    Our family is in the early planning stages for next summer. We would like to stay at the Contemporary and were wondering if you still go through security before entering the Monorail and would we have to go through it again at Epcot?

    Hip hip hooray! I'm so glad you found your way back to planDisney today, Natalie, but I’m even more excited to hear you have another magical vacation on the horizon!

    Disney’s Contemporary Resort is the perfect place to call home during your trip. The views of Happily Ever After’s fireworks are unparalleled, and some of the best dining on property can be found on-site at Steakhouse 71 and California Grill. Plus, you can be at Magic Kingdom Park in just minutes, thanks to the walking path and short monorail commute. Your bags will be subject to security screening before you board the monorail inside Disney’s Contemporary Resort, but you will not have to go through additional screening once you exit the monorail upon arriving at EPCOT. I’ve been told by Cast Members in the past that umbrellas, power banks, and charging cords are the main culprits for being selected for a full bag search, so you might want to remove these objects from your bag ahead of walking through the detectors. Hold them out in front of you as instructed and follow all directions the Cast Members give you, so you can be well on your way to a day of fun.

    Natalie, I hope this helps you breathe a great, big, beautiful sigh of relief. Don’t hesitate to stop by again if we can be of further assistance as you plan out all of those magical vacation details. We’re all ears and happy to help!

    Stay groovy,
