I did see in the transportation thread that Orlando Parks News posts the weeks' guide times each Sunday. Checking that for the current week, it does show Skyliner starting at 7:30, with buses 45 min prior to park open. I assume those times are set in stone? Seems silly that given the number of people looking for a BG at 7 AM that the Skyliner would begin 30 min after park open, which means that by the time you scan in, you're looking at a backup BG, if at all.

I haven't attempted to ride since my first ride in mid December and I'm planning on riding again sometime next week. What's the current gameplan? As long as you're in the park before 7:00 you can get a pass right at 7:00? If I arrive at the parking lot at 6:15 would that be enough time?
Yes, 6:15 plenty of time. I did that both days last weekend and was in the park by 6:30 both days.

Just assume if you're trying to get there before open that you have to either walk the path from the BW area or take a bus. No Skyliner. Buses and boats have been starting 2 hrs before park open.

WARNING, WARNING, INCOMING......

#FirstWorldRANT

Younger daughter has the flu, wife has to work and I committed to helping my neighbor with a cabinet delivery, so no Saturday RotR for me 😱😥😱

Hoping little one feels better by Sunday, otherwise it’s just older daughter and I for Sunday RotR (assuming I don’t get flu by then).

No work/school on Monday, so might make up for my lack of a Saturday ride then.

Okay, yeah......

Busses and Boats actually run at least 90 min prior to park open. Trust me, Disney will get you to the park in time to get a boarding group. When Skyliner is not running, they have Sklyliner resorts on 20 minute (or less) service.
Skyliner operation times are listed at the stations and pretty much stick to posted opening times. My understanding is they have to run wthout passengers for a period before they open each day, so you see them moving

Hope it’s not like this all weekend
This has been a... well the worst performing day since open. They are still at 50. Is it down again?

At this point they are probably better off just closing up and doing some apparent much needed work to have this thing running as well as possible heading into a holiday weekend with a bunch of fastpasses being handed out today. Typically, it has performed well on weekends, for whatever reason.

Still sitting here with BG 67.... sigh....

What are they going to do for those of us with APs? What am I going to do with a 1 day park hopper?

Are they not giving out FPs for ROTR?

Anyone know?

Your best bet is to go Guest Services and be polite, yet insistent on whatever reasonable compensation you feel is deserved.

So is the park still open at 9:30pm or is it all shut down except the CMs at RotR?
In my example the Park closed at 9:00, but RotR kept Boarding Group going until nearly 10:00. That night the shops in GE were still open after Park closing, and I’m sure the shops near Park entrance were open well past Park closing...not sure if that was what you were asking?

If you aren't called you would get a FP for ROTR and a one day park hopper. I feel like I saw someone saying they transferred their ticket to someone else, so definitely could be useful. Additionally, it's valid until 2030 if somewhere down the line you aren't an AP every year.
