The Disney Skyliner is a brand new transportation system being constructed at Walt Disney World. Guests will ride in “Gondolas” suspended by a cable in the air to various destinations on property.
The Skyliner route interconnects Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Riviera (Still under construction), Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot.
Disney’s Skyliner is still under construction and is due for completion sometime in 2019. On March 26, 2018, I went to observe the construction taking place at the resorts so I could share the progress with you.
Caribbean Beach Resort
Skyliner Construction is underway at the southern end of the resort across from “Trinidad South”. The gondolas will run along side “Barefoot Bay”.
The central loading and unloading station is also under construction. This will be a transfer point between Disney’s Pop Century and Art of Animation, Disney’s Rivera and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The transfer station will be located near the new Caribbean Beach entrance off of Victory Way (due for opening end of summer, early fall).
Disney’s Pop Century and Art of Animation Resorts
The Skyliner’s Main transfer station is under construction on Hourglass Lake. There is a bridge that connects both resorts together. The station will have a very modern look and the gondolas will rise up and over the lake, proving wonderful views along your journey.
The foundation is under construction for the new transfer station on Hourglass Lake.
Disney Skyliner Towers
Here is a closer look at a Skyliner tower located near the entrance of Disney’s Pop Century Resort. The towers are approximately 100ft tall.
The Disney Skyliner is due to open in 2019 (no exact date has been announced). Make sure to follow along at PASSPORT TO THE PARKS for future construction updates.
