Gondola System Confirmed for Walt Disney World

We reported previously about the speculation from patents filed for a gondola system to be added at Walt Disney World.  Well, we are excited to announced that this new transportation has been officially confirmed.  The confirmation comes from documents released today between Disney and The Reedy Creek Improvement District. This new gondola system will link multiple stations with 3 different lines.  The lines will be between Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Caribbean Beach Resort and an area between Art of Animation and Pop Century.


Disney hasn’t made any formal statements about the effort at this time. They have tried diligently to keep the project a secret for as long as possible, but the original documents filed were public permits that were found by various news sites and were reported on.  The documents released today confirmed that each gondola will be able to hold 10 guests at a time.  They will be built and developed by The Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group from Europe.

As always, we will report any new information that we find about these new gondolas.  What do you all think of the new system?  Who can’t wait to try them out?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
