We found out earlier this year that the Disney Skyliner is coming to Walt Disney World and we now have more information. As part of 12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas, we’re excited to share news from the Disney Parks Blog about this new upcoming transportation system. Guests will be able to revel in a picturesque, bird’s-eye view of the Parks as they travel from select resorts toEpcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Here’s what we know about the Disney Skyliner system so far:
In select Disney Skyliner cabins, you’ll find that you have a Disney travel companion! Iconic characters—such as the Fab Five (Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, and Goofy), Beast and Belle, the Hitchhiking Ghost from the Haunted Mansion, and more—are part of the exterior design. How charming!
The Disney Skyliner station at International Gateway at Epcot will have designs inspired by the beautiful European Pavilions nearby the Park. An early 18th century Art Nouveau vibe welcomes guests as they step into the Disney Skyliner toward Epcot and face a spectacular bird’s-eye view of World Showcase!
Inspired by the open air village marketplaces of the Caribbean, the Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station will allow guests to travel by transferring gondola routes—or simply sit and admire the waterfront resort setting.
Passengers traveling to the station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will see a stunning aerial view of the Park’s iconic attractions, such as the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
Finally, the gondola station at Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will lead passengers over Hourglass Lake for a panoramic view of the two colorful resorts.
Cabins will even slow down along Buena Vista Drive for guests to witness the mechanical and aerial components that make the magic of Disney Skyliner possible!
Can we just ride the Disney Skyliner everywhere? This is going to be our preferred method of transportation when it comes to Walt Disney World, without a doubt. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog to find out when this incredible new experience is opening!
