For those of you unaware, the Walt Disney World monorail is currently undergoing enhancements where they are updating the infrastructure of the system, in an attempt to make the process automated. With this enhancement process, the monorail schedules have been changing periodically over the past year. It appears that on select dates in February and March, the monorails will be running a modified way, yet again.

The monorails on the Resort and Express beams will see different stops on select dates which include: February 3-5, February 9-12, February 23-26 and March 2-5 and these updated routes will occur from from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

On these dates, the Magic Kingdom Resort Beam will have trains travel only between Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom.  (The Resort loop will not stop at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or the Transportation and Ticket Center.)  Over on the Express Beam, the trains will stop at the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and the Transportation and Ticket Center.  (The stop at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is new on these specific dates.)

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: January 22, 2015

by on January 22, 2015

IMG_2409Hi, Everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Walt Disney World. This week we’ll be visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios for all the latest updates, stopping by Downtown Disney for a little food truck action, and finishing up at Magic Kingdom. Ready for some beautiful, blue Florida skies? Let’s get moving! 🙂

Early Saturday morning we set out for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I knew with the holiday weekend and awesome weather that we’d be facing a crowd. You can see from the photo that it wasn’t too crowded when we arrived, but that changed fast. Speaking of fast, check out the progress removing the hat! I can’t believe how fast it’s coming down. In the bottom right hand side of the photo you can see the actual top of the hat behind the construction wall. It’s so much bigger than it looks! Want to see what other fun stuff we found this weekend? Be sure to click to read more!

Reminder: Walt Disney World Monorail Service Impacted Starting January 21

by on January 4, 2014

Walt Disney World monorailAs a reminder for those of you who will be traveling to Walt Disney World soon: service on the Walt Disney World Monorail will be severely impacted due to scheduled maintenance starting on Tuesday, January 21. The affected loops will included both the Magic Kingdom Resort Loop and the Express Loop. These will both be unavailable for guests during non-peak hours on weekdays, from 11:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. The weekends should see no closures.

During the monorail closures, additional buses, as well as watercraft, will be available for guests to use. The work on both Magic Kingdom monorail beams is expected to last until the end of March 2014 (weather permitting, of course).

For those who wish to travel to Epcot by monorail, the Epcot’s Monorail Loop will be unaffected and will have normal operating hours.
