Sometimes you encounter unexpected problems in Disney World that are completely out of your control.
Rain can pop up out of nowhere, rides can be closed with no explanation, or your favorite food item could be missing. Sometimes problems can pop up due to Disney transportation as well. It can be a bit unreliable or entire transportation systems can be closed unexpectedly. That’s exactly what is happening to guests trying to get to Magic Kingdom this morning — and it’s causing a big traffic jam!
The Monorail is currently down in Disney World.
We noticed the Monorail was closed as soon as we arrived at the Transportation and Ticket Center Monday morning. Both the Express and the Resort Monorail lines are down.
Cast Members were blocking the entrances to the Monorails and announced that the only way to get to Magic Kingdom is on the ferry boat — the buses are not running.
With the Labor Day crowds, this caused quite a back up! It took us over 45 minutes just to get from the TTC to the entrance of Magic Kingdom.

When we got to Magic Kingdom, the entrances to the Monorails there were also blocked off.
A Cast Member said that he thinks the Monorails will be up and running within the next few hours.
We’ll keep you updated as to when the Monorails reopen, so stay tuned to DFB for news!
