    If Epcot opens at 11am, when does the Skyliner start running at the Riviera Resort? How long of trip is it from the Riviera to Epcot on the skyliner? Thanks!

    Bonjour Diana!

    It’s always such a delight to see you here at planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your question. 

    Don’t you just love the gondola in the sky? It’s like your very own magic carpet ride to a whole new world full of magic and enchantment! The Disney Skyliner has quickly become one of my favorite ways to travel around Walt Disney World Resort!

    Diana, Disney transportation operates an hour before and after listed park hours; in the case that EPCOT will be opening at 11 a.m. EST, Disney Skyliner should start running at 10 a.m. EST. The transportation time between Disney’s Riviera Resort and EPCOT is roughly 5 to 8 minutes. Depending on how quick everyone is getting on/off the Disney Skyliner, it could take a few minutes longer. The wonderful thing is, you will go straight to EPCOT from Disney’s Riviera Resort without any stops! Just be sure you've made your Disney Park Pass reservations and you should be all set!

    Disney’s Riviera Resort is an absolute dream! My family and I just booked our next stay there and we cannot wait to return to the magic. The modified Character Dining breakfast at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera has become a new favorite of mine. I would encourage you to snag some advanced dining reservations if you haven't done so already, as they go quickly! 

    Adieu hope you’ll have the most enchanting vacation, Diana!
