New monorail schedule now in effect

Effective September 1, 2014, Walt Disney World has implemented changes to the operating schedule for its monorail system. 

Current operating hours for the three monorail lines are as follows:

  • Magic Kingdom Resorts line:  8:30am to 11:00pm (extended to midnight on hard ticket event nights)
  • Magic Kingdom Express line:  9:30am to one hour after Magic Kingdom fireworks
  • Epcot line:  9:00am to 11:00pm

Disney plans to increase bus and boat service during periods when monorail service is limited.  

No word on exactly how long this schedule will remain in place.
