For those of you unaware, the Walt Disney World monorail is currently undergoing enhancements where they are updating the infrastructure of the system, in an attempt to make the process automated. With this enhancement process, the monorail schedules have been changing periodically over the past year. It appears that on select dates in February and March, the monorails will be running a modified way, yet again.

The monorails on the Resort and Express beams will see different stops on select dates which include: February 3-5, February 9-12, February 23-26 and March 2-5 and these updated routes will occur from from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

On these dates, the Magic Kingdom Resort Beam will have trains travel only between Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom.  (The Resort loop will not stop at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or the Transportation and Ticket Center.)  Over on the Express Beam, the trains will stop at the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and the Transportation and Ticket Center.  (The stop at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is new on these specific dates.)

For those who are looking to traveling to Epcot, Guests will have two options. They can either get on a monorail at the Magic Kingdom and take the Express Beam headed towards the Transportation and Ticket Center  and then transfer to the Epcot Beam OR if they are at a Disney resort hotel, they can take a Disney bus directly from their resort to Epcot.

Monorail service will continue to be available from all stations while work takes place and during this time period, the monorail operating hours will remain unchanged. At this time, Guests may note a difference in the way they board the trains and should allow additional travel time to make sure that they reach their destinations on time.

I’ll make sure to keep you posted on any further monorail scheduling updates.

    Hi!
    I just wanted to make sure I’m reading the information correctly! So these modified schedules will only be from 11 am – 7 pm on those dates (we will be there the week of February 23rd). So if you’re using the Monorail earlier than 11 am or later than 7 pm, the Monorail will be operating as it usually does?
    Thank you!

      That would be correct. If you are using the monorails earlier than 11:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m., the monorails will be operating as it normally would.
