Upcoming Monorail and Parade Changes

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!

Disney has announced new changes beginning tomorrow regarding the monorail systems in Walt Disney World.  Beginning tomorrow, the Epcot monorail will operate up to one hour after regular park closing, no longer making it available during evening Extra Magic Hours.  The same will be happening with the Magic Kingdom Monorail service as of August 1st.  Extra boat and bus service will be available at both parks to help with Extra Magic Hour traffic.

The Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade in Magic Kingdom will be shown two times a day starting July 18th through July 31st. You can catch the parade at 12:00pm and 3:30pm each day. No word as to why this has been changed though common sense seems to say that they are testing how two parades in the daytime will affect crowd levels at attractions.  Stay tuned to see if this becomes a permanent fixture in Magic Kingdom.
