    Hi! My family and I are staying at Art of Animation in just 3 weeks I'm trying to plan out our transportation at Hollywood Studios. We would love to take the Skyliner to and from the park. Could you tell me what the hours of operation are for that?


    Thanks for the question!

    The Disney Skyliner operates during the same hours as used by the Disney Bus Service. That means that you can expect them to start running around 45 minutes before the posted theme park opening, and ending two hours after the theme park closing. You should also be aware that bus service between Disney's Art of Animation Resort and both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios are now running at limited schedules, because of the availability of the Skyliner. 

    You will love using the Skyliner! I recently rode it several times, and you can expect transportation times as follows;
    • Art of Animation Resort to Hollywood Studios: 12 minutes
    • Art of Animation Resort to Epcot: under 20 minutes
    These times do not include your waiting in line at your resort for your first gondola, or the time it takes to switch to a park-destined gondola at the Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Skyliner station. But in both cases for me the wait was just a few minutes. 

    Write us back if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
