I recently stayed at Disney’s Pop Century and watched as the Disney Skyliner would fly across the sky. My excitement for this new transportation system only increased by finally seeing it zooming around in person. I know many people are like me and have been anxiously awaiting the official date for the grand opening of the Disney Skyliner and today we officially have it. It will open on September 29.
The gondola system will transport Guests to two theme parks and four resorts, connecting 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, which is scheduled to open in December 2019.
The Disney Skyliner is incredibly unique because it offers a brand new way to experience the resort with amazing views that are only available to Guests from the sky. What makes the Disney Skyliner even more special is is that the many of the cabins feature artwork of your favorite Disney films, attractions and characters. Cabins include Coco, The Haunted Mansion, Goofy, Finding Nemo, Mike and Sulley, The Seven Dwarfs, Beauty & the Beast characters, Star Wars, and more.
The Disney Skyliner was officially announced almost two years ago to to the day back at the 2017 D23 Expo.
