Disney Skyliner Refurbishment Coming in 2022

From time to time the Walt Disney World transportation systems need maintenance and Disney has just announced that the Disney Skyliner will be briefly closing in January 2022 for a small refurbishment.

Thankfully, guests won’t have to do without it for very long. The Disney Skyliner will be closed from January 23 through January 28, 2022. This will only affect the EPCOT/Riviera/Caribbean Beach line.

The newest transportation system in Disney World has had a couple of notable accidents since opening in 2019 though it is not known if this is reason for a refurbishment. You can read our post about the Disney Skyliner accidents for more details on exactly what happened on those occasions.

Disney has also not yet mentioned what exactly they are doing to the Skyliner.

The Disney Skyliner connects guests in 4 resort hotels to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Disney Skyliner hotels include Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

Guest staying in these resorts can use bus transportation or the Friendship Boats to get to their destination.

Stay tuned as we will have more on the Skyliner refurbishment soon. In the meantime, check out our Complete Guide to the Disney Skyliner where we explain more about this incredible way to get around Disney World.
