UPDATE: The Disney Parks Blog has published this statement regarding the reopening of the Disney Skyliner:
We know many of you have been looking for an update on Disney Skyliner and are glad to share that it has reopened to guests today. Following a complete review with the manufacturer, we’ve made adjustments to our processes and training, and we are improving how we communicate with guests during their flight with Disney Skyliner. We again offer our deepest apologies to the guests impacted by the malfunction that resulted in extended operating delays on Oct. 5.
After experiencing a system malfunction on October 5, 2019, the Disney Skyliner has remained closed for nine days but will resume modified operations today.
The Skyliner gondolas have been spotted over the weekend moving and testing throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
The Disney Skyliner will be open from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. but system updates later this week will result in the following modified operating hours:
- October 16: The Disney Hollywood Studios line will be closed while the other two lines will be available from 1 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
- October 17-18: All lines will be open from 1 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
