    If staying at Pop Century does the skyliners open early enough to get to the Parks for magic hours?

    Hi Staci!  I just returned home from a stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort, where I had an opportunity to try the new Disney Skyliner transportation system.

    My friend and fellow panelist Jessica and I were just now discussing how much we adore the Skyliner.  It makes it so quick and easy to get to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot from Disney's Pop Century Resort.  We both agree that we much prefer the Disney Skyliner to bus transportation.  It is quicker, and the view cannot be beat!

    The operating hours for Disney Skyliner do fluctuate with park hours.  I took a look at the Times Guide I picked up during my visit, and for this week Disney Skyliner begins operating at 8:00 am when Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios both open at 9:00 am.  On a day when either park has Extra Magic Hours beginning at 8:00 am, the Skyliner begins operating at 7:30 am.  Be sure to pick up a Times Guide during your visit to find out the current operating hours.  A sign with the day's hours is also posted at each station.

    Staci, I timed my entire trip from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Disney's Pop Century Resort including a transfer at the station at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and the total trip was less than 15 minutes, making this a very efficient means of transportation!  The trip to Epcot is a bit longer, but very enjoyable.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Enjoy your stay!
