First Look At Disney Skyliner Gondola
Earlier this week we brought you the exciting news that the Disney Skyliner will be ready to begin transporting guests at the Walt Disney World Resort beginning fall of 2019! Today during the D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse event Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled the actual gondola to all of the Disney fans present.
Attendees were excited to get the first in-person look at the Disney Skyliner gondolas. This new transportation system will convey guests to their favorite destinations when it debuts later next year.
Disney Skyliner will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four resort hotels. The hotels include Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. It also includes the proposed 15th Disney Vacation Club property, Disney’s Riviera Resort.
And select gondolas will have iconic Disney characters incorporated into their exterior design. This gives the appearance that a Disney pal is riding along with guests, such as characters from the ‘Fab Five,’ figures from Disney attractions, fan favorites from movies, and more.
To bring Disney Skyliner to life, teams are making progress on this innovative system. In addition to uniquely Disney station designs that complement their surroundings, support towers have been popping up across Walt Disney World Resort. Actually, workers just installed the last support tower at the Resort and are beginning to thread the series of reinforced cables to carry guests in stylish themed gondolas.
In the meantime, check out the video below for a fun look at this new system.
