Walt Disney World’s Disney Skyliner Will Not Have Air Conditioning

We have been announcing details around the new Disney Skyliner coming to Walt Disney World as soon as we hear them.  We recently posted a look at the gondolas as well as a confirmation that the Disney Skyliner is expected to open for guests in fall of 2019.  We have also learned another critical fact about this new gondola system.  It has been confirmed that the Disney Skyliner will not have air conditioning.  There will be a cross-ventilation system that will provide air flow in the gondolas to keep guests comfortable but there will not be air conditioning.  There will also be reflective windows to prevent direct sunlight onto the guests inside the gondola.

The Disney Skyliner is expected to be an amazing way to travel to different locations around Walt Disney World.  This new gondola system will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort.  Select gondolas will have iconic Disney characters in the exterior design of the vehicles.  The design will look like a popular Disney character is riding along with them.  There will be a variety of different characters from the different films, attractions and cartoons.

How do you all feel about no air conditioning on the Disney Skyliner?

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!
