    Hi there! We want to stay at Pop Century, but one person is afraid of heights. Can we still get bus service to Epcot and Hollywood Studios via Art of Animation year round, even if the Skyliner is operational?

    Hey Alex!

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort do indeed rely on Disney Skyliner Transportation to whisk guests away to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios Resort. But don't worry, it's not the only show in town. If the Disney Skyliner decides to take a breather due to weather or maintenance, Disney's got your back with trusty buses.

    Now, if you find the thought of soaring through the skies in a Skyliner a bit too much to handle, fear not (pun intended)! You can still enjoy some other modes of transportation without getting airborne. If you're feeling extra special, you can always opt for Minnie Van™ Connected by Lyft for a more private, swanky ride to your theme park destination. Of course, there's always the classic Lyft or Uber, bringing a touch of modern magic to your journey. Sure, it might cost a little extra, but hey, a smooth ride is priceless.

    Now, for your travel partner who's not quite ready to dance in the sky, here's a pro-tip: Dive into the world of YouTube videos, the virtual roller coaster of the internet. Watch some Point of View (POV) videos to get a sneak peek of the gondola experience. It's how I got over my fear of getting on the Skyliner. 

    And if the heights are just too much, consider exploring other Disney Resort Collections hotels like Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. No matter what you choose, may your Disney adventure be as magical as Tinker Bell's pixie dust. Have an incredible time!
