A very special thanks to ravensfan005 over on Instagram for letting me know that the Disney Skyliner stations and gondolas are now showing on the My Disney Experience mobile app. Disney is getting ready for the grand opening day on September 29.
The Disney Skyliner has five primary stations located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort (opening in December) and Epcot’s International Gateway.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort Station
This is the primary hub for the Disney Skyliner and is also where the gondolas are stored. We can also see the new bus loop and station that was added in front of the station (pictured at the top).
Disney’s Pop Century and Art of Animation Resort Station
Disney’s Riviera Resort Station.
The resort is opening in December, but the station will allow a pass through when the Skyliner opens on September 29.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios Station
Disney’s International Gateway Station at Epcot
Located between Disney’s Riviera Resort and Epcot’s International Gateway is a 90 degree turn that the gondolas must make while traveling back and forth. The turnstile is also shown here on the My Disney Experience App.
The entire Disney Skyliner route is shown clearly on the map all throughout Walt Disney World property. Here are some key areas along the gondola routes.
The gondolas travel over Hourglass Lake at Disney’s Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts.
The gondolas will travel over the parking lot at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
A very scenic journey will be traveling over the islands of Jamaica and Aruba at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
One of the highest points along the Disney Skyliner route is along Buena Vista Drive between Disney’s Riviera Resort and Epcot’s International Gateway.
Finally, we will see a beautiful view of the France pavilion when approaching the International Gateway at Epcot. The new Ratatouille attraction will be in plain view, but unfortunately is not shown on the map. The attraction is rumored to open sometime next year.
The excitement is building as we are just under two months from the grand opening. It’s fun to watch more details appearing each day. Be sure to Follow PASSPORT TO THE PARKS for the best Disney Skyliner information and fun!
