This week, Walt Disney World Resort announced on the Disney Parks Blog that the Disney Skyliner gondolas would be operating starting in the fall of 2019. Today, they showed us the gondolas themselves. Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products unveiled the new gondola to the fans at D23’s Destinations D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse Event. The gondolas will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to three existing hotels and one brand new one. They are Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. They will also link to the brand new Disney Vacation Club property, Disney’s Riviera Resort. We have also been told they will have passive ventilation to keep air moving!
Some of the gondolas will have these adorable character designs on them, as well! This will make it look like some of your favorite Disney characters are riding along with you in the gondola. The picture above is just a taste of the designs that will be incorporated. They have promised us the “Fab Five,” some attraction characters, movie characters, and more. We are super excited about the new gondolas and can’t wait to ride the Disney Skyliner.
