EPCOT Monorail Is Reopening This Weekend!

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.”

We’re thrilled to hear about the reopening of the EPCOT Monorail! 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. We’ll keep you posted once Disney updates their website to reflect the latest news.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
