It’s been an interesting summer at the Disneyland Resort. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened to the public, Disneyland celebrated its 64th birthday, and both Mickey’s Soundsational Parade and Red Car Trolley News Boys came to an end. While crowds have been relatively low for peak season, we’re seeing them start to pick up. And we have sad news for anyone planning to visit for the rest of the summer: the Disneyland Monorail is reducing its operating hours.
From now until September, the Disneyland Monorail will be closed daily from 11 AM to 6 PM. This reduction in operating hours is sure to have an effect on guests at the Disneyland Resort. The station in Downtown Disney District is often used by guests as their entry point into Disneyland Park, particularly those coming from Disneyland Hotel. And the Disneyland Monorail is often used as a quicker way to get from the Park back to Downtown Disney.
If you planned to utilize the Disneyland Monorail from now until September, we suggest you keep these changes in mind and plan accordingly. Signs are posted at the Disneyland Monorail station in Downtown Disney to remind guests of the new hours of operation.
While it’s unclear why the hours have been reduced so drastically, it’s bummer that this historic attraction won’t be as readily available for the next couple months. If you’re hoping to catch a ride on the Disneyland Monorail, we recommend trying to catch it early before 11 AM. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until it reopens at 6 PM.
