    Will the Skyliner be operating at the end time of the Disney Afterhours Epcot event in August that ends at 1:00am?

    Hi Courtney! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    What an exciting time to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! It's been a great treat having Disney After Hours events taking place yet again. Starting June 1st, EPCOT will now be hosting these events as well!

    One thing you do not need to worry about when visiting a Walt Disney World theme park is how you plan to get back to your Disney Resorts hotel when you leave. Transportation will run for up to an hour after park closing, including on special event nights. This should include the Disney Skyliner, which connects to several resorts from the EPCOT station. If for some reason the Skyliner is not running (possibly due to weather), there will be Disney Bus Transportation to get you back to your resort. I suggest checking with a Cast Member when you arrive for the event to confirm your options.

    The Disney Skyliner is one of the most exciting ways to get around. I love the ease of boarding and how quickly you can get to your destination. In fact, you really can't go wrong with any of your choices. Traveling by boat or taking a monorail ride to get to the parks is just as fun!

    Disney After Hours at EPCOT will officially begin at 10 PM the night of your visit, but Guests can enter as early as 7 PM to get a few extra hours in the park. This extra time is great for possibly trying out some of the festival booths at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival or catching the nighttime spectacular. Then, once the party starts, you can spend this time riding attractions with minimal wait times.

    Courtney, I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming visit! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
