A Look at Disney Skyliner

Last year we shared details about Disney Skyliner, a new way to move guests across Walt Disney World Resort with a bird’s-eye view. This new gondola system will conveniently connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four resort hotels- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort as well as the proposed 15th Disney Vacation Club property, Disney’s Riviera Resort.

To bring Disney Skyliner to life, teams are making progress on this innovative system. In addition to uniquely Disney station designs that complement their surroundings, support towers have been popping up across Walt Disney World Resort and will soon be connected with a series of reinforced cables to carry guests in stylish themed gondolas. You may even see this work underway over the next several months as teams install the miles of cable between towers.

In the meantime, check out the video above for a fun look at this new system and keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more details.

Comments

  • Are they handicap accessible?

  • Very sad over what this will do to the International Gateway. Which makes me wonder if it will be expanded to handle the larger influx of guests that will be entering Epcot through this entrance.

  • I want a skyliner T shirt to wear when I ride it!

  • Will there be air conditioning?

  • Do they have a projected date or season that this may open?
