    With the opening of the new gonadal transportation system where will the drop off points be located? I read that at Epcot it will drop you at International Gateway but where will drop point be at HS. We'll be staying at Caribbean Beach.

    Hey howdy hey Brandi and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The return of the high flying gondolas akin to those that used to carry Guests between Magic Kingdom Park's Tomorrowland and Fantasyland is some of the most exciting Disney news for 2019. Disney Skyliner will provide Guests access to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot from Disney's Rivera Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort, and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Recently we got to see test runs from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. So cool and smooth!

    Here is the setup. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is the "hub" of the Disney Skyliner. Every gondola Guest will travel through this access point to get to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios. The Epcot station is just outside the International Gateway adjacent to the World Traveler on the west side. Disney's Hollywood Studios station is off the entrance plaza to the theme park. A quick two minute walk to the entrance touchpoints gets you "inside the movies" from the station.

    The good news is that from Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort you have around a 7 minute glide to Disney's Hollywood Studios and about a 10 minute adventure to Epcot. There is no faster transportation to these theme parks from your Resort hotel.

    Disney Dad Tip: The My Disney Experience mobile app is my favorite planning tool. One of the best features is directions between Walt Disney World Resort locations. Check the app for travel times for Disney Skyliner to help minimize travel time thus maximizing your time in the theme parks.

    Brandi, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
