NARRATOR
Welcome aboard the Walt Disney World Monorail to Epcot. For those of you standing, please hold on to the handrails throughout our journey, and stay clear of the doors. For the comfort of others, no smoking please. Thank you.

As we turn south, you can catch a glimpse of the spires of Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom. Nearby is Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

You can upgrade a Magic Your Way Ticket at any time prior to its expiration by adding more days or options, such as Park Hopper Plus. Just stop by any theme park ticket window for details.

(NARRATOR makes seasonal announcements, if applicable.)

We are traveling to Epcot — where the magic of Disney comes together with the wonders of the real world. Its 300 acres are divided into two themed lands: Future World and World Showcase. Future World offers fascinating explorations into the realms of communication, transportation, and imagination. You’ll also find adventures in space flight, sea exploration, food production, and emerging technologies. Discover the culture and cuisine of eleven nations in World Showcase. On the banks of the 40-acre World Showcase Lagoon are Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, The American Adventure, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom, and Canada. Young adults from each nation are among your hosts — making this a truly international exchange.

(Spaceship Earth comes into view.)

Beyond the trees ahead, and to the right-hand side of our forward motion, is Spaceship Earth. This 18-story geosphere marks the entrance to Epcot.

(Monorail enters Epcot and begins loop around Future World.)

Coming up behind Spaceship Earth is Innoventions. Inside this hands-on area, you can explore and interact with the ever-changing technologies and products for everyday living in the near future.

Mission: SPACE is an exhilarating sensory thrill ride that puts you and your flight crew in command of an out-of-this-world mission to Mars. At Test Track, you can experience the exhilaration of test driving a vehicle on the longest and fastest ride ever created for Walt Disney World.

Coming into view is World Showcase. Directly across from us, on the far shore of the World Showcase Lagoon, is our host pavilion, the American Adventure.

Those glass pyramids are the gateway to your Journey Into Imagination. Inside, you can explore the creative process with Figment.

Next, is The Land, where you can celebrate the Earth’s rich diversity. The Land is also home to Soarin’ — a free-flying adventure across natural wonders.

At the Seas with Nemo and Friends, you’ll meet some of your favorite undersea pals and have a live chat with Crush, the sea turtle from Disney-PIXAR’s Finding Nemo.

We are approaching the Epcot Monorail Station. Smoking is not permitted at Epcot, except in designated areas. Please consult your guidemap, or ask a Cast Member for locations. Please hold onto the handrails, and stay clear of the doors until the Monorail stops completely and the doors open.

Welcome aboard the Walt Disney World Monorail System. We’re traveling to the Transportation and Ticket Center. For those of you standing, please hold onto the handrails throughout our journey, and stay clear of the doors. For the comfort of others, no smoking please. Thank you.

The spirit of Epcot, has guided the design of all 28,000 acres of the Walt Disney World Resort. You’ll find the application of leading-edge technology evident throughout, as we demonstrate our philosophy: if you can dream it, you can do it.

We hope you’re enjoying your journey along our “highway in the sky.” Disney Monorails have been operating at Disneyland since 1959. The Walt Disney World Monorail System made its debut in 1971, and was expanded to include Epcot in 1982. Mark VI Monorails replaced the original Mark IV Monorail at the Walt Disney World Resort in early 1991 — completing the modernization of the Disney Monorail System. Each train has a capacity of more than 300 passengers and travels at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. You may have noticed that each of our 12 Monorails is identified with a different color stripe. Our pilots use the colors to help identify the Monorails operating on the system. Originating from the Transportation and Ticket Center, there are three separate Monorail Lines. These include the Epcot Monorail, the Express Monorail to the Magic Kingdom, and the Resort Monorail — which serves Disney’s Contemporary and Polynesian Resorts, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Altogether, you can travel more than 13 miles on our efficient and environmentally-friendly Walt Disney World Monorail System.

We are approaching the Transportation and Ticket Center. To reach the Magic Kingdom, you must exit here and transfer to a Magic Kingdom Monorail or Ferryboat. You can also reach Disney’s Polynesian, Grand Floridian, and Contemporary Resorts by exiting here and boarding a Resort Monorail. Before boarding any Disney transportation, please double-check all directional signs to ensure you’re traveling to the correct destination. If you need any further assistance, a host or hostess will be happy to assist you

This is the Transportation and Ticket Center. Smoking is not permitted at Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Water Parks, except in designated areas. Please consult your guidemap or ask a Cast Member for locations. For those of you standing, please hold on to the handrails, and stay clear of the doors until the Monorail stops completely. When the doors open, please exit to the right-hand side of our Monorail’s forward motion. This Monorail will be returning to Epcot. Thank you.

(Monorail enters Transportation and Ticket Center station.)

Ladies and gentlemen, please check to make sure you have all of your belongings, and watch your head and step when exiting. We ask that you please exit here to make room for guests waiting to board. However, you may re-board our Monorail at any time. Thank you.

(Guests exit at the Transportation and Ticket Center.)

 

(Safety announcement heard when monorail stops unexpectedly.)

Ladies and gentlemen, we are currently holding for further traffic clearance. Please remember to stay clear of all automatic doors. If you’re standing, please continue to hold on to the silver handrails. Thank you.
