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.
The Hollywood Studios station will mimic the retro DHS entrance and bus stop design.
The Epcot International Gateway station will capture the beauty of the Pavilions located near this part of the park.
