    Coming from Art of Animation will the skyliner be running early enough for me to get to Disney Studios before they open at 8:00?

    Hi, Richard!  It's great to see you back here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are going to love staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  With its fun theming, spacious family suites, and the largest resort pool on Walt Disney World property, Disney's Art of Animation Resort is a favorite among guests.  Now with the addition of the Disney Skyliner gondola system, transportation at Disney's Art of Animation Resort is even more convenient.

    My kids took their first ride on the Disney Skyliner last week while we were park hopping between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  They really enjoyed taking in the aerial views of the Walt Disney World Resort property.  I loved how quickly and easily we were able to travel to our destination!

    Although we did not stay at one of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels along the Disney Skyliner route during our visit last week, my family did make the early morning journey to Disney's Hollywood Studios on two separate days.  We were able to catch a bus at our Walt Disney World Resort Hotel around 6:30 a.m. on both of the mornings that we needed to travel to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  When we arrived at Disney's Hollywood Studios around 6:45 a.m., I also saw guests arriving via the Disney Skyliner at that time.  Transportation schedules are always subject to change, so I recommend asking your resort hotel concierge what time the Disney Skyliner will begin operating on the particular day that you plan to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios if you are hoping to join a boarding group to access Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

    Another transportation option that you could consider is the Disney Minnie Van Service.  You can request and pay for a Minnie Van using the Lyft app on your phone.  Since Minnie Vans begin operating daily at 6:30 a.m., this is a great solution to your early morning transportation needs.

    If you have any additional questions as you prepare for your vacation, please visit us again.  Have a magical day!
