Yes. At least, when they're actually running.

Yup, basically.... Monorail loop in the MK area, circles the Seven Seas Lagoon, and the second monorail loop, attaches the Transportation and Ticket Center to EPCOT.... Transfers from one line to the other occur at the TTC....

You got it!

And take note that it is not one monorail that goes between all. You do have to transfer at the transportation center to pick either the train heading to/from Epcot or the one to/from MK.

Although you'd be surprised how many people incorrectly claim they go to other places (some even swear that they go to Sea World and Universal... they don't, for the record).

Yep. One Monorail goes to MK as well as the Grand Floridian, Contemporary and, Polynesian. The other goes to Epcot

I believe there is also an express monorail from TTC to MK

Are both the resort and express still running? I thought they closed down the express line.

I know others have answered, but here is something I had typed up for someone else who was debating on a trip that I had found.

Monorail Loops: There are three separate monorail lines at Walt Disney World (WDW) all based out of the Ticket & Transportation Center (TTC).
  • Magic Kingdom Express Monorail Loop: Runs directly from TTC to Magic Kingdom. This monorail travels through the Contemporary resort on the way to the Magic Kingdom and past the Grand Floridian and Polynesian on the return to the TTC, but does not stop at any of the resorts.
  • Resort Monorail Loop: Travels in the opposite direction from the express. From the TTC, this monorail stops at the Polynesian, Grand Floridian, Magic Kingdom, and Contemporary before returning to the TTC.
  • Epcot Monorail Loop: This monorail travels directly from the TTC to the main Epcot entrance and then returns to the TTC.

The thing you have to understand as a newbie is that Disney is HUGE. Someone said it was the size of Manhattan and I believe that. The Parks (especially Animal Kingdom) are very far apart despite being close on a map. If you are in a rush, the monorail from MK to Epcot (technically this is two separate monorails- you have to switch trains at the TTC but I digress) takes FOREVER and they are pretty close to each other. Disney's rule is to allot 1.5 hours to get to any park and most people would say at least an hour. Keep that in mind.

Actually, it's twice the size of Manhattan and about the same size as the city of San Francisco.

I once tried to tell my daughter-in-law (before her first visit) how big it was. Imagine my surprise when I figured out it was 20 times the size of her hometown that she almost never ventured out of. Huge shock for her.
