The dawn of a new era in Disney transportation is right around the corner! On September 29, Disney Skyliner gondolas will take flight and officially begin transporting guests around Walt Disney World Resort.

As many of you have seen, this state-of-the-art transportation system offers a new way to experience the resort with amazing views only available from the sky.  Disney Skyliner connects Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four resort hotels- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the new Disney’s Riviera Resort scheduled to open in December 2019.

Some Disney Skyliner cabins feature graphics based on Disney films, attractions and characters. We previously featured a few of the character cabins on the Disney Parks Blog, including those with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and Chip & Dale. Other Disney stories taking flight with guests include:

  • “Coco”
  • Goofy, Pete, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow
  • “Finding Dory”
  • Haunted Mansion
  • “Monsters, Inc.”
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • “Ratatouille”

Before you know it, Disney Skyliner will be floating guests across Walt Disney World Resort! Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more details in the coming weeks.

  • So do you need to be a guest of a Disney Resort to be able to hop on at a Disney Resort? Or can anyone board them if you have valid Disney Parks passes from any stop?
    I’m out there when they start and I’d love to go from Typhoon lagoon over to the Caribbean resort and hop on one into Epcot to watch the last IllumiNations show!

  • Will the Skyliner be able to go from Hollywood Studios to Epcot?

  • I hope you plan to add onto it and connect to all the parks and resorts. Buses are overcrowded now.

  • A year ago a made a reservation to caribbean beach resort for this August, i called and they told me they didn’t have the exact date but it was supoused to be open by my trip, it is dissapointing if opens a month after SWGE…. It will be crazy to get to hollywood studios from the caribbean beach resort….

  • I was hoping it was open by the time star wars opened, then when we arrive, they would be running, at least to hollywood studios from pop century line . Come on open early. I want to ride it.🤞🤞👍👍😁😁

  • With Hollywood studios opening at 6AM with magic hours, should we expect the gondolas to start moving 45 mins prior to park opening like the bus system?

  • It’s not clear from the wording, will be able to go from Caribbean Beach to Epcot on the 29th September? Or only once Riviera is open?

  • Please open the Hollywood Studios line next month!

  • I was hoping that it was opening for SWGE too.

    Let’s put some more Imagineers on this and get it open early, especially the EPCOT line since so much of Future World will be under scrim in September.

  • Bummer! I was hoping to ride one in August. 🙁

  • Thought they Hollywood line might of opended around the same time as galaxy edge?
