    We will be staying at the Disney Beach Resort. Is it possible to park hop from Epcot to the Magic Kingdom by using the Monorail?

    Hi Donna,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I love a stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort! The seaside resort theme is quaint and charming, and there is so much to do with the other resorts nearby around Crescent Lake.

    It sounds like you already know that Disney's Beach Club Resort is extremely close to Epcot - close enough to walk! The answer is yes, you can take the monorail from Epcot to Magic Kingdom.

    There are a couple of considerations for making this journey. First, if you enter Epcot from Disney's Beach Club, you will be doing so from the International Gateway entrance. To get to the monorail, you will need to walk through Epcot and out of the main entrance of Epcot. This is a bit of a walk, and it means that you need entrance to Epcot to do so. If you have included the park hopper option on your theme park ticket, this is no problem - you will be able to enter both Magic Kingdom and Epcot on the same day. If you do not have the park hopper option on your ticket, you cannot enter both theme parks in one day.

    Also, be aware that to go from Epcot to Magic Kingdom on the monorail, you will have to transfer monorails at the Transportation and Ticket Center. This is not a big issue, I just want to be sure that you know you will need to transfer monorails to make this trip.

    If either of these considerations are problematic for you or your traveling party, Donna, you can take a bus from Disney's Beach Club Resort to Magic Kingdom.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you! Please do write back if you have any further questions, Donna.
