resort monorail route?

Staying at the Poly for the first time this December

What is the order of the resort monorail stops?

And is this correct: the EPCOT maonrail goes only between EPCOT and the Transportation center?

From the Poly, the monorail loop would go to the Grand Floridian, the MK, the Contemporary, the TTC and then back to the Poly.

To get to Epcot, you have to take the monorail to the Transportation and Ticket Center, and then board another monorail (to Epcot). Or you could just walk from the Poly to the TTC (there is a walkway) and then get on the Epcot monoral. That's what we did and it was a relatively short walk. We also enjoyed reading all the engraved bricks on the path.

The Poly is a great place to stay. Hope you enjoy your trip!

There are three monorail loops.

The Resorts loop starts at TTC, then goes to Polynesian, Grand Floridian, Magic Kingdom, Contemporay, and back to TTC.

The Express loop starts at TTC, then goes direct to Magic Kingdom, and back to TTC, with no other stops.

The Epcot loop starts at TTC, then goes to Epcot, then back to TTC, with no other stops.

See my Maps page for a map of the 3 monorail routes:

If I were you, I would just walk to the TTC from the Poly. We were staying in Tuvalu, which is (if not the farthest) one of the farthest longhouses from the TTC. Even so, it was much shorter to walk than to take the Resort monorail ALL the way around, stopping at the GF, MK, and CR to load and unload, then to have to wind from the resort monorail ramp to the Epcot monorail ramp.

Have a great visit!

I agree with you because no matter the Longhouse you stay in, walking to the TTC will be faster then taking the Monorail all the way around to the TTC.
