Question for those who stayed between Dec and March when it was busy - how did they manage the Skyliner station in the morning? That is to say, it would seem to me that the gondolas would all be full coming from CBR between the AoA/Pop guests and the CBR guests. Do they leave every Xth gondola coming from CBR open to make sure there’s space at Riviera?

    Hm I don't remember! When we went to Hollywwod Studios we took an Uber because we were going super early to get Rise of the Resistance. But ont he way back, and also heading over to EPCOT and back we never had a wait on the Skyliner except right after fireworks (only about 5 min).

    We were there March 3 for MMRR opening. Like you, we took Lyft to DHS to ensure a boarding group. We never went to Epcot at rope drop but, when we went, the skyliner was no problem. there were empty gondolas and they filled in others that had open space (that practice is likely done b/c COVID).

    It's been reported that CBR does indeed send empties when needed.

    So we missed our May trip, rescheduled to June, cancelled that and are scheduled for a short trip the end of September to use up our banked 2019 points. 🤞



    More photos...
    Picture sideways and can’t figure out how to rotate but these are our face covering masks on the hook at the front door 🤓
    Thank you so much for the great report and gorgeous photos. I love the mask hanger. And the food report is just making me ache to be there. Thank you so much for letting me live vicariously through you. Your Skyliner pics make me want to be in them so bad, heading off for the day’s adventure!


    Well I just moved to the Riviera from Beach Club for our Thanksgiving week stay. Since there isn't an opening date for Beach Club, I thought it would be a great time to try this new resort out. We booked a 1 bedroom Villa. Read through the posts and it looks like a beautiful place to stay. Excited and hoping we get to go in November!!!!
    Great choice. :-) I hope you do too!! Please post pics if you do. I’d love to see them!


    That's awesome. We have a stay for the first week of December. I'm hoping we will feel safe enough to go then, we are watching the situation closely. Fingers crossed!
    The safe part is definitely the hard part. I’m good with what Disney is doing but the plane ride from CA is not making me relaxed.


    Interesting...
    I saw this and thought it seemed close to home. Lol. They would be silly not to incorporate some shared elements.

    I haven’t heard anyone say getting on at Riviera has been a problem but heading to park opening at HS looked rough at the Caribbean Beach station. Park opening though.
