Disney Skyliner at Walt Disney World Opening Fall 2019

Bob Capek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products has officially announced that the Disney Skyliner will debut in fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort!  This is huge, exciting news for guests that will be traveling to Walt Disney World later next year.  The Disney Skyliner is the new gondola system that will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort (the new Disney Vacation Club property).

The Disney Skyliner will provide guests with a new transportation option to get around to these locations.  It will also provide guests with amazing views and photo opportunities from vantage points that you can only get from Disney Skyliner.  Construction is still underway on the system.  Currently workers have installed the last support tower and are beginning to thread the series of reinforced cables to carry guests in the themed gondolas.

Who else is ready for the Disney Skyliner to finally open?

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!
