To some, the skyliner is another Disney attraction.  Take a smooth, quiet, and quick ride above the roadways.  You can hop on at Pop Century and travel to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  In addition, the skyliner provides fast and easy access to other Disney Resorts along the skyliner route, as well as more dining and amenities.
