    How are the monorails working these days? I will be traveling with my family of 4 to WDW later this month. Will we be allowed our own monorail car? How is social distancing enforced on the ferries from the transportation center.

    Hi there, Shannon!

    It’s always a delight to see you here at planDisney. Thanks for stopping by with your question for us today.

    I am happy to tell you about the precautions being taken at Walt Disney World Resort. My family and I recently returned from our trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth and I was very much impressed with how Guest and Cast Member safety was made a priority. From enhanced cleaning measures, physical distancing markers to temperature screenings and face coverings being required for all Guests ages 2 and up, my family and I felt safe throughout the entirety of our vacation.

    Shannon, based on safety requirements, Disney Monorail transportation has been running at a reduced capacity per car. The Cast Members attending the Disney Monorail will determine the number of people that are able to be seated. For us, there were never more than two parties seated in the same car and we had space between us. In between the cars, partitions have been set up for social distancing measures. You will also find social distancing markers for each family while waiting in the lines to board the Disney Monorail.  

    Social distancing is enforced similarly on the Disney Ferry. You will find markers placed six feet apart for Guests to stand with their family and friends. While I was on board, the benches on the Disney Ferry were marked unavailable for Guest safety. I loved traveling to and from Magic Kingdom Park on the ferry because it’s an open space and I felt comfortable with the social distancing markers. 

    I can’t wait for you and your family to visit Walt Disney World Resort! Should you think of any other questions for us, your pals at planDisney are all EARS!

    Have an enchanting time, Shannon!
