Monorails have started running again at Walt Disney World


The monorails are operating once again at Walt Disney World! It’s been over two months since we’ve seen the monorail system running on Disney grounds. Even though we don’t have a reopening date scheduled for Walt Disney World yet, it appears the work crew is testing the monorails with maintenance runs to have them prepared for guests in the future.

You can check out these photos a visitor, Girl Meets Disney World, took of the monorail when it was running yesterday.

And the highway in the sky has returned!!!! So happy to see some rails out on the beams!❤️?❤️?❤️Disney transportation…

The monorail is a beloved mode of transportation on the Walt Disney World property. It’s used to transport guests at the Ticket & Transportation Center (TTC) to either Magic Kingdom or Epcot.

So far, Disney has not yet confirmed a reopening date. Universal Studios Orlando submitted their reopening plans to the Orange County Task Force with intent to open to the public on June 5th. However, the Walt Disney Company plans to submit their reopening plan next week, which means we should have a better idea of when Walt Disney World will reopen once they send it in to the Orange County Task Force.
