If you’re looking for a fun way to explore the Walt Disney World Resort, consider doing a Disney monorail bar crawl! This is a great way to see all of the different monorail stations and to enjoy some delicious beverages along the way.
What is the Disney Monorail?
The Disney monorail is a form of transportation at Walt Disney World that uses electrically-powered rail cars that are suspended above the ground by enormous steel beams called “guideways” to move guests around the parks.
Often looked at as a fun way to get from one place to another, Disney guests can use the monorail system to travel throughout the resort and visit all two of the four theme parks (Magic Kingdom & Epcot).
How Does a Disney Monorail Bar Crawl Work?
A Disney monorail bar crawl can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to plan ahead. Here’s how it works:
1. Choose a starting point and make your way to the monorail station.
2. Board the monorail and take it to the next stop.
3. Get off the monorail and walk to the nearest bar.
4. Order a drink and enjoy!
5. Repeat steps 2-4 until you’ve made your way back to your starting point.
What Bars Can You Visit on a Disney Monorail Bar Crawl?
There are a number of great bars that you can visit on a Disney monorail bar crawl. Let’s look at the locations we suggest in the Disney Monorail resorts.

This small bar located next to Chef Mickey’s and the Contempo Café has great views of the sunset over Bay Lake. It’s a nice, casual location to start your bar crawl if you want to start off with a relaxed vibe and great view.

There are several places to grab a beverage at the Poly. This is where you’ll most likely spend most of your time on the monorail pub crawl.
Sip on something tropical at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, and then make your way to the outdoor Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace for a Mai Tai. This is also a great place to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks show.
This Polynesian Village Resort bar is a must-stop on your Disney monorail bar crawl. It’s home to the famous Lapu Lapu, a drink made with Myers’s dark rum, Bacardi Superior rum, orange juice, and pineapple juice served in a fresh pineapple.
