We go to Disney World every single day, and well, let’s just say we’ve seen some things.

Waiting at the Monorail station

One thing we’ve seen is EPCOT completely change into something we almost don’t recognize now (and we mean that in the best way possible). We’ve also seen baby animals born at Disney World, as well as Disney ducks being treated like the royalty they are (maybe Donald is right and ducks are #1). We’ve also seen some cringey things, but more importantly, we’ve heard some cringey things. So let’s talk about one of the places, the Monorail, in Disney World where we’ve heard things that make us shake our heads.

The Monorail is one of Disney World’s FREE transportation options that can take you to and from several parks and Disney World hotels. We would argue that it’s one of the few Disney World attractions that you can ride for free without needing a park ticket. However, here are some questionable things we’ve heard while riding the Monorail.

Which stop is Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom?

If you’ve never been to Disney World and haven’t done your research, you’ve probably heard of the Monorail and may think that it goes EVERYWHERE in Disney World. However, it doesn’t. But there have been times when people have been on the Monorail and have asked which stop is Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, or a hotel that’s not on the Monorail loop.


The Monorail only goes to EPCOT and Magic Kingdom plus the following hotels: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It also makes stops at the Transportation and Ticket Center. If you’re not going to any of those destinations, you’re going to have to take other transportation, like buses or the Skyliner.

We Got Stuck On the Disney World Monorail With NO Power Here’s What Happened

People on the wrong Monorail

Okay, we get it. If you haven’t studied the Monorail routes, you might not understand that there is more than one Monorail. In fact, there are three separate lines. The Resort Monorail goes to Magic Kingdom, Grand Floridian, Polynesian, and Contemporary. The EPCOT Monorail originates at the Transportation and Ticket Center and goes to EPCOT. The Express Monorail also originates at the Transportation and Ticket Center and goes to Magic Kingdom.

EPCOT Monorail

Before you get on a Monorail, make sure you’re taking the right route because the Monorails that go to Magic Kingdom do not make stops at EPCOT and vice versa. You will even need to switch to the EPCOT Monorail at the Ticket and Transportation Center if you’re traveling from the Resort Monorail or Express Monorail and going to EPCOT. If you’re confused, be sure to ask a Cast Member to help you figure out how to get to your destination.

People confused about what stop to get off at

Likewise, it’s common when people get confused about what stop they need to get off at. This is particularly true of the Transportation and Ticket Center. For example, if you have to switch Monorails to get to EPCOT, you need to know to get off at the Transporation and Ticket Center.

Magic Kingdom Monorail station at Transportation and Ticket Center

If driving, you’ll also need to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center if you’re going to Magic Kingdom and take the Magic Kingdom Monorail, meaning that when you leave Magic Kingdom, you need to remember to get off at the Ticket and Transportation Center, too, to get back to your car. It can be confusing, we get it.

Family Fights

It’s the end of a long hot day in the parks and everyone’s nerves are on edge. When you’re with your family, it’s easy to just snap and start fighting with each other. But here’s the thing you need to remember: you’re in a public space. Everyone else on the Monorail can hear what you’re saying.

Please don’t get into arguments on the Monorail

Yes, we’ve seen our share of family fights on the Monorail, but we’re asking you to please restrain yourself until you get back to your hotel room. Please don’t bring your arguments into the public.

Here’s the Bad News About the Monorail in Disney World

Reciting the dialogue

You know who you are. The very same people who loudly recite the dialogue in Haunted Mansion are going to recite the Monorail dialogue, including the “Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas.” Usually, the Spanish part is spoken loudly by folks who don’t actually speak Spanish, and it’s just embarrassing.

Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas.

If you can’t contain your excitement at hearing the Monorail dialogue, fine…just don’t say it OUT LOUD. Mouth the words, keep it inside, and please don’t share your performance with the world.

What To Do When the Worst Case Scenario Happens on the Disney World Monorail

So, yes, people can be cringey on the Monorail. So the best thing you can do is NOT be that cringey person: do your research (or just ask a Cast Member for help if you need it) and show some respect and kindness to those who are riding the Monorail with you.
