    Hello! I am staying at Conorado Springs later this month and want to access Epcot via International Gateway. Am I able to get a bus to Hollywood Studios and then use the Skyliner early in the morning to get early access this way please? Thanks! Hannah

    Hi Hannah! Welcome to planDisney!

    You have chosen a great Disney Resorts hotel to stay at during your upcoming visit later this month! Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is classified as moderate but has plenty of deluxe characteristics. The Gran Destino Tower, which opened a few years ago, has added several amenities and recreation activities to enjoy at this resort.

    Currently, buses are the only mode of transportation to get from Coronado Springs Resort to any of the four theme parks. When traveling to EPCOT, the bus will take you to the front entrance of the park. In order to access the International Gateway entrance into EPCOT, your plan of taking a bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios is a smart idea. Once you arrive, you can hop on the Disney Skyliner, but make sure to transfer to the EPCOT line once you get to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. 

    If you have your walking shoes on and prefer not to take the Skyliner, you can take the walking path from Hollywood Studios to Disney's Boardwalk. Once you get here, follow the Boardwalk path to the International Gateway entrance. The walk takes anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes, just this will depend on how quickly you move. There are also Friendship Boats that travel between the two parks. This boat will make a few stops along the way, but will eventually get you to your destination. This mode of transportation is more leisurely and may take a few extra minutes to arrive at EPCOT.

    Hannah, you will have plenty of options available to utilize Disney Transportation to get you to your desired location. This may entail a few different modes of travel, but getting to your destination is part of the fun of a Disney vacation!

    I hope you have a magical stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
