    Hi what’s the best way to get to Epcot from Carribbean Beach Hotel?

    Welcome to planDisney, Barbara! Thanks for stopping by with this great question. You'll be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort soon, and what a gorgeous time of year to visit. Spring has sprung! You'll love staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, so let's look at your travel options.

    The best way to get to EPCOT from this resort is to hop aboard the Disney Skyliner. Soaring above the trees is the perfect way to start a magical day. It's my husband's favorite way to get around, so we typically stay at one of the resorts on the Skyliner route. 

    My first tip is to look for signage near the Skyliner station and snap a photo of the operating hours for that day. Since the Skyliner's hours usually depend on theme park hours, this is good information to keep handy. You can also ask any Cast Member at the station for details of operation.

    Since this station is a hub, you'll follow boarding signs for EPCOT. You won't have to make any transfers, but you'll briefly stop at the nearby Disney's Riviera Resort. Just sit tight and enjoy the view! 

    The ride to EPCOT usually takes about 15 minutes but can vary depending on weather and other factors. I like to use Mobile Food Ordering during the ride to plan my first snack of the day! Remember that the Skyliner station is at the International Gateway at the EPCOT World Showcase. You'll go through security and scan in near the France Pavilion. It sounds like the perfect opportunity for Pain au Chocolat at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie. Chocolate for breakfast? Yes, please!

    If you prefer to enter EPCOT through the main entrance near Spaceship Earth, I recommend using a rideshare or Minnie Van Service. These options are not complimentary, but they could be a bit quicker than the Skyliner. 

    Finally, Disney Bus Service might be available to EPCOT from this resort, especially in inclement weather. Please feel free to check with the front desk when you arrive to see the current transportation options. 

    Barbara, I hope you enjoy sailing through the clouds on your upcoming visit! Stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
