    My family and I want to ride the new Skyliner gondolas at Disneyworld, but we will not be staying on Disney property. What’s the best way to ride?


    That is a great question, and when I was at Walt Disney World in November I had that on the top 5 list of Must Do! experiences!

    The simplest way to experience the Disney Skyliner, and the one that is likely the most convenient for a typical guest, is if you are moving from Epcot to Disney's Hollywood Studios, or vice versa. The ride is both a scenic and convenient way to get between the two parks.

    If that does not match your needs, or you are not park hopping, I would still suggest going from Disney's Hollywood Studios on the Skyliner to that Epcot stop. You do not have to enter Epcot, as it unloads outside of the International Gateway. You could instead head from there to visit Disney's Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is, in my opinion, one of the most under-appreciated areas of Walt Disney World. I love to stroll the Boardwalk in the late afternoon or evening to take in the treats, the entertainment, and the more relaxed mood. Maybe grab a scoop of ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery. You earned it!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
