This post is proof that I learn something new every trip to Walt Disney World. When we take the monorail we are usually heading to the Magic Kingdom. We have only taken the monorail from the Transportation and Ticket Center a few times. Of those times we have never made a return trip to the TTC via the monorail until February.
In the post I wrote about the monorail earlier, I noted how steep the ramps at the various stations can be. The Epcot stations ramps are actually better than the Magic Kingdoms, they aren’t quite as steep when you are heading out to the parks. The photo below shows the ramps that lead up to the boarding area. I was happy to learn I could avoid them.
In February we headed back to the Epcot station for the return trip to the TTC and noticed this gate. It is located at the base of the ramps that lead to the boarding platform. It’s easy to miss so just keep an eye out for it.
I was thrilled! Yes, it’s just an elevator but for us it meant a lot less work trying to get up to the monorail.
Once you get to the top floor you get out of the elevator at the wheelchair loading gate. We timed it perfectly and the monorail was just arriving. The Cast Members got the ramp out and we were able to board immediately.
