    We are going to DisneyWorld in April and staying just outside the park near Epcot. My wife has a walking disability and I was wondering if going first to Epcot and parking then taking the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom park would save overall steps? Paul

    Actually, I don’t think it will save steps. You will have to transfer at the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) to the Magic Kingdom monorail. This requires going down the exit ramp, then proceeding up the ramp to the Magic Kingdom monorail.

    I think you should go directly to the Magic Kingdom. After parking (certainly inquire if you can drop your wife at the entrance to the TTC prior to parking), take a tram to the TTC entrance. Boarding the water launch (rather than the monorail) would save going up the monorail ramp entrance. Although the ferry entrance is a bit farther it is not uphill.

    If you have a disabled parking permit, bring it with you.

    Finally, consider renting a wheelchair or ECV. If this would allow your wife to better enjoy the Magic Kingdom, it is a great alternative to walking the park. Have a relaxing trip!
