Disney Skyliner Transportation System
Disney Skyliner transportation system is a new ‘gondola’-type system was announced at the 2017 D23 Expo. No opening date has been announced by Disney yet. The gondolas will have stations located at the International Gateway entrance of Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Pop Century, and Art of Animation with the hub being located at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Look at the proposed concept art map below to see how they will flow!
The design of the Disney Skyliner station at International Gateway at Epcot will be inspired by the park’s nearby European Pavilions. The top will be covered with metal and glass canopies. Guests traveling to Epcot by the Disney Skyliner will be welcomed to the park with a rare birds-eye view of World Showcase.
The design style of the station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will fit with that of the park’s main entrance and bus stations. Passengers traveling here from the Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station can expect a new aerial perspective of the park’s iconic attractions.
Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will share a Disney Skyliner station that will fit in with both resorts. When departing the gondola station, Skyliner passengers will ascend over Hourglass Lake and enjoy a panoramic view of these two colorful resorts.
Cabins are going to slow down at the Disney Skyliner turn-station along Buena Vista Drive and guests will be able to see the mechanical and aerial elements that make up the Disney Skyliner. Select Disney Skyliner cabins will have iconic Disney characters incorporated into their exterior design.
