We like to ride the monorail between the parks to save time.We will ride over to Animal Kingdom or Epcot from Disney.Its much easier to get around this way rather than driving from park to park.

We love the monorail. Always brings back great memories of when our kids were little and we were pushing a double stroller on/off.

We took this from MK to AK, too bad there is not more to connect to other parks but I am sure they didn't expect Disney to be so big when they first build this. Easy way to got to Epcot also instead of bus.

Riding the monorail is always enjoyable. Standing in line and waiting not so much, but you'll enjoy the ride once you get aboard. And you know once you get aboard you're on your way to the Magic Kingdom - or Epcot if that's your destination.

Who doesn't love riding the monorail?! It's a great way to get around Disney with great views along the way. You can stand or sit, either way it's a ride all on it's own. You could tour Disney just by riding the monorail and resort...More

What a great way to travel to some of Disney's parks - the system is quick and gives you some overview of what you are currently passing on the rail. If you have some small travelers have them check with the conductors at the stations...More

The monorail always seems like a ride of it's own. It is a great way to get from the magic kingdom to EPCOT, or just going to the resorts on the line. They really have an efficient way of doing bag check now too that...More

It might need updating but you have to love the monorail. It still creates such excited every time it passes over - particularly in Epcot. And is a great way to get between the TTC, Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Tip from the TTC. The resort...More

The Disney monorail is magic and brilliant and adds to the whole Disney experience. I don't know why monorails didn't take off like they were supposed to, because they instantly make whatever place you're using them in seem futuristic. In Seattle they have a monorail...More

The starting time depends on whether you were staying on property or not. We were just there and on property. We were able to take the monorail before those that were pulling into the parking lot. I think we jumped on the... More

You can ride the ferry but can not enter the park without a ticket. You could take the ferry to the monorail and then monorail to EPCOT or other monorail destinations, but you always need a ticket to enter any parks.
