News is running fast today with Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Bob Chapek announcing that the Disney Skyliner Gondolas are opening in Fall 2019 at Walt Disney World.
This new transportation system will bring guests between Epcot, Hollywood Studios and 4 of the resort hotels (Pop Century, Art of Animation, Riviera Resort and Caribbean Beach Resort) for this first phase of the Disney Skyliner system.
We just saw the first cables being strung for the Disney Skyliner and we had previously heard Mid-2019 for an opening date, but Disney must see some potential issues to work out and wants to make sure everything is up and running correctly so that the Skyliner is ready for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Late 2019. I’m ok with a small delay if it means they are going to get the Disney Skyliner right. This is a hugely important piece of the transportation puzzle in Walt Disney World, and if successful will be expanded throughout more of the Resort.
Bob Chapek also showed a first look at the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster ride vehicles today which will allow for unique stortytelling opportunities within the attraction.
Stay tuned for more info on when the Disney Skyliner Gondolas are opening as more comes out…
