    Can I take the skyliner from art of animation straight to Rivera resort?

    Hiya Michelle and Welcome to planDisney! How exciting that your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is right around the corner! A trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is a great way to start the New Year!

    My family and I stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort last October and it quickly became one of our favorite resorts. My children absolutely adored the Cars Suite we were in! 

    Now Michelle, I have great news and not so great news. The good news is yes, guests are usually able to take Disney Skyliner from Art of Animation to Disney's Riviera Resort. During my last visit, when we made the trip from Art of Animation to Topolino's Terrace at Disney's Riviera Resort, it took my family and I about 10 minutes to get from one location to the other.

    I see your arrival date is January 22, 2024 and the not so great news is from January 16, 2024 through January 21, 2024, Disney Skyliner will be closed for routine maintenance. Disney Skyliner service to and from Disney’s Riviera Resort and International Gateway at EPCOT will remain closed through January 27, 2024. During this time, complimentary bus service will be available. A quick reminder that the busses do not run from resort to resort. You would need to take the bus from Art of Animation to a park then transfer to Riviera Resort. 

    Another great transportation option is Disney Minnie Van Service, connected by Lyft! Just use your smartphone to request a ride through the Lyft app. It's simple, quick and easy!

    Michelle, I hope you find this information helpful and thank you again for visiting planDisney!
