Thanks to the Orlando Sentinel we have an inside look at the interior of the new gondolas for Disney’s Skyliner coming this fall! The small cabins will have twin wooden benches that will hold up to 10 people as they soar across Disney property to their destinations at approximately 11 mph. The Skyliner system will run with 8 different colored gondolas wrapped with over 22 Disney characters over 60 feet in the air at it’s highest point.

Thomas Mazloum, a Disney senior vice president who oversees transportation and resorts,  said the ride will feel much faster than 11 mph. It will run smoothly and stay cool as they have taken into consideration the Florida heat.  “We have specifically designed them with the Florida climate in mind,” he said, pointing to reflective windows that block out the sunlight and the mesh screens on both sides to bring in a breeze.

The Skyliner will take between 5-15 minutes to travel between the parks,  loading is described as continuous in the Skyliner stations, with the capability to pause the system to allow wheelchairs to board. Many guests have expressed concerns about wheelchair accessibility, and now we have some answers!

Take a look here at just how fast they cruise:
