    We’re staying at Pop Century. With DHS opening time of 7, how do I get there before rope drop? From what I’m reading, guests are being told to use the Skyliner, but it doesn’t open early enough, and the bus schedule has been reduced. Options?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Leah!

    I had the chance to stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort a few months ago with a group of my friends and while it was one of my favorite Resort Hotels already, the addition of the Disney Skyliner has improved it in a really incredible way. It is so convenient to just hop on a gondola and glide through the sky to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and a few other Resort Hotels!

    With the opening of the Disney Skyliner, the bus service to those two Theme Parks from Disney's Pop Century Resort has been reduced, but only during the hours that the gondolas are running. The Disney Skyliner is not up and running early enough to get you to Disney's Hollywood Studios if you want to be one of the first guests to join a boarding group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance but there will be buses running at that time to pick you up and drop you off. Minnie Van Service has also recently been expanded and now starts early enough to get you there on time if you'd prefer a private ride. You also have the option of using your favorite rideshare service and they can drop you off right outside the gates by the Disney Skyliner station. There are plenty of options for you to try if you can't get a gondola ride as early as you want to!

    I hope this answers your questions, Leah, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
