Many Guests use this popular mode of transportation to Resort hop to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, or Disney’s Contemporary Resort, while other Guests who are staying at these Resort hotels rely on the Monorail to get them “home” after a long day in the Parks.

Now, it seems that the Magic Kingdom Monorail stop will be undergoing some type of construction in the near future. Walt Disney World Resort officials have filed a work permit for the Monorail station, but it does not give details about what type of construction Guests can expect.

The permit is specifically to “Provide labor, material and/or electrical for construction” and Disney’s own Buena Vista Construction Company is listed as the contractor.

It is important to note that Disney has not announced a Magic Kingdom Monorail substation closure, so it is possible that this will be minor construction that will only minimally impact the Guest experience.
