Disney Unveils Disney Skyliner Gondolas

Share This!

The Disney Skyliner has been a frequent conversation starter ever since it was announced back at the last D23 Expo. Love them or hate them, they are being added as an additional mode of transportation for Guests looking to go from Epcot to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As we get closer and closer to their fall 2019 debut, Disney has finally unwrapped 55 of the cabins and we can now see what gorgeous artwork adorns the windows.

As you can see, there are many different Disney characters and Disney attractions that are featured on these gondolas. Ride with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Lilo & Stitch, the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion, the Pirates from Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars characters, characters from Toy Story, and more.

Test runs of the Disney Skyliner will continue to occur and as of right now, these cabins are making their test runs back-and-forth between Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

When fall arrives, Guests will be able to ride from the following Walt Disney World Resorts – Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort – to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

We still don’t have an official opening date of the Disney Skyliner. Stay tuned to the blog for more information!

    If they are far enough along in the project to be unveiling them and allow them to travel, I do not understand why it is not going to be operational until the fall? They need 4 or more months?

      Construction not finished at the stations? I was briefly at WDW 2 weeks ago and looks like a lot still to be finished.

    Why does it look like there are no windows on these, I can see the flaps on the side which previously I think I have seen open (air con). I would feel a little claustrophobic inside these if I couldn’t see out.
