One of the most popular modes of transportation when it comes to Disney World is the Monorail!
The Monorail, as many of you may already know, connects Magic Kingdom to the following locations:
- Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC)
- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Guests who who drive to and from the theme parks must always park at the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) upon arrival and Monorail directly to Magic Kingdom, and Resort Guests who are on the Monorail line have their own separate Monorail line to get them to and from the theme park. Other Resort Guests can use Disney’s bus transportation.
Because the Disney Monorail is something that has been around for decades every since it was first established at Disneyland, and it is such a unique mode of transportation, many Guests see it as something that is iconically Disney! Now, with capacity increasing at Disney World and more Guests filling Magic Kingdom, it seems that Disney needs a little more help with their Monorails.
Disney is looking to hire part-time Cast Members to host the Monorail, and that could be you! If you have ever wanted to work for the Mouse, this opportunity can be the perfect way to get your foot in the door while still having time for other work as it is part-time.
