    Hi! Is it possible to take the skyliner from Art of Animation to Epcot and then the Monorail to TTC to get to Magic Kingdom for Early Entry in the morning? Or is it better to just take the bus to TTC in the morning from Art of Animation? Thank you!

    Hi Sarah!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    This is a great question!  Let's talk it through -

    One of the best "perks" of staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort is having a Disney Skyliner station right on your doorstep!  This makes travelling to EPCOT, and Disney's Hollywood Studios a real breeze - so simple, and quick.  The Skyliner is a comfortable, fun ride - with fantastic views high above the Resort.  You can also visit other Disney Resort hotels along the way (Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and the gorgeous Disney's Riviera Resort) just to explore, or to enjoy some dining.  Disney's Pop Century Resort is also on the line, but that is within walking distance from Disney's Art of Animation.

    The easiest way for you to get to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) is by taking a bus from your hotel.  Disney transport will start operating around 45 minutes before park opening, but please check with your Front Desk - the buses may arrive earlier than that.  I recommend you are ready and waiting at the bus stop at least 10 minutes beforehand.  (So, if the bus is due at 7.45am, I would be  at the bus stop by 7.30am.). 

    Just to explain - if you take the Disney Skyliner to EPCOT, the station is located at the International Gateway entrance.  You will have to enter the park (with valid park tickets), walk through World Showcase, and World Celebration to the front entrance, from where you'll board the monorail.  When you arrive at the TTC you will need to transfer to another monorail for the entrance to the Magic Kingdom.  You can see it's a long way around!  Save your Skyliner trips for your days at EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
