~That is a nightmare! So sorry, that happened. This monorail nonsense needs to be addressed asap! I love the MK resorts but I don't think we will return until the monorail is fixed. It just annoys me -- I can't understand why fixing it is not a high priority. I hope the rest of your trip goes smoothly!

We were there the first week in December and the monorail was down several times from Epcot to TTC. Seems like they are having more and more problems.

No buses from Epcot to CR.
I have been stuck at Epcot, with the monorail down, in the past. At least the OP had the monorail to TTC working!! We took the bus from Epcot to the TTC, figuring that we would be able to take the ferry to MK. Nope, not happening. There had to be 1000 people in line before us. So...we hoofed it over to the Polynesian, figuring we would take the little boat. About 50 people in line ahead of us there!!! It took about 90 mins to get from the TTC to MK that night. My dh was so annoyed by the time we got to MK that he just walked over to the buses and took one back to BWV!!! Dd and I continued into MK without him.

I have to tell you that when the monorail goes down, the ripple effect is something to see!!!

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

We were there last night and the monorails were all down for some reason. Then we were told there was a problem with the ferries and the only option left was to take a bus back to ttc. Now mind you this was after the fireworks and there were loads of people..........9 buses later!!!! We were finally able to board a bus. So totally was NOT feeling the magic last night......

Second, we were on the bus for 50 minutes. We literally could not get off. It's not possible to do anything in that situation.

For some reason the bus stops at the resorts were backed up. We could not get off the bus. That's what took 50 minutes from the TTC to CR.
I dont know why I was thinking MK. Must have been wishful thinking on my part.
