Monorails at the Walt Disney World Resort
Even though we can no longer get the coveted front car seat, we enjoy riding the monorails when we visit the Walt Disney World Resort. And, we even try to see or ride all the monorails.
Sometimes the monorails get special decorations on the outside. For example, if you were to travel to Walt Disney World right now, the “Express” monorails to the Magic Kingdom would have Halloween decorations on the outside. We have also seen the EPCOT monorails decorated to advertise Tron Legacy, which premiered last spring. Sometimes the monorails have decorations to match Disney’s current theme.
A second line, which also serves the Magic Kingdom is the “Resort Line.” The monorails that travel the Resort Line make 5 stops around the Seven Seas Lagoon: Magic Kingdom, Contemporary Resort, TTC, Polynesian Resort, and the Grand Floridian—in that order.
The third monorail line is the EPCOT line. Monorails that serve the EPCOT line travel back and forth between the TTC (Ticket and Transportation Center) and EPCOT—no other stops. Traveling to EPCOT via monorail is special as the monorail glides over the gates and around Future World before stopping at the station just outside the gates of EPCOT. So, you get to see the park before getting off the monorail. Cool!
Here are the monorail colors so you can check them off as you travel the Walt Disney World Resort:
Red, Blue, Lime, Gold, Green, Coral, Yellow, Orange, Silver, Black, and Teal.
Did you see or ride all the monorails?
