    Can you walk from Epcot Skyliner station to Disney Boardwalk without going into park? Also, will we be able to take skyliner in morning from Art of Animation resort to get to Boardwalk for 930 breakfast reservation before Epcot opens?

    Hi there, Jackie! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I see that your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth is right around the corner. I bet you are getting so excited!

    Jackie, when taking the Disney Skyliner to Epcot, you are dropped off at the International Gateway which is where the back entrance to Epcot is located. You do not need to enter Epcot to use the service in this area. Once you exit the Disney Skyliner area, you'll take an immediate right to head over to Disney's BoardWalk for your breakfast. 

    Transportation, including the Disney Skyliner, opens up anywhere from 45 minutes to one hour prior to the theme park opening. Because Epcot has been opening up at 11:00 a.m., I'm not sure if it will get you there on time. Sometimes the Disney Skyliner has been known to run a little bit earlier than all of the other transportation. If you have time or are over there anyway, it might be wise to ask a Cast Member working the Disney Skyliner stop at Disney's Art of Animation exactly what time they think they will open. 

    If you can't use the Disney Skyliner to get to your breakfast, it will be tricky to get over there. The Disney Skyliner also services Disney's Hollywood Studios. Depending on what time they open you can always take the Skyliner over there and then hop a boat or walk back to Disney's BoardWalk area. If you aren't interested in using multiple forms of transportation, I suggest using a ride-share service. I use them all of the Walt Disney World Resort and find them to be pretty affordable and convenient. 

    I hope you enjoy breakfast over at Disney's BoardWalk, Jackie. It's such a beautiful place to look around I know you'll have a great morning. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm here to help!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
