Matt Anderson's Take
The Walt Disney World Monorail offers guests three separate monorail lines that travel to and from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Ticket And Transportation Center (TTC), Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort (including Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort), and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (including The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa).


The main two lines of the monorail system run parallel to each other and form a loop around the Seven Seas Lagoon. These two lines connect the Magic Kingdom to the Ticket And Transportation Center. One of these lines, called the Express Monorail, travels only between those two stops and is what guests who are not staying at a monorail line hotel would use.

The other line, called the Resort Monorail, travels between those two locations as well as Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort (including Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort), and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (including The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa).


Note that guests staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort can actually use either line. Though the resort line will stop at the Polynesian, the express line will stop off at the TTC and from there the Polynesian is a short walk away. At times, the express line and short walk might be faster.


As for that third mono rail line, that is the Epcot Monorail and it travels only between the Ticket And Transportation Center and Epcot. This is a longer ride and the best way to get to Epcot if you're coming from the Magic Kingdom or staying along the Resort Monorail line. From your resort, just hop on the Resort Monorail and get off at the TTC. Switch to the Epcot Monorail and take that right to Epcot.


On the way to Epcot, the monorail will actually enter the park and give you a brief overview of the layout before coming back out and stopping at the monorail station. At night, if the timing is just right and you're on the monorail while IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is playing they may even slow or pause the monorail for a bit so you can see the show from the monorail. It's a neat experience but one that can be difficult to time.

The Walt Disney World Monorail System begins operation 30 minutes before the parks open and continues operating until one hour after the park closes.

Not really a ride but still a lot of fun and the best way to travel around.

I start every trip with a ride on the monorail. This is how I set the mood for a perfect WDW trip.

The monorail is what really sets The World apart from other Disney parks, even Disneyland. Wish they would expand the line to all of the parks.
