Disney World Monorail Will Have a Delayed Opening This Friday

Guests visiting Disney World tomorrow should be aware that the monorail system will be closed in the morning on July 14th, experiencing a delayed opening for routine maintenance. Here’s the statement from Disney:

Walt Disney World Monorail Transportation will have a delayed opening this Friday, July 14, to accommodate routine maintenance.

We anticipate that all monorail beams – EPCOT, Resorts and Express to Magic Kingdom – will be open by approximately 10am.

Guests may use our existing boat transportation to reach Magic Kingdom. We will also offer bus transportation that will stop at each location along the Resort Monorail beam: The Transportation & Ticket Center, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

During this delayed opening, we will offer direct bus service to EPCOT from Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

Typically, Disney World officially operates the monorails on the following schedule, although exact timing could change:

  • The Resort Monorail and Express Monorail begin operating 30 minutes prior to when Magic Kingdom park opens and stop one hour after Magic Kingdom park closes.
  • The EPCOT Monorail begins operating 30 minutes prior to when EPCOT opens and stops 2 hours after EPCOT closes.

The delayed opening is not related to the Florida Department of Transportation’s takeover of monorail inspections.
