Monorail system to operate on new timetable to accommodate automation work

Jun 13, 2014 in "Walt Disney World Monorail System"

The Walt Disney World Monorail system will be operating on a new timetable this summer to accommodate work taking place on the automation upgrades.

Starting June 22 2014, the monorail system will operate on a fixed schedule as follows:

  • Magic Kingdom Resort beam - 8:30am to midnight
  • Magic Kingdom Express beam - 9:30am to 11:30pm
  • Epcot beam - 9am to 11pm

The monorail system currently operates on a varying schedule according to park hours. This will change to the fixed schedule listed above.

Additional buses and watercraft will be made available to handle the additional load during the periods when the monorail is not in operation.

When complete, the new automated monorail system will provide a more efficient service with enhanced safety. Expect to see more frequent dispatch of the trains, faster switching times, and monorail arrival information.

There is no timeframe on the completion, but expect to see the new operating schedule be in place throughout the summer of 2014.
