And today, Disney Vacation Club released a video that gives a glimpse into the creation of both the resort and the new Skyliner.
The Disney Skyliner gondola system has been in testing for some time now in preparation for carrying guests this fall. For the most part, the gondolas have been under wraps while in testing. Though, in fact, earlier this week we shared our first peek at an uncovered gondola cabin featuring classic Disney characters. (Find out who here!). But TODAY?
Well, there’s a LOT more than ONE gondola cabin uncovered today! [Read more…]
This week we stopped by Hollywood Studios to check out the BRAND NEW Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy and the return of one of our all-time favorite snacks — the Butterfinger Cupcake! We also got an update on the on-going Skyliner station construction as well as a look at some other new snacks and merchandise.
Let’s kick things off with all that construction happening outside the park!
Hello from Hollywood Studios where we are on the lookout for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction progress, Skyliner System gondola testing, new shakes, new eats, new merchandise, and Disney Snacks as artwork!!
We are so excited and anxious for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this fall that no visit to Hollywood Studios is complete without a peek over the “Toy Story Land wall” to see if we can spot any progress!
Disney World’s newest transportation option, the Disney Skyliner System, has been testing gondolas on the lines over the past couple of weeks. Now, it looks like they are testing the system at full capacity and speed near the Hollywood Studios Skyliner Station.
Those are actual gondolas, not the test gondolas we first saw at the beginning of the month. We can even see some of the artwork on the gondolas through the tarps.
Every visit to Epcot is filled with construction updates, new food, and fun merchandise — and this visit to Epcot is jam-packed with new food (including gluten-free snacks, chocolate covered pretzels,and more), the cutest and sweetest smelling merchandise, and progress on new rides, restaurants, and the Skyliner.
After spending some time with our new BFF Pinocchio, we walked the park — here’s what we found!
Take a look at that distinctive shape! Those aren’t the open-sided testing gondolas from last week! Those are the real gondolas that will be spanning the sky come this fall!
Disney World just announced the Disney Skyliner System was moving into the test mode, and today our Instagram friend @themeparkologist saw what looks like some test gondolas on the cables of the Disney Skyliner System!
Those don’t look like the cute and fun looking Gondolas we know will be coming to the system. Right now it looks like they may be testing the lines and cables with test gondolas.
Hello from Hollywood Studios! There’s a lot coming to this park between Star Wars: Galaxy Edge, a Lightning McQueen attraction, the first Mickey and Minnie focused attraction in Disney World, and the Skyliner Gondola system! See what we found in addition to all of these changes this week.
Look who we spotted — Mickey is all decked out in his birthday best for this 90th Birthday Celebration Plush. We saw him over his birthday weekend in November, then he “disappeared”. Now we’ve spotted him back in stock in Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs! Welcome back Mickey!
There’s a lot going on in Hollywood Studios! We collected all of the construction updates in one place. Before you even get in the park there’s a lot of construction to see between the new bus stations and Skyliner station.
There’s a Skyliner gondola in the station again! This gondola looks like it is more operational than the gondola we saw in the station last fall. Learn more about this new transportation option coming to Disney World this fall here.
