Transportation Update! Here’s When Disney World’s Skyliner, Monorail, and Select Resort Boats Should Resume!

When select Disney World resort hotels reopened last week, we knew transportation would be limited, but we were still holding out hope we might get to ride the monorail or go for a gondola ride on Disney’s Skyliner!

Well, that didn’t exactly happen…BUT today we finally know exactly WHEN we can expect Disney World’s many modes of transportation to be operating again!

Earlier today, theme park reporter Scott Gustin posted the dates of when we can expect Disney World’s transportation to resume!



Disney World’s monorail with service to Magic Kingdom should be up and runnin’ on July 11th — the same day Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom reopen. Note: Epcot’s monorail resumptive date is unknown at this time.

And Disney’s Skyliner is set to reopen on July 15th — the same day Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be reopening. We’ll be curious to see how it operates and how many folks will choose this way of getting around since Disney’s Skyliner connects to both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Resort boat service to Magic Kingdom from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge should also resume on July 11th. A resumptive date for other Disney World Resorts including Disney’s French Quarter’s Sassagoula boats and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort’s Friendship boats has yet to be announced.
