This past week at D23 Destination D felt a little like Christmas for us die hard Disney fans! We learned so many great things-, especially about the Skyliner!  Over the course of the event, Disney announced a few new details about the upcoming Skyliner gondolas. The most exciting news was that the Skyliner will open sometime in Fall 2019. We even got an up close and personal look at the gondolas themselves!

Since the Skyliners announcement at 2017’s D23 Expo, there has been much speculation as to just how exactly the gondolas would be cooled. Disney recently announced that the gondolas will not have A/C. Not to worry though- the gondolas WILL feature a passive cooling system so it isn’t as though this announcement means we will be stuck in metal boxes in the sky with no relief from the Florida heat. Though Disney has not confirmed just how the passive cooling system will work, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting that this will consist of cross-flow ventilation for air flow and reflective windows to prevent direct sunlight.

When completed, this brand new mode of transportation will connect guests to Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Carribean Beach Resort, (the soon to open) Rivera Resort,  Art of Animation Resort, and Pop Century Resort. This new transportation method will do wonders to alleviate heavy bus traffic to those resorts while offering a fun, new way to experience Walt Disney World Resort while will giving guests a bird’s eye view of the resort.

Stay tuned, if Disney provides any new details about the passive ventilation system will be sure to bring you all of the details.
