Walt Disney World’s Disney Skyliner Gondolas Make First Test Runs on Routes

We are so anxious for the Disney Skyliner to officially open to guests this year.  We learned from Disney Parks Blog that the new gondola system has reached another major milestone that get us closer to checking this out firsthand.  The first guest cabins have begun to make test runs between Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  The Disney Skyliner is expected to officially open to guests sometime this fall, but it is exciting to know that testing is underway.  The system will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort.

Here is a look at the gondola in action:

Disney Skyliner guest cabins make test runs back-and-forth between Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Per Disney Parks Blog, the test-run gondolas recently traveled across Victory Way between the stations at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Walt Disney Imagineering associate project manager Steve Pratt told the Disney Parks Blog that soon there will be more gondolas added and cycling on the line as teams continue testing and training.  The gondolas have remained covered during the testing, but we can’t wait to check out the expected graphics on them like the ones pictured below:

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
