    We have 9pm reservations at California Grill on our night at Epcot (which closes at 10pm). We want to ride the monorail to dinner, but wondering if it will take us back to Epcot after the park is closed? We are staying at a non-Disney resort.

    Hello, Holly! It is so great to talk to you today. 

    Holly, I love nothing more than dinner at the California Grill. The spectacular food (I recommend the Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli) accompanied by stunning views of Cinderella Castle really puts me in a magical state of mind. 

    Currently, the monorail is not operating from EPCOT, so if you want to take advantage of Walt Disney World Resort transportation you would need to hop on a bus from EPCOT to Disney's Contemporary Resort. Since bus service to the parks typically stops about 30 minutes before park closing, I would recommend that you drive your car from EPCOT to your reservation at California Grill. 

    Holly, because you have a dining reservation, there will be no charge to park at Disney's Contemporary Resort. 

    I hope that this helped, Holly. Please come back here to planDisney if we can help as you plan your fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    See you real soon!
