As many of you are aware there are updates that the monorail system requires from time to time. Some of this work is set to start on January 13, 2020. They will be doing construction on the beams over by Epcot. This will affect when the Epcot Monorails will be operational. If you plan to utilize the monorail system on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays you will have to make note of the adjusted operation times. For the time being, if you are planning your trip to Epcot on these days, the monorail will only be open after 10 am. Usually, the Monorail is accessible at 8 am. Until further notice, it will retain those operating hours on days other than Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
Luckily there are multiple other options for transportation around the parks. The bus system can bring you to and from the Disney hotels or other Disney parks. The friendship ferry boats can bring you from the Epcot area hotels and Hollywood Studios. Also, the new Skyliner system can give you access to Epcot from Pop Century, Art of Animation, Caribean Beach Resort, Hollywood Studios, as well as from Disney’s New Riviera Resort. (Which if you haven’t checked out you should). Make note that these alternate routes of transportation can sometimes take longer than using the monorail system, and plan accordingly.
We will update you once the schedule change and construction are completed. Stay connected with Chip and Co for these updates, and for all the new changes coming to Epcot and the other Disney Parks and hotels.
