We’ve been seeing more and more locations and guest offerings return to Disney World over the past few weeks, including some of our favorite dining spots like Casey’s Corner as well as the announcement that the remaining closed Disney World Resort hotels would be open by the end of this year, including Port Orleans and the two remaining All Star Resorts.
When it comes to traveling around Disney World, most transportation options have been available for some time now, but we have been waiting for news on when the EPCOT Monorail line would resume services!
It appears that the EPCOT Monorail line will return this Sunday, July 18th!
Theme park journalist Scott Gustin shared the news via Twitter, saying that the Monorail service will begin its services daily one hour before EPCOT’s park opening time and conclude one hour after EPCOT’s park closing time.
NEW: The EPCOT Monorail will officially reopen on Sunday, July 18.

The EPCOT Monorail line has not been available to guests since March 2020, when Disney World closed its parks and resorts due to the pandemic. Since then, the Magic Kingdom Monorail line has been available (albeit without the Polynesian station), but guests would need to find alternative transportation to EPCOT, like the Skyliner or the buses.
This will make it even easier for guests to travel to EPCOT, especially with the Food and Wine Festival set to kick off tomorrow, July 15th! Be sure to follow along for more of the latest news and updates from Disney World!
