A new dawn of transportation at the Walt Disney World Resort will hit the sky very soon! Disney just announced that the Disney Skyliner Transportation System will begin transporting guests via the sky on September 29, 2019.
The amazing new system has been in testing mode for the past few months. Guest have witnessed the colorful character gondolas traveling through the sky around the Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot resort areas for a while now sparking questions of when will it officially open. We now know!
Some interesting facts about the Disney Skyliner: Over 6 miles of cable will be used to connect the entire system. There will be 5 loading stations. The Skyliner will service 4 different resorts (Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort). There will be 3 lines and 2 connecting theme parks (Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios). The new transportation system will give guests some unique views of the Resort that were never able to be seen before.
“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.” Disney Parks Blog
