If you’ve been to Disney World in the past few months, chances are you’ve noticed the gondola system connecting Epcot and Hollywood Studios to a variety of Disney resorts. The Disney Skyliner is the newest mode of free transportation offered to guests and it connects both Epcot and Hollywood Studios to Disney’s Caribbean Beach, Pop Century, Art of Animation, and Riviera Resorts.
The Disney Skyliner first opened up at the end of September 2019, and up until this point, the opening hadn’t affected the other options for free transportation at these four Disney World resorts. However, it looks like that has now changed!
Starting this week, the Disney Bus Service to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios has been reduced to one per hour at all four resorts on the Disney Skyliner line. Instead of using the bus, guests are being directed to use the Disney Skyliner to travel to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
While the signs imply that the Skyliner is the only way to access these parks, we were told by Cast Members that buses will still be running from Caribbean Beach, Art of Animation, Pop Century, and Riviera to these parks, just at a very reduced rate.
