    If I am not staying on Disney property, can I park my car at the Pop Century, starting at 7 am until around 11 pm? We are not staying at a Disney resort, but would like to ride the Skyliner to Epcot in the morning.

    Hi Abigail, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for sending your question our way. I'd be happy to assist a fellow traveler today.

    Soaring to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios aboard the Disney Skyliner is a magical way to arrive at these theme parks. It's convenient, fun, and my favorite way to travel around Walt Disney World. Parking at adjacent resorts, including Disney's Pop Century Resort, is exclusively for registered Guests of these hotels. I do have a few ways you can enjoy the most magical flight on earth during your vacation, so stay tuned!

    While exploring the wonders of EPCOT, consider taking a break from the theme park's hustle and bustle to have an early dinner at one of the resorts along the Disney Skyliner. Sebastian's Bistro at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort or Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort are excellent choices that accept reservations. Bonus if your return flight to EPCOT features a sunset view! I recommend booking a 5 or 6:00 dinner, so you have time to position yourself along World Showcase Lagoon for the evening showing of Luminous The Symphony of Us.

    Fancy a meal with character and a midday resort break? Reserve the latest possible breakfast seating (usually around noon) at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. First thing in the morning, enjoy a couple of EPCOT attractions, then make your way to the International Gateway and board the Disney Skyliner for a magical brunch.

    If a resort table-service meal doesn't work with your itinerary, you're welcome to enjoy a scenic roundtrip flight on the Disney Skyliner simply to enjoy the ride and take in the sights. It's a great way to rest your legs and escape the theme park crowds for a bit. You'll need to hop off at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, where you can transfer to another line or return to EPCOT.

    I hope this gives you some ideas for experiencing the Disney Skyliner on your vacation, Abigail. Best wishes for a fantastic adventure, and if there's anything we at planDisney can do to make it even more memorable, don't hesitate to come see us again. Thanks again for stopping by, and we look forward to welcoming you "home" soon!
