    We are visiting WDW in May & are staying at the BC. On our arrival day we have a dinner reservation at Chef’s Mickey for 7pm. How long is the monorail from Epcot to Contemporary? When does the monorail stop running from the TTC to Epcot (return trip)?

    Hi, Azim!  There are a couple of ways to do the monorail from EPCOT to the Contemporary resort.  Your first option is to take the EPCOT monorail to the transportation and ticket center, then take the express monorail to the Magic Kingdom and make the 10 minute walk from the Magic Kingdom to the Contemporary.  Your other option is to take the EPCOT monorail to the transportation and ticket center, then board the resort monorail, which will then take you directly inside the Contemporary.  

    I would give yourself at least 30 minutes for transportation.  You may find yourself with a short wait for the monorail, and you want to factor in any monorail delays.  

    A good rule of thumb for how late the monorail runs is to estimate about two hours after the Magic Kingdom closes.  No worries if you miss the deadline, though.  You can take a bus from the resort to Downtown Disney and then back to the Beach Club.  You could also opt for a taxi.

    Have a wonderful time!
