Walt Disney World Buses
Most of the Disney Vacation Club properties reopened their doors last month on June 22. Since that date, buses have been running to get Guests to Disney Springs and back to their Home Resort Hotels.
Monorails at Walt Disney World will begin operating again on Tuesday July 7. We previously reported that only the Magic Kingdom loop would be open. It is unknown when the EPCOT loop will be reopening for Guests. However, with a July 7 reopening date, Annual Passholders will be able to take advantage of the Monorails for Passholder Previews that begin next week.

Ferry boats at Walt Disney World will resume service on July 7 as well. At this time, we believe the service will only be offered to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort. It is possible ferry boat service will also be available to and from the Ticketing and Transportation Center as well.
The Disney Skyliner will reopen on July 15. July 15 is the same day Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT are scheduled to reopen. The Disney Skyliner connects Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Riviera Resort to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

Contrary to reports online, Walt Disney World’s Minnie Vans will resume service sometime after the Parks reopen. An official reopening date has not been announced but we will sure to bring it to you as soon as it is.

Also reopening at a later date is Walt Disney World watercraft transportation.
