The Walt Disney World monorail system is currently in the process of being updated with an automated operating system. To accommodate for this work, monorail service will be adjusted for the summer. Both Magic Kingdom loops, as well as the Epcot loop, will see service impacted.
Work will begin on June 22 and the monorail line will see a fixed schedule all summer long. Here is a look at the temporary monorail schedule and when you’ll be able to catch a ride on the monorail.
- Magic Kingdom Resort Beam: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 midnight
- Magic Kingdom Express Beam: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m.
- Epcot Beam: 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.
During this time, additional watercraft and buses will be available to transport guests.
When completed, the new automated system will allow for faster switching trains on and off the beams, a more frequent dispatch of trains, a more consistent running monorail, and monorail arrival information.
There is currently no time table for when the monorails will return to their normal operation.
