    We’d like to start day at EPCOT but end at Hollywood Studios and initially park car at Studios. How early can we park at studios and is skyliner open/running early enough to take us to EPCOT?

    Hey there, Kerrie, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! 

    Kerrie, Theme Park parking lots officially open one hour before Early Theme Park Entry hours. The fantastic news is that the Disney Skyliner starts running at about the same time! So you will not run into any issues boarding the Skyliner after parking at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Skyliner will take you from the Hollywood Studios station to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station where you will have to transfer to the EPCOT Skyliner route. This route will slow down briefly at Disney’s Riviera Resort, but you will remain in your Gondola for a few more minutes to arrive at the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT! 

    And since you’re starting your day at EPCOT, I highly recommend grabbing a quick breakfast at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie (which is just a fancy way of saying bakery!) The Jambon Beurre and Dinde BLT sandwiches are both two of my personal favorites, but you really can’t go wrong with anything in the entire place! PG Pro tip: Ask for the sandwiches and pastries to be warmed, which takes them to a whole new level.

    I hope this helps, Kerrie! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
