Disney Skyliner Transportation System

This new 'gondola'-type system was announced at the 2017 D23 Expo. This excited new mode of transportation is set to open in the Fall of 2019!

The gondolas will have stations located at the International Gateway entrance of Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Pop Century, and Art of Animation with the hub being located at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Look at the proposed concept art map below to see how they will flow!

Iconic Disney characters will be displayed on the outside of select Disney Skyliner cabins giving the appearance of the character riding with guests.

“The design of the Disney Skyliner station at International Gateway at Epcot will be inspired by the park’s nearby European Pavilions and will be covered with metal and glass canopies, hand-painted murals and ornamental steel structures that harken back to the early 18th century Art Nouveau style. Guests traveling to Epcot via the Disney Skyliner will be welcomed to the park with a rare birds-eye view of World Showcase.”

“The Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station will be the hub of activity for Disney Skyliner. This station is inspired by the open air village marketplaces of the Caribbean and will showcase the nearby resort’s architectural detailing and color schemes. At this station, passengers will be able to transfer gondola routes to reach their destination, or are invited to sit and admire the waterfront resort setting.”

“The design style of the station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will fit with that of the park’s main entrance and bus stations. Passengers traveling here from the Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station can expect a new aerial perspective of the park’s iconic attractions, like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.”

“Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will share a Disney Skyliner station that feels whimsical and contextual with both resorts. Upon departing the gondola station, Skyliner passengers will ascend over Hourglass Lake and enjoy a panoramic view of these two colorful resorts.”

Cabins are going to slow down at the Disney Skyliner turn-station along Buena Vista Drive and guests will be able to see the mechanical and aerial elements that make up the Disney Skyliner.
