The new Disney Skyliner will open at Walt Disney World Resort on Sept. 29, the company announced this week.
The new gondola system connects the International Gateway at Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and four hotels: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the new Disney’s Riviera Resort, which opens in December.
Disney has been testing the system for the past few months, grabbing the attention of many visitors who have been asking when the colorful gondolas, adorned with Disney characters, would be open to passengers.
Some Disney Skyliner cabins feature graphics based on Disney films, attractions and characters, including those with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and Chip & Dale. Other Disney stories taking flight with guests include: “Coco,” “Finding Dory,” Haunted Mansion, “Ratatouille” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Offering bird’s-eye views of resorts and theme parks, Disney Skyliner will be the newest transportation option at Walt Disney World Resort, joining a fleet of monorails, watercraft and motor coaches.
