The Expert Guide to Hollywood Studios Complimentary Transportation

by Leap on September 10, 2019 1 Orlando

The Expert Guide to Hollywood Studios Complimentary Transportation - PinterestWalt Disney World is a big place! With four theme parks, two water parks, the Disney Springs shopping and entertainment center and more than 25 hotels, it can be tough to choose where and how to get where you want to go. Luckily, you can get almost anywhere within the resort using free transportation. This is especially hopful if you're staying on-site at a Disney resort hotel, which we toadally recommend. But even if you're staying off-site and have a Park Hopper ticket, you can use the free buses, monorails and more to leap from park to park. Today, we're looking at the free transportation options to and from Disney's Hollywood Studios.

This park, which celebrates the magic of movie-making, television and theater, is home to Fantasmic!, Toy Story Mania and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Hollywood Studios is also the new home of Star Wars Land, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which is welcoming travelers to Batuu. Knowing all of the Hollywood Studios complimentary transportation options can save you time, especially now that Galaxy's Edge is open.

Ready to Hitch a Ride to Hollywood Studios on Skyliner?

Hollywood Studios Free Transportation - Skyliner Station

The new Disney Skyliner, a sky-high gondola transportation system, has finally opened, and it includes a stop at Hollywood Studios. It connects Epcot and Hollywood Studios with Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort. However, there is no direct line between Epcot and Hollywood Studios. You'll have to hop off and transfer lines at the Caribbean Beach station. It's about a 12-minute ride from Epcot to Caribbean Beach and a 5-minute ride from Caribbean Beach to Hollywood Studios (don't froget extra transfer time).
