The First Disney Skyliner Has Arrived!

Updated: Jun 9, 2019

Who is excited for Walt Disney World‘s newest upcoming form of transportation, The Disney Skyliner?  This system of Gondolas connecting guests at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Pop Century Resort and Caribbean Beach Resort with both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios was announced last summer at the D23 Expo!  With no opening date announced yet, the only look into this new transport system has been the construction of the large support pylons!

But today, several Disney fans spotted the very first Gondola making its way to Disney property!  Instagram user thetinycraftist_art spotted the protective plastic flying off a large object on the highway and snapped this photo!    

Shortly after, Twitter user @kono_in_Orlando spotted the same Gondola and was able to snap several great shots!  Many people have commented that the cars are much smaller than they were anticipating.  It appears about 4 guests could fit (somewhat snuggly) in each car.  As previously announced, each car will have characters on the outside.  Everything from Mickey and Minnie to the Hitchhiking Ghosts!
