Monorail Blue leaving the Magic Kingdom station

The Walt Disney World Monorail System is a 14.7-mile monorail system that operates at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It began operation on October 1, 1971, and is the largest of the three Disney theme park monorail systems around the world, and consists of three lines.

Lines

Express

The Express line provides express service between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Magic Kingdom. It shares the same route as the Resort line, but travels counterclockwise on the outside track.

Stations

Resort

The Resort line is a round-trip line that services the Magic Kingdom and resorts in the surrounding area. It shares the same route as the Express line, but travels clockwise on the inside track.

Stations

Epcot

The Epcot line consists of an entirely separate route than the other two lines, traveling south from the TTC to Epcot. This line opened on October 1, 1982.

Stations

  • Transportation and Ticket Center
  • Epcot

Spur Line

The Spur Line is not a revenue line, and is instead used to access the monorail barn, which is housed in a two-story building behind Fantasyland. The first floor serves as the enginehouse for the Walt Disney World Railroad.

During construction, this line was intended as a spur line to serve Disney's Persian Resort, which never came to fruition. Early drawings showed that the line would have split off again past the Persian Resort and have gone through Tomorrowland, which would have been against Walt Disney's wishes to keep the monorail out of the Magic Kingdom.

Future Expansion

At this time, there are no plans to expand the monorail system, mainly due to the prohibitive costs, an issue demonstrated by the overbudget Las Vegas Monorail.

Trains

The Walt Disney World Monorail System has utilized two different train models since its opening in 1971:
