    HI everyone! Is there a way of accessing the monorail at the magic kingdom without entering the gate officially? We love traveling to Epcot via monorail and are staying at the wilderness lodge and are wondering if we need the park hopper? Thank you!

    Hi, Samantha!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel with your great question!

    The monorail at Walt Disney World actually does not enter Magic Kingdom Park, the station is just outside the front entrance of the Park, so no Park ticket is needed to get on or to ride. You'll only need the Park Hopper option if you're planning on visiting more than one of the four major Theme Parks each day. If you're heading over to Epcot from Disney's Wilderness Lodge, simply take a water taxi over to the Magic Kingdom and walk up the ramp to board the monorail. Ride the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center and switch over to the Epcot monorail line.

    My family loves to ride the monorail over to Epcot too, it's such a fun, long ride! We love the part where the monorail goes inside of Epcot and you get a great view from above! We really enjoy taking advantage of all the Complimentary Resort Transportation, it's fun sightseeing from buses, monorails, and boats!

    Please let us know if we can help with any other questions you think of!

    Wishing you Pixie Dusted vacation planning!
