Today was our EPCOT EMH morning. DGS has a foot injury, so we could not walk to the TTC from the Poly; we boarded the resort monorail at a few minutes after 7am to transfer to the EPCOT monorail that was headed out at 7:30 am. Long story short, monorail was delayed at the Poly, GF, MK, and CTR. Our journey from the Poly to TTC took over one hour. After security, band scanning, we did not make it into the park until after 8:50am.
it was frustrating to know that EPCOT had actually opened before 8am this morning, and we were sitting on the monorail that was limping along the track. We felt bad for those with breakfast ADRs whose plans were disrupted.
On a positive note, we were able to recover the morning, and the 'refresh' tip really saved the day for us.....absolutely awesome!!! Thankfully we had good weather today, so no storms to deal with. We are back at the resort; exhausted. All I can say is it's a good thing Disney ordered that new monorail. Don't depend on the highway in the sky to get you anywhere on time.

Refresh tip?
There is an entire thread devoted to the refresh tip.
it works on the day you are in the park. Once you have used your first FP, you can make a FP for another attraction at the time you want by refreshing in the app.
So if you wanted Soarin' around 1pm, you would refresh continuously between say, 1 and 2 pm. Persistence is the key,just keep trying.
