This state-of-the-art gondola system first opened in 2019 and has since provided guests with a unique and unforgettable way to travel between various Disney destinations within the resort.

The Skyliner offers stunning views and a smooth ride, allowing guests to soar above the bustling crowds and immerse themselves in the beauty of the resort.
