    Lauren from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Currently, Is the Monorail between the Grand Floridian and the Magic Kingdom in operation? Additionally, how late is the Monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center in operation?

    Hello Lauren! Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you are working out some transportation details for your December visit! Transportation planning is an important part of planning a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    The Monorail is performing the happy job of transporting Guests around the Monorail loop! This includes the line that runs from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to Magic Kingdom Park! We know that ride well as the Grand Floridian is our Disney "home away from home." I should also note that the Monorail will not stop at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort beginning on November 2, 2020 due to a planned refurbishment. The Monorail will continue service to the Ticket and Transportation Center.

    The hours of  Monorail service are typically 30 minutes prior to park opening and one hour after park closing. These hours are subject to change, so I recommend checking with the front desk at your resort. I have often found the Monorail to be running earlier than 30 minutes prior to park opening, but again check with the front desk.

    Lauren, I'm excited that you are visiting during such a magical time of the year! Mickey and Minnie are planning on giving Guests a great experience during the holiday season! Characters will be appearing around the parks in their holiday finest! When night falls, a special projection show will turn Cinderella Castle into a winter wonderland at Magic Kingdom Park! And, of course, the jolly old elf himself will be appearing at all four Disney Parks and Disney Springs! My favorite holiday experience at Disney Springs is the Christmas tree display! I love seeing the trees decorated in the themes of some of our favorite Disney characters and movies! You can also enjoy the International Festival of the Holidays at EPCOT. Here you can enjoy holiday food from around the world as well as the beautiful music that adds to the joy of the season! 

    As a holiday "gift" to all Guests, the Walt Disney World Resort is currently offering the Magic is Here vacation package which can be booked for vacations through December 25th! This special offer will result in some savings for you as you continue planning your vacation!
