The EPCOT monorail line reopened today, once again taking guests from the Transportation and Ticket Center near Magic Kingdom to the experimental prototype community of tomorrow. We took a ride on the monorail today and got pictures of our experience.

  • After closing back in March 2020, the EPCOT Monorail beam finally resumed operations starting today, July 18.
  • EPCOT Monorail service will begin one hour before EPCOT park open and end one hour after EPCOT park close.
  • A ride on the EPCOT monorail line now provides some interesting looks at the various ongoing construction projects around the park.

  • We also got our first look at the new entrance fountain from the monorail. The fountain was revealed back in December, long after the monorail had closed.

  • Finally, we got a look at the new sign at the EPCOT monorail station.

  • With the return of EPCOT Monorail service, resorts on the monorail line will have direct bus service to EPCOT end on specific dates listed below.
  • As a reminder, Guests are required to wear face coverings while on Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails, and Disney Skyliner.
