« back to Parking & Transportation
We plan on going to Epcot during day and Magic Kingdom at nite . Is monorail transportation available to bring us back to our vehicle if parked in Epcot area since it will be closing earlier that day..

Hi Brady! Thanks for the question!
Don' you just love climbing aboard that nice, clean, air-conditioned monorail at the end of a long day in the parks? It has always been a tradition for my family to enjoy that "one last ride" on the monorail before leaving for the day!
The monorail typically begins operation 1 hour before park opening and continues operation for up to 3 hours after park closing.
Now, to get back to EPCOT from the Magic Kingdom, you will have to ride the monorail from the Magic Kingdom to the Transportation and Ticket Center, get off there, walk down the Exit ramp, then back UP the ON ramp to board the monorail which runs to EPCOT.
Since you will probably be very tired at this time of day, especially after visiting TWO parks (which is lots of fun!), I have another solution to offer you: Why not park at the Transportation and Ticket Center parking lot outside the Magic Kingdom and hop on the express monorail to EPCOT from there to begin your day? Even though you are adding on a monorail ride at the beginning of your day, it will save you some time and give yourself a break at the end of the day by keeping you from having to make that extra transfer! I bet you, and your feet, will thank me for this advice!
I hope you have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World, and don't forget, "Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas"!
