Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Walt Disney World Resort also has two water parks called Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach. With all of the Parks, Disney sees thousands of Guests daily.

Disney World is known for having hotels on-site so Guests can receive early admission to the Parks. In addition, Disney Park Guests can use Disney transportation to get to and from the Parks. Disney transportation includes Monorail, Buses, Ferries, Trams, and the Disney Skyliner.

The Disney Skyliner, uses a state-of-the-art gondola system and conveniently connects Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at EPCOT to the following Disney Resort hotels:

  • Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
  • Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
  • Disney’s Pop Century Resort
  • Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney uses these different types of transportation to help crowd control and wait times for Guests heading and returning from Parks.

In a Reddit Thread, one Guest spotted a wild animal that was left on the Skyliner.

This Guest wrote saying they found some Disney Magic on the skyliner.

Found some Disney Magic on the skyliner from WaltDisneyWorld

This Guest spotted a Fish inside the Disney Skyliner. Spotting fish at Disney is not uncommon if Guests are visiting EPCOT and viewing The Seas with Nemo and Friends, which is an aquarium that includes fish, sharks, sea turtles, jellyfish, and much more.

However, Guests finding a fish in the Skyliner is very uncommon. The Skyliner does not include water or near water as it travels in the sky.

So how would a fish find its way into the Skyliner? A Guest most likely brought it with them as a joke, or an animal left it there.

One Guest stated how slow the doors open and close and heard that a rat ran into one before:

“Honestly at slow times the doors are pretty open to the birds hopping around the station, crazy unlikely but possible! Heard of a rat going in one once”

What is the craziest thing you have spotted at Disney World?
