Great news coming from Disney followers today! While we’ve heard the buzz about Walt Disney World Cast Members being asked to return to the EPCOT Monorail for service soon, we believe we have a date as to when the EPCOT Monorail will reopen for Disney guests after being closed for well over a year.
Scott Gustin, a regular Disney reporter, took to Twitter to share: “NEW: The EPCOT Monorail will officially reopen on Sunday, July 18. The EPCOT Monorail last operated in March 2020 when the parks closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Gustin continues in the Twitter thread: “As part of this change, direct bus service to EPCOT will no longer be available from these hotels (and effective dates):
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – July 25
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort – July 25
- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort – mid-August
Of course, everything is subject to change – but it sure seems like EPCOT bus service at The Polynesian ending in mid-August means Disney expects to have Polynesian monorail service back online by mid-August.”
NEW: The EPCOT Monorail will officially reopen on Sunday, July 18.

We’re looking forward to cruising to and from EPCOT to check out all the beautiful sights… including seeing a birds eye view of all the EPCOT construction in Future World.
