hour after theme park closing time. The resort monorail starts running at 7:00 am.
1. The Resort Monorail ~ this route stops 5 times ~ it stops at 3 Disney Resorts, the Magic Kingdom, and the TTC. This is a great way to easily see the Disney Contemporary resort, Disney Polynesian resort, and the Disney Grand Floridian resort. This monorail route passes through the inside of the Contemporary resort and also offers views of the Magic Kingdom.
2. The Express Monorail ~ this route is a one way express monorail to the Magic Kingdom. It only goes between the TTC and MK. Once you drive to the Magic Kingdom and Park, you can either walk or take a tram to the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC). From here you have 2 choices of transportation to get to the Magic Kingdom, the Disney Ferryboat or the Disney World Monorail (Express Monorail).
3. The Epcot Monorail ~ this route runs only between the Ticket and Transportation Center to Disney Epcot Theme Park. If you are not planning on visiting Epcot, I would recommend this monorail ride to sightsee and view Epcot.
The monorails Do Not go to Downtown Disney, the Water Parks, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, or any other resorts (except the 3 resorts mentioned above).
Some fun Disney World Monorail facts ~ don’t forget to ask the monorail Cast Members for collectable Disney transportation cards.
