Skyliner Closed For Weeklong Maintenance at Walt Disney World
Today marks the official start of the one week Disney Skyliner closure at Walt Disney World. The Skyliner closure is for routine maintenance and alternate transportation is available for guests staying at one of Disney’s resorts on the Skyliner route.
Above is a look at the official Skyliner closure notice taken from disneyworld.com. As you can see the Skyliner will remain closed through January 29, 2023.
The Walt Disney World resorts impacted by the Skyliner closure are as follows:
- Disney’s Pop Century Resort
- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
- Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
- Disney’s Riviera Resort
Guests staying at these properties should be on the lookout for signage at the resort directing you to additional transportation options.
Our MickeyBlogger is on the scene at Disney World this morning and noticed closure signs at the Skyliner entrances.
As of going to print, the Skyliner is completely down. None of the gondolas are moving.
In these images, you can see, what is usually a very busy EPCOT International Gateway Skyliner Station. Everything is quiet and still on this Monday morning.
Disney has not given a specific reason for the closure.
It is believed that the closure is simply for routine maintenance.
Disney tends to up its maintenance schedule during off-peak times of year.
We also noticed that scaffolding is already in place at the EPCOT Skyliner stop.
Guests looking to go between EPCOT and Hollywood Studios should give yourselves extra time for bus transportation.
We will continue to keep you updated regarding the Skyliner closure.
