    What is the status of the Monorail transportation system at WDW? I understand that it had been suspended in to Epcot during 2021.

    Hello Donna, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question! 

    The Monorail. Such an icon!

    Of all the Guest Resort Transportation options, probably none is more storied! Though these days I prefer the Water Transportation options, (Disney Cruise Line habits run deep, I suppose) I have fond memories from every trip I've ever taken to Walt Disney World Resort of that retro-futuristic highway in the sky! 

    I'm one of the people who actually likes waiting for the Monorail and guessing which color we'll be riding (team Monorail Orange!) and have even taken vacations where I only went to one park, but rode every mode of transportation available. I haven't done that since Disney Skyliner opened, so maybe it's about time to do it again! 

    Anyway, I checked with some of my fellow panelists who have just recently returned from their own visits to Walt Disney World Resort (Thanks Alyssa and Diana!) who were able to confirm that all lines are operational! After a bit more nerding-out on the transportation options with some Cast Members, the Epcot line has been back operating since late summer of 2021! 

    Now I always suggest checking with a Cast Member directly both just before and when you arrive for your vacation about any last-minute schedule changes that may be in-effect for transportation options. You can also keep an eye on the My Disney Experience app for updated transportation information! 

    If you felt like doing the "unofficial planDrew-approved resort transport challenge" (working title) where you take every mode of transportation available, try to check off not only the EPCOT Monorail, but the Friendship Boats, Disney Skyliner, Ferry Boats, Magic Kingdom Monorail, Water Taxi, and Bus! It may take a while, but in the process you'll see everything that Walt Disney Resort has to offer!

    I hope that helps you excited for your upcoming visit, Donna! If you have any additional questions, please come back and see us here at planDisney! Have a magical time!

    And remember... "Please Stand Clear of the Doors...Por Favor Manténgase Alejado de las Puertas..."
