Orlando Theme Park News is reporting that the full monorail schedule will be in effect during Spring Break...

 

 


As it was reported a few weeks ago, the Express monorail will not be operating from 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through this summer.

That being said, to accommodate Guests during this busy season, full monorail service will be available March 29 – April 13, 2015. Work will resume on the Express beam on April 14. The Resort monorail service will remain continuously available. Cast Members will also be available to assist Guests.

As part of ongoing infrastructure work being done around the Walt Disney World monorail system, monorail service will run on an adjusted schedule beginning at 11 p.m. on May 3, 2015. This schedule is set to continue through early July. During that time, buses and watercraft will remain available to Guests.


That being said, you should take note of the fact that full monorail service will be available daily during the busy Memorial Day week period (May 24-27, 2015).

Here is the official Walt Disney World monorail operating schedule valid from May 3 through July:

It would be even better if they would announce new monorail beams being constructed to AK and HS.

 

But at least they are maintaining the ones they have and not replacing them with even more buses.... yet....

I saw this posted a couple of hours ago.  If you are at WDW, please stay away from the monorails, as they have been hit by lightning and will be down for the rest of the evening.

They also shut down the small boats yesterday afternoon before the storm hit the area just as we were trying to get back to the Fort. We got as far as Wilderness Lodge. They have a 10 mile lightning strike rule. Assuming the new Gondolas will operate under the same rule. The Weather Bug App really comes in handy when you are trying to track lightning distance and navigate around Disney. You can get a jump on the rest of the crowd when it comes to using the buses. Couldn't believe they didn't send those people on the dock into the Lodge for safety instead told them to wait for a "bigger boat" as they watched the smaller boat captains drive off to a safe harbor. IMHO if the lightning is that close and they shut down the small boats they need to get the people off the docks. Florida's lightning needs to be taken seriously. I've got security camera pictures of it hitting a tree in my yard when it was 10 miles away, not a drop of rain falling, blue sky and the rain clouds off in the distance. Scary-I've got a whole new respect for those warnings.

Same thing last week.  We were at EPCOT to see the Guardians Show and the 5:30 one was cancelled due to lightning.  But the masses were still walking around the rest of the park being moving targets.
