Plan Your Flight: Walt Disney World Skyliner Operating Hours!

Walt Disney World’s Skyliner officially opened yesterday, and we were there to bring you some sights from the first day’s flights. And now we’ve got details about the gondola system’s operating hours!

Skyliner gondolas in action!

Disney World Resort guests were given a guide to Skyliner’s hours yesterday, and they’re pretty much what we expected. At least for this week, Skyliner will run from its Resort stations at Art of Animation and Pop Century, Caribbean Beach, and (presumably) Riviera (when it opens in December) prior to Park opening. The Resort Skyliner lines are running from 5:45PM.

Operating Hours for opening week — plus a pin!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios line — where the Park currently has three Extra Magic Hours from 6-9AM daily through November 2 — is running from 5:45AM. Epcot — where the Park hours start at 9AM this week — is running from 8AM.

All lines are running until 11PM — with the exception of Tuesday. Tuesday, October 1, is the first night of Epcot Forever, and Epcot has nighttime Extra Magic Hours until 11PM. Skyliner will run until midnight on Tuesday, October 1.

Skyliner operating times (and wait times!) are expected to be added to the My Disney Experience app, so stay tuned to AE for that info when it comes out!
