New Disney World Skyliner Details — with Concept Artwork!

Back in July at the D23 conference, Disney World’s newest form of transportation was announced: the Skyliner, a gondola connecting Epcot and Hollywood Studios with several Disney resorts. Since then, we’ve been daydreaming about flying between resorts and parks, taking in the views from above. And now we have some new details to pore over — plus some exciting concept art — courtesy of the Disney Parks Blog!

First, select ride vehicles (called cabins) will celebrate beloved Disney characters — from the Fab Five to princesses to our favorite Hitchhiking Ghosts! Snagging one of these cabins is already on our Disney World bucket list.

The Blog also shared some concept art for three of the stations the Skyliner will use. Stations will be found at Caribbean Beach Resort, Epcot’s International Gateway, and Hollywood Studios and will also connect Pop Century, Art of Animation, and the new DVC Resort — Disney Riviera Resort. There will also be a ‘turn-station’ located on Buena Vista Drive, where guests will be able to “see the mechanical and aerial components that make up the Disney Skyliner.” So cool!

The Caribbean Beach station will feature the fun and colorful designs you find at the resort itself. And the Blog says this station will be “the hub of activity” for the Skyliner.

    I have to be honest. Not a fan. Just doesn’t seem practical. They had a Skyway and they didn’t learn from that.

  2. Mia says

    We’re looking forward to the Skyliner! An additional transportation choice and the views of property will be amazing!

    I remember getting on the skyway in Tomorrowland and exiting in the little Swiss chalet where Rapunzel’s tower now is, as a kid. I thought it was so cool! I’m excited for this new system, I think it’ll be amazing!

    Looks fun…just a little worried about all those rain storms in central Florida. I wouldn’t want to be stranded up there!!

    Chris, no word yet! The Disney Parks Blog just says to follow them for more details in the future.

    I remember the original skyliner at Magic Kingdom . I loved it !! So happy it will be coming back to the resorts for an awesome exprerience.

    The Skyliner going to the International Gateway is a horrible idea! It’s a small entrance made for the Epcot resorts. It was never intended to hold masses of people from the value resorts which will now go up in price with this new transportation option. So those of you cheering this addition don’t complain when you start paying for it! The IG entrance was the last quiet spot in WDW now ruined so keep saying I can’t wait, your favorite Disney spot will be ruined soon enough!
