PHOTOS: UPDATE on the Skyliner’s CLOSURE in Disney World

Have you heard the very important Disney World transportation update?

Disney World’s Skyliner

Disney World has all kinds of free transportation for you to use to get between the parks, hotels, and Disney Springs. There’s a fleet of buses, a few Monorail lines, boats, and the Skyliner. It’s fun to use the more unique options, like the Monorail and Skyliner, and they’re often faster than the buses and boats anyways. But if you were planning to ride the Skyliner, you need to watch out for its scheduled CLOSURE.

The Disney Skyliner closed on January 22nd, and it won’t reopen until January 30th. So for guests planning to stay at a hotel with a Skyliner station or hoping to use the Skyliner to get between EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll need to plan for alternate transportation.

It’s closed

Disney is providing bus transportation for hotels on the Skyliner lines to get guests where they need to be while this service is down.

The closure is for “planned maintenance,” and thanks to DFB reader @clairesafford04 on Instagram, we got to see a quick peek at what that maintenance looks like!

Make sure you plan for this transportation change if you’ll be in Disney World over the next few days! The Skyliner should reopen on January 30th, and we’ll be watching for any updates or changes to that plan.
