[QUOTE=dadofthree;937094]in the summer of 1985 I spent 2 weeks on property at a resort. Back then, I believe it was “The Hilton”. For some reason I think I am almost positive it was the Hilton. What is it now? We rode the Monorail everywhere.
Also, we ate on a Dinner Cruise - is that still around.[/QUOTE]
From when Walt Disney World opened in 1971 until the Grand Floridian opened in 1988, there were only two hotels on the monorail line, Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Polynesian Resort. They’ve never changed names; neither was even a Hilton property. And now with the GF, there are only 3 on any monorail line.
Perhaps what you don’t recall was driving (or being driven to) Disney’s Transportation & Ticket Center, parking there, and then taking a tram or walking to the monorail system where you could have caught a monorail to Magic Kingdom or a separate one to Epcot (then called EPCOT Center).
