    Hi, we are planning on doing some monorail resort hopping. Are we able to still access the monorail from Magic Kingdom on evenings when the park closes early for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party without an event ticket? Thank you

    Hey Howdy Hey Amy and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about resort hopping during your holiday later this year. Resort hopping is one of my family's favorite activities and we typically plan to do this at least once on any vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. I will be happy to give you more information on the details. 

    When utilizing Resort Transportation in Walt Disney World, the Walt Disney World Monorail is my top mode of transportation. This highway in the sky will take you from Magic Kingdom to all of the Disney Resort Collection hotels on the loop. When accessing the monorail from Magic Kingdom, the queue to board the monorail is outside of the parks. Guests will have full access to the monorail when it is running even during special ticketed events in Magic Kingdom. You will still be able to hop to any of the resorts using the monorail during the party hours. 

    Amy, since you will be doing some resort hopping during your upcoming holiday, the big event celebration of the Halloween season will be Magic Kingdom but so many of the resorts get in on the celebration as well. Many locations throughout the park will have specialty desserts and snacks specifically celebrating Halloween. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news about food and snack options you may want to experience. Oh and one more tip, if you visit Disney's Polynesian Village Resort close to fireworks time, grab a dessert and a spot on the beach for a spectacular view of the fireworks. The music is even piped in so you can be part of the show!

    I hope you are enjoying the planning of your holiday later this year. If you have any further questions, please feel free to stop back and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
