Disney Skyliner Reopens at Walt Disney World Resort

The Disney Skyliner returned to service on Monday, October 14th above the skies of the Walt Disney World Resort. The Disney Parks Blog made the announcement this morning. The blog also shared that,  “following a complete review with the manufacturer, we’ve made adjustments to our processes and training, and we are improving how we communicate with guests during their flight with Disney Skyliner.” 

The highway in the sky will be operating from 8:00 AM to 10: 30 PM, however later this week it will be operating with reduced hours. This is due to updates for the system. The following announcement was found on the Walt Disney World Disney Skyliner page:

Disney Skyliner Announcement

The Disney Skyliner has been closed since October 5th when an incident left guests hanging for several hours. The last week has been spent investigating, evaluating, and then testing the system.

The Disney Parks Blog also gave a reminder update on the nature of the Disney Skyliner. The comparison was made to that of a ski lift. With that in mind, there will be times where the Disney Skyliner may (and probably will) slow or come to a stop throughout the course of one’s journey aboard it. This is especially true when there are guests the need certain accommodations for loading with additional time.

The Disney Skyliner connects Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios to four Disney resort hotels: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort (and the soon to be open Disney’s Riviera Resort).
