Video: All You Need to Know About The Monorail at Disney World
Whether you have been to Disney World or not, you probably know about the monorail. The monorail is considered an attraction to my kids and better yet, the MAIN attraction. My husband jokes that we could ride the monorail over and over again, get our feels, and not spend the money on tickets to get into the parks. Ha, as if! Seriously though, Disney’s monorail system is pretty amazing and it definitely provides some great views on the way to Magic Kingdom or Epcot.
Where Does the Monorail Take You?
Disney’s Monorails are convenient and will make your life a bit easier when trying to get around Disney World. The monorail system Disney has in place will only travel to certain places. Keep in mind you will have to take a bus or car to most resorts and to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. The monorail system makes stops at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC), Epcot, and Magic Kingdom. It also goes to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Polynesian Resort and Disney’s Contemporary Resort (also known as the monorail resorts or Magic Kingdom Resorts). But keep in mind the same monorail will not take you to all stops. You may have to switch monorails at the transportation center, but hey that isn’t so bad. I suggest that you ask a cast member where you need to go and they will be happy to help or you can go HERE for monorail the schedule.
What Can You Bring on The Monorail?
Well, it’s pretty simple. Don’t bring anything you wouldn’t bring into the parks. You will be going through bag check right when you get off of the monorail in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. If you can’t bring it into the Parks don’t bring it onto the monorail. You will have nowhere to put your items or security will ask you to take it to a lost and found and leave it there for the day. You will be able to pick it up at the end of the day, but save yourself some trouble and just don’t bring it in the first place
The best part about the monorail I think is that you can leave your kids in the stroller while riding the monorail. Just roll the stroller onto the monorail and put the stroller in park. Then you can watch the sites go by while your sweet little one is resting in their stroller. Simple! No taking the kids out of the stroller until you get to the car or on a bus. Easy peasy!
- Make sure to look before you go for Monorail schedule changes
- During off season months, the monorails don’t run as often. It’s important to be aware and be on the lookout for changes.
- Check out the sights and take pictures. You will get some awesome views and the scenery is breathtaking. I especially recommend having your camera ready to capture a picture of your child’s first glimpse of Cinderella Castle.
