    I’m a Hilton owner did an exchange with Interval & staying @DisneySaratoga Springs.How do we ride the Skyliner?Can we take bus from Disney Springs to get to the Skyliner just to ride Skyliner with no tickets to those parks? We only have Magic Kingdom

    Hi there Pamela, 

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney today! I'm happy to answer your question and chat about the Disney Skyliner and how to ride it. 

    I'm delighted that your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is steadily approaching, it will be time to pack your suitcases in no time! Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort can use Walt Disney World Resort's complimentary transportation whether by bus, Disney Monorail, water taxi or the Disney Skyliner. My daughters always try and see how many modes of transportation we can use and the Disney Skyliner is one of their favorites!

    When you're staying at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, you'll be very close to the walkway to Disney Springs. To catch the Skyliner, I'd head to Disney Springs and catch a bus to one of the BoardWalk area resorts. From here, it's a quick walk to the Skyliner station at the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT. I would suggest hopping on the Skyliner to Disney's Riviera Resort and taking a quick stop for a bite to eat at Primo Piatto, a quick-service restaurant with delicious pastries and fantastic meals. Guests can ride the Disney Skyliner to the end of the line at Disney's Hollywood Studios - I have to say, it's pretty neat to see the Tower of Terror from a different point of view! Since you are not entering a theme park, no tickets are required. 

    Disney Skyliner connects Disney's Hollywood Studios and International Gateway at EPCOT to the Disney Resort hotels below: 
    Please note: Disney Skyliner operates daily one hour before Early Theme Park Entry begins at Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT and closes 90 minutes after these two theme parks close.

    Pamela, I hope these recommendations are helpful. Please let me know if you have any more questions, I'm happy to help!

    Happy planning,
