UPDATE: Disney Has Decided Not To Reopen EPCOT Monorail, Now Using Queue as Overflow Line for Express Monorail
In an update to today’s earlier story, sources indicate that Disney has changed direction and has decided not to reopen the EPCOT Monorail line for the foreseeable future. Disney tested running monorails on the EPCOT line a few days ago, but it was ultimately decided that opening the EPCOT service would cause some physical distancing issues in places, mainly at resort monorail stations where space is limited as it is.
Cast members were seen placing new distancing markers at the EPCOT Monorail station in the Transportation and Ticket Center today, but this is to help with distancing for current extended queues for the Express Monorail.
With this decision, it would seem likely that the EPCOT Monorail will not return to service until after the pandemic has subsided.
