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.
