The Disney Skyliner is shaping up to be an amazing new way to travel between select resorts and parks during your Walt Disney World stay. Announced last summer, this new gondola transportation system will take guests into the sky for a bird’s eye view.

Construction on the section at Hollywood Studios park is progressing. The towers that will hold the gondolas are now up around the parking areas.

A closer view shows the mechanical workings of the system.

The towers will dot the skyline throughout all of the connected properties.

The Disney Skyliner will connect Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Art of Animation Resort and Pop Century Resort to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The new Disney Vacation Club Riviera Resort, which is being constructed, will also be connected to the Skyliner system. This will be a major benefit of staying at one of these Disney resorts.

The gondola project is set to be completed and open in late 2019.
