Change in monorail operating hours at Disney World

2011-07-11T20:00:09-04:00

I feel that the addition of Bay Lake Tower has really put pressure on the system and now with Disney adding DVC to the Grand Floridian Resort I feel it will only get worse. This is just my opinion though.... Effective [...]
