Disney finally made it official today by announcing that the Disney Skyliner will be opening on September 29, 2019. This comes in the wake of inside information leaking about an August 28 target date.
During my initial report, I stated that Doppelmayr had the earlier date set for a “target opening”. I believe this date could be the internal goal to safely allow people to ride. This could be in the form of cast member testing, soft openings or even opening the Hollywood Studios line before Galaxy’s Edge.
Disney may be using the September 29 date to ensure that all three lines between Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Disney’s Pop Century and Art of Animation can “officially” open simultaneously.
No matter what, I am thrilled to finally have Disney’s official word and will anxiously look forward to flying on September 29. Make sure to follow PASSPORT TO THE PARKS for the best Disney Skyliner information and fun!
