Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Just returned from WDW stayed at the Polynesian. I thought I understood the monorail routes, Sometimes we got on the monorail and it took us directly to the TTC but sometimes we had to stop at other resorts. How do you know which one is the direct rail?

    There are actually 3 main monorail routes. One is for travel to and from Epcot and the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC).

    When exiting the Magic Kingdom, the Express monorail line will take you directly to the Transportation and Ticket Center. It then returns expressly to the Magic Kingdom. This route helps shuttle the guests to and from the parking lot.

    The Resort monorail departs the Magic Kingdom. It then stops at the Contemporary, TTC, Polynesian and Grand Floridian before returning to the Magic Kingdom. The reason it stops at the TTC is due to the passengers that are going on or returning from Epcot. Sometimes guests that have parked at the TTC will board the Resort monorail as well. Once upon a time, WDW required guests to show their Key to the World card prior to using the resort monorail. Now all of WDW transporation is open to resort and day guests.

    At the TTC, you can either board the Epcot, Resorts or Magic Kingdom (Express) monorail.

    When you depart the Magic Kingdom, the monorail queue furthest to the left will say "Resort Monorail" and the one to the right says "Express".

    Hope this helps! Please stand clear of the doors!!
