    Looking at staying at pop century in either January 2024 or the Halloween season in 2024, but saw the skyliner may be down...can you confirm? I don't want to be stuck on just the bus like all stars again, and skyliner is my only reason for staying

    Hi Cynthia! Welcome to planDisney!

    There is nothing quite like planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! It's the time to start dreaming about all the magical experiences you are bound to have! Let's dive right into your question and help you start booking your 2024 stay!

    Disney's Pop Century Resort is a great place to stay for a variety of reasons, but none more than having direct access to the Disney Skyliner. It allows you a quick route to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. While there hasn't been an announcement about any closures to the Disney Skyliner for the upcoming year, I would follow along with the Disney Parks Blog for any new updates. For the past two years, the Skyliner has briefly closed for routine maintenance in January. The past closures have lasted for about a week. I believe Walt Disney World chooses this time of year since it tends to be a quieter time at the Resort.

    Since having access to the Skyliner is a priority on this trip, I would tend to lean toward the Halloween season to visit. There hasn't been any history of scheduled closures during this time of year. If you are flexible with your dates, you can book a vacation for January, and then modify your dates if any closures to the Skyliner are announced. Keep in mind that even if the Skyliner is up and running, there may be times during your stay when it may not be operating. Certain weather conditions may lead to a temporary closure while a storm is passing through. In this case, buses will be available to take you back to your Disney Resorts hotel.

    Cynthia, I hope you have an amazing time during your visit! Stop back any time to planDisney with additional planning questions.

    See ya real soon!
