Exciting news! Disney has started testing the Disney Skyliner gondolas, bringing the opening date closer and closer.
If you have been to Disney World over the past year then you have seen the Skyliner construction going on, it’s hard to miss. With each new stage it’s bringing guests closer to being able to ride this new transportation system.
When the Disney Skyliner opens later this year it will connect Hollywood Studios and Epcot to the Art of Animation Resort, Pop Century Resort, Caribbean Beach Resort, and the Riviera Resort (opening later this year). The gondola stations have been visible for some time now and the towers have been up for a while, so it’s been interesting to watch the progress.
Check out the video Disney released about the testing of the gondolas.
Not only did Disney share a video of the testing, but they included information about the designs on the gondolas. Many of the gondolas will have different Disney characters on them.
