Walt Disney World Friendship Boat Service Temporarily Unavailable Due to Skyliner Construction

Starting on November 28th, 2018, the Friendship boat service temporarily closed.  This boat service is the waterway transportation that takes guests to and from Epcot (International Gateway entrance), Disney’s Hollywood Studios and select resorts in the area, including Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort the Swan & Dolphin Hotel.  The closure is expected to last into early December 2018.  While the boat service is unavailable, there will be bus transportation available for guests to utilize.

This boat service closure is due to the construction that is underway for the new Disney Skyliner.  The Disney Skyliner is set to officially open in late 2019.  It is a new gondola-style transportation system that will give guests at select resorts more transportation options to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  This new Disney Skyliner 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.  Select gondolas will have iconic Disney characters in the exterior design of the vehicles.  The design will look like a popular Disney character is riding along with them.  There will be a variety of different characters from the different films, attractions and cartoons.  We will continue to keep you posted as we learn more about the Disney Skyliner

Who else is excited about the Disney Skyliner opening next year?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
