The Walt Disney World Resort announced the new Disney Skyliner almost a year ago and we are so excited for it to be completed! Construction has been steady at each of the sites that the new Skyliner will serve select Disney resorts, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. A completion date has not yet been announced. We can confirm progress is being made over at Epcot’s International Gateway, the entrance from Disney’s Yacht Club, Disney’s Beach Club and Disney’s Boardwalk Inn to the World Showcase.

Disney has always been very meticulous in hiding construction or ‘unsightly messes’ from it’s guests as a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is supposed to magical, at every turn. So the walls come up to keep to magic alive. It can’t cover everything though.

As you can see, the turnstiles that will hold the gondolas are standing with construction in the background.

The Disney Skyliner is set to become a very popular transportation method. Guests are already trying to plan their vacations around the Skyliner opening so they can be among the first to take advantage.

The Skyliner will serve Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and the new Disney Vacation Club resort that will be named Disney’s Riviera Resort (scheduled for completion in fall of 2019). It will connect these Disney resorts to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Guests will ride in gondolas through the skies to reach their destinations!

Do you plan on being one of the first guests to experience the new Disney Skyliner system when it opens?
