    Hi Disney, two questions: 1. As a guest in Disney’s Animation resort, does the Skyliner operation start in time for early entry into Hollywood studios, so around 8 am? 2. When does the parking open of Hollywood Studios? Magical regards Holger

    Welcome to planDisney, Holger!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with this great question. You will not regret choosing to stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Did you know that it has the largest pool on Disney property? It's true! In my opinion, it also boasts the best dining among all of the value-level resorts. 

    All these amenities pale in comparison to the ease of hopping onto the Disney Skyliner to be whisked away to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    Holger, hours for the Disney Skyliner are posted outside of the Skyliner station, but generally, the Disney Skyliner begins running about an hour before the parks open. If you head to the Disney Skyliner when it opens, you will arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios in plenty of time for your exclusive magical time in the parks.

    The parking lots generally opens about the same time, as some guests who stay at the resorts still drive to the parks in the morning. If you want to be one of the first people in line for your favorite ride, it has been my experience that the Skyliner sometimes opens a little early, before the parking lots open. 

    I hope that this answered your question, Holger!

    See you real soon!
