    We are going to disney and will stay at Contemporary resort on then end of August 2022. Will monorail be running or closed? Please advice. Thank you

    Greetings, Yovanka, and a warm welcome back to planDisney, thank you!

    The “public transport of the future” the Walt Disney World® Monorail Transportation was clearly ahead of its time, and I am happy to report that this mode of transport is running, with perhaps a few modified routes and services, please check with a Disney Cast Member during your stay. During my recent visit, the Monorail, on my way to Magic Kingdom Park breezed by the three iconic Disney Resort hotels on the Monorail line - Disney’s Contemporary, Disney’s Polynesian Village, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort hotels - I thoroughly enjoyed my rides, especially to stop for shopping and dining along the way!

    I am so happy to hEAR that you will be a Guest at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Yovanka, how very lucky you are to be able to stay at such a beautiful and historic Resort hotel! I hope during your visit you can stroll through to browse at the 90-foot high mural created by  Disney Legend Mary Blair - there is quite the backstory regarding the implementation of a five-legged goat - a tribute to the Native American spirit, 'believing that nothing man creates can ever be perfect, for we are in fact, only human,' thus Mary Blair added an intentional “mistake” with her five-legged goat.

    Of great interest to date with many Guests, is the massive A-Frame architectural style constructed by Walt Disney Imagineering, which was designed to accept pre-constructed, modular Guest Rooms, that were lifted into place by a crane. You simply must make a point of dining at the newest venue here called, Steakhouse 71 named for the year it first opened. The menu here is family-friendly with many nods to Walt Disney with dishes inspired by some of his favorite meals.

    Pro Tips - ensure you link your reservations to your Disney account to begin your Disney Park Pass selections with valid theme park admission; use Direct-To-Room Service to head straight to your iconic Guest Room to prepare for your fun ahead!

    It was my pleasure assisting you today, Yovanka, I look forward to helping you again soon!
