There are 3 deluxe resorts on the Monorail loop:
The Resort Monorail stops are located in the following order:
- The Magic Kingdom
- The Contemporary
- The Ticket and Transportation Center (parking lot and Monorail to Epcot)
- Polynesian Village Resort
- Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
You do not have to get off the Monorail at any of the above stops. You could ride it around and around if you really wanted to. You are also allowed to take the Resort Monorail to get from the Magic Kingdom to the Ticket and Transportation Center. You do not have to be a guest of the above resorts to ride this Monorail.
Because the Monorail Resorts are so easy to get to, it is often a great idea to book a Table Service Meal at one of their many restaurants on your Magic Kingdom day.
You can also dine at the Quick-Service restaurants:
You do not have to be a guest of the resort to tour it’s premises. You are welcome to shop, walk through the resort, along it’s beaches and even book a rental for a boat or surrey.
During the Christmas season, each of these resorts are decorated and large Christmas trees adorn the lobby and other areas. You’ll find a life sized Gingerbread House at the Grand Floridian and a huge Gingerbread Christmas tree at the Contemporary. It is worth taking the time away from the parks to browse these resorts.
In addition to the Monorail, each resort also has boat transportation that is available to everyone.
- Grand Floridian – Take a boat to the Magic Kingdom or Polynesian Village Resort
- Polynesian Village – Take a boat to the Magic Kingdom or Grand Floridian
- Contemporary Resort – Take a boat to Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness
There is so much for everyone to see and do at the Monorail resorts. We love browsing these resorts during our down time!
