    I realize that the Skyliner refurb is happening right now but will we have access to International Gateway on the weekend of Jan 25th if we walk from Beach Club?

    Hi Kim!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    Yes, you are correct that Disney Skyliner has been closed for routine maintenance from 16th January, but the good news is that International Gateway remains open for all Guests. 

    It's a short walk from Disney's Beach Club Resort as it is the closest, but Disney's Yacht Club Resort is not much further away.  Additionally, all EPCOT Resort Area hotels (including Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Hotel) are served by FriendShip Boats if you prefer a relaxing boat ride.  This map shows where the hotels are located in the EPCOT Resort Area - you'll need to scroll down the page to find the map.

    If you are planning to spend the whole day at EPCOT from World Showcase right up to the front entrance, maybe taking a spin on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind or a gentle ride around Spaceship Earth on your way, you can then take a bus back to your Disney Resort hotel at the end of your visit. Buses will be available for all the Disney Skyliner Resorts to/from all four theme parks throughout the Skyliner closure.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions, you can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be very happy to help you plan your magical vacation, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
