    We have 7:30am reservations at Riviera what time can we use the skyliner ? AOA to Riviera

    Hey howdy hey Margaret and welcome back to planDisney!

    One of my top recommendations for anyone staying at Walt Disney World Resort is finding an excuse to ride Disney Skyliner. With connections to so many resorts and a short walk to Disney's Boardwalk, there are so many reasons to check it and the destinations out. What a truly unique way to get around the parks and resorts and the views from the Skyliner are so unique, it is such a really cool experience! And don't get me started on reasons to visit Disney's Riviera Resort. Anyway, I can go on for quite some time about transportation at Walt Disney World Resort, let's get to some specifics. 

    Disney Resort Transportation starts to run in the mornings approximately 45 minutes prior to park open and about an hour or so after park close. It would highly depend on the park hours for the day you have your reservations if the Skyliner would be an option or not. With the ever-changing park hours, keep an eye on the hours listed and for any Early Morning Entry times as well. So, say Epcot opens at 9:00 a.m. but has Early Morning Entry to allow for entry to the park 30 minutes prior to this time. Transportation will start to run around 7:45 a.m. for an example. As the dates start to get closer to your trip, make sure to keep an eye out for the changing times as this will change the times to expect Disney Transportation to start running for the day. You do always have an option for ride share to the reservation if you think it will be cutting it too close and you can use Disney Transportation after. 

    One thing is for sure though, staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and visiting Riviera Resort for dining, sounds like this trip will be so much fun. My girls absolutely love Art of Animation and the Big Blue Pool, we make sure to spend at least one full day enjoying the resort amenities! I hope this helps to clear up some transportation options. Be sure to keep checking those park hours as they do tend to change and let us know if you have any further questions. 

    Happy planning,
