    Has a reopening date been announced for the EPCOT monorail beam? We have a trip in a week staying at the Contemporary and hope to avoid the bus system.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jerry! With your vacation coming up in about a week, now is a great time to familiarize yourself with all of the transportation options available to you when you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. You'll be able to choose from the bus system, water transportation, the monorail, and the Disney Skyliner, depending on where you're starting and ending your journey, so let's chat about what choices you'll have when you're staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort next week. 

    At the moment, the monorail loop that services the Resort Hotel you're staying at as well as Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Magic Kingdom Park, and the transportation and ticket center is up and running with enhanced safety and physical distancing measures in place. The monorail is not running to EPCOT at the moment, so you will need to use an alternative method of transportation which will most likely be the bus system. It is possible that this may change before your trip, so be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog this week because it will be the first place you'll hear about anything exciting happening at Walt Disney World Resort, including any potential changes to transportation offerings. 

    Have a magical day, Jerry!
