Walt Disney World Monorail Transportation

The Walt Disney World Monorail System has three separate tracks (or ‘beams’ as they are known) that travel throughout Walt Disney World Resort, although two of the them run side-by-side around the Seven Seas Lagoon – one with trains running clockwise and the other anti-clockwise.

The first beam is the Resort Monorail – this runs clockwise around the Seven Seas Lagoon, making the following stops:

Magic Kingdom theme park
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
• Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
• Transportation and Ticket Center

The second is the express service between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Magic Kingdom theme park – follows the same route as above but in reverse (i.e. anti-clockwise) and only stops at the Ticket and Transportation Center and Magic Kingdom.

The third monorail route is an express service between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Epcot theme park.
