    What are the operating hours for the monorail? If i park at epcot and go to Magic Kingdom for extra disney hours can i still get back to epcot on monorail even though epcot may be closed?

    Hi Steve!

    This is a great question.  Officially, the monorail starts running one hour before park opening and runs until one hour after park closing.  However, it's been my recent experience that sometimes the monorail operates a little bit before or a little bit longer, probably based on expected crowds.  You will want to check the overall Walt Disney World Times Guide when you check-in to make your final plans.

    However, the general answer to your question is "no".  If you use the monorail to get to the Magic Kingdom for evening Extra Magic Hours and those hours extend past one hour after Epcot closed then you wouldn't be able to take the monorail to get back to Epcot.  That can be problematic if you left your car in the Epcot parking lot.  If you are just trying to get back to your Disney hotel, you could just take a bus from the Magic Kingdom.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
