Here are the full travel estimates between Disney Skyliner stations. Note that Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort serves as the hub for the Disney Skyliner, and guests must exit their gondola and board a new gondola to connect to their destination.

EPCOT to Disney’s Riviera Resort: 5-6 minutes

Disney’s Riviera Resort to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort: 2-3 minutes

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort to Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 3-4 minutes

Disney’s Caribbean Beach to Disney’s Pop Century & Art of Animation Resorts: 3-4 minutes

Using the estimates above, guests should expect a trip between EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios to take about 12-13 minutes plus any time waiting to board and to transfer between lines at the hub.

We’ve found that on average the Disney Skyliner is the quickest and most efficient form of transportation at Walt Disney World. There can be big lines, such as at park open or close, but those lines usually move quickly. We’ve compared the Disney Skyliner to bus and boat transportation, and the Skyliner has consistently won.

Guests should be aware that the Disney Skyliner doesn’t operate during severe weather. Disney will provide bus transportation for guests when the Disney Skyliner isn’t operating.
