The Monorail is a nice, relaxing trip. Here the Tron Monorail is over at Epcot!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to #Day20 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  Today we are taking a look at one of the fun free activities that you can do — take a ride on the Monorail!  The Monorail for me is a nice relaxing transportation mode, and when you need to just get off your feet for a while, this is definitely one way you can do that.  It takes you around the Magic Kingdom resorts, with stops at the Magic Kingdom, the Contemporary Resort, the Transportation and Ticketing Center, the Polynesian Resort, and the Grand Floridian Resort.  Also, at the TTC, you can ride over to Epcot and back.


The Monorail also has the distinction of going through the Contemporary Resort!

I remember when I first went to the Magic Kingdom, and what was really neat to me was how we got on this futuristic train, almost like a rocket, and left Florida behind as we approached the Magic Kingdom.  The anticipation, knowing that we were getting close to Disney World, as we called it, was so much that I can remember it like it was yesterday.


Over at Disneyland, you can still ride in the front of the Monorail. I wish we could at Walt Disney World too!

Of course, Disneyland has the Monorail also, although over there it is more of an attraction and less of a transportation means.  The Monorail there only connects Downtown Disney with Tomorrowland, but what is neat is that you can still sit in the front of the Monorail there!

What do you think of the Monorail?  Worth it, or just use it as a means of transportation?  Do you take time out to just ride the monorail, or is that wasted time that could be spent at the parks?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks!
