Disney Begins Testing on the Disney Skyliner Gondolas at Walt Disney World

Testing has begun on the Disney Skyliner Gondolas that are opening later this year at the Walt Disney World Resort. This new state-of-the-art transportation system will allow guests to travel in the skies between Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot along with four resort hotels – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the proposed Disney’s Riviera Resort, which is now accepting reservations starting on December 16, 2019.

The towers for the Skyliners have been under construction for about a year. Jordan Matthews at Walt Disney Imagineering shares more about this project in this video:

When traveling on the gondolas, there will be the opportunity to look like different characters from The Walt Disney Company are traveling with guests. This could mean that guests are riding on Gondolas with  Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto or Chip & Dale. Different films, attractions, and characters will be represented as well on the Gondolas including:

  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Frozen
  • Lilo & Stitch
  • Moana
  • Peter Pan
  • The Princess and the Frog
  • Ralph Breaks the Internet
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  • Zootopia
  • Coco
  • Goofy, Pete, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow
  • Finding Dory
  • The Haunted Mansion
  • Monsters, Inc.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Ratatouille

Based on the concept art, it also appears that there could be Star Wars, Toy Story and Guardians of the Galaxy representation as well. Donald Duck and Daisy could also be appearing on the Gondolas.

The Disney Skyliner should be opening this fall at the Walt Disney World Resort. What do you think of this new transportation system in the sky? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
