Walt Disney world announced that their monorails will now only run from the parks to one hour after the normal park closing time. Which, generally, is not a problem. Unless you are an evening Extra Magic Hour fan (like myself) or those attending the holiday parties in the Magic Kingdom. The buses and ferries will run, with more added, for those needing transportation. But, those resort guests staying in a monorail resort for the monorail convenience- will now have to keep this inconvenience in mind.
The announcement from Disney:
“From time to time, we make adjustments to our operations to
accommodate for planned transportation maintenance. With that in mind, operating hours for the Epcot Monorail system will be modified to operate one hour after regular park close beginning July 11, 2011 and the Magic Kingdom Monorail system will also operate one hour after regular park close beginning August 1, 2011. At that time, watercraft (where applicable) and additional buses will be available to transport guests to their destination.
