Disney Skyliner is an all-new transportation experience set to debut this fall at Walt Disney World Resort. Testing of the system’s nearly 300 guest cabins and other elements is well underway, and today we have new details to share about this innovative transportation system.   

Disney Skyliner will offer guests sweeping views while whisking them between Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and four Disney resort hotels. Each cabin can accommodate up to 10 guests, including those traveling with wheelchairs or assistive devices. And with the system constantly in motion, guests will arrive at their selected destinations in minutes while enjoying the comfort of cabins specifically tailored for the Florida climate.

Check out the video below for a peek inside a Disney Skyliner cabin and to hear Walt Disney World Resort Senior Vice President Thomas Mazloum and Walt Disney Imagineering Principal Architect Dean Huspen tell you more about this unique transportation system.

  • is it possible it will be operational in August 2019

  • I can wait to fly over Disney! It’s going to be amazing.

  • Any idea as to the expected hours of operation? Similar to buses?

  • Will be at Pop Century in 36 days. Any chance for a soft opening or preview rides?


  • lol never mind the video shows the bench seating :)))))

  • This is very exciting and we are anticipating enjoying the gondolas!

    Are there seats similar to the monorail like the bench seating or standing room only except for strollers and scooters?

    Wish it was ready for our upcoming trip next month…
