    We're having a girls trip mid April at Old Key West. Not planning to visit any parks but just hang out. We would like to ride the Skyliner. What would be the best route and can it be ridden the whole journey. i.e. Is it On a continuous loop.

    Hello Pauline!

    A girls’ trip sounds absolutely delightful! Some of my favorite Disney trips have been adult-only visits. Even without visiting the parks, the Walt Disney World Resort offers so many things to do with your friends and family!

    Disney’s Skyliner is Disney’s newest mode of transportation and offers gorgeous overhead views of the property as you sail from destination to destination! The three start and endpoints of Disney's Skyliner are the International Gateway of Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort which share a station. There is a “hub” at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort where all Guests must disembark, that connects to all three of those final destinations. If you are traveling between the hub at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the International Gateway, you can also disembark at the new Disney’s Rivera Resort.

    If you are doing a resort-only trip, Disney’s Skyliner is a wonderful way to add some adventure to your day! Keep in mind, that with Covid-19 safety precautions, you may be asked for your destination when using the Skyliner, as visits to other resorts are being restricted to those with dining reservations. I would have a plan or reservation in place for the day, and use the Skyliner as my transportation. I would recommend you take a bus from Disney’s Old Key West Resort to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You do not need to enter the park to board the Skyliner. From there I would head to the hub at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and then on to the International Gateway. You could make an Advance Dining Reservation for lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, or Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. You could consider Ale & Compass Restaurant at Disney’s Yacht Club, or how about sushi and karaoke at Kimonos at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel? Or maybe consider a leisurely walk to play miniature golf at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, then grab an ice cream at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. There is a lot to enjoy near Epcot’s International Gateway! After you are done with your adventures, you can either take the Skyliner back to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or for a change of pace, you can board a friendship boat back to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and from there catch the bus back to Disney’s Old Key West Resort.

    I hope one of these ideas sounds like a good plan for your group, Pauline! I hope you have a wonderful girls’ trip!
