Beginning July 15, the Disney Skyliner will be operating once again at the Walt Disney World Resort. We now know more information on how social distancing will work on this transportation option.

Disney issued a press release that stated the following regarding resort transportation for the reopening:

“Transportation – Capacity and guest density is limited for complimentary Walt Disney World guest transportation, and guests are required to wear appropriate face coverings at all times during their journey. Buses and Monorails will implement a combination of physical distancing and physical barriers to provide separation between guest parties.

Party groups will be required to maintain physical distancing while aboard Disney watercraft. Disney Skyliner will load one party per gondola when it returns to operation July 15, 2020. For those arriving in their own vehicles, auto plazas will offer cashless payment; parking lot trams will not be available at this time.”

Before the COVID-19 closure, Skyliner parties were combined to maximize capacity aboard each gondola. Now each party will get its own, private cabin. Disney Skyliner hours will be 10:00 AM – 11:00 PM for EPCOT, and 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM for Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
