    I heard that the monorail no longer runs during Extra Magic Hours. Is that true still or will they be running over the holidays when they have very late Extra Magic Hours? Also, will Extra Magic Hours be extended like previous years?

    Hello, Denise!

    Not to worry!

    While Walt Disney World constantly monitors Resort Transportation usage and adjusts schedules accordingly, such transportation will always be available an hour before the parks open and at least one hour after they are closed. This means that Resort Transportation will follow that schedule based on Extra Magic Hours as well, since those parks are still open during those hours. As always, if a monorail is not running for any particular reason, Resort buses and ferries remain in place in order to help Guests get to their desired location after park close.

    Extra Magic Hours are often adjusted based on factors such as holiday weekends, special park events and other elements which might bring more Guests into the Resorts and parks alike. As such, it's always a good idea to check each park's calendar, available through a link on their webpages, to see if park hours and / or Extra Magic Hours have been adjusted as the day of your arrival gets closer.
