Disney has confirmed today in the Orlando Sentinel what we basically saw for ourselves this weekend at the D23 Destination D event: the Disney Skyliner Gondolas will NOT have air conditioning on board.
This was visible from the stage when Bob Chapek showed off the first Disney Skyliner Gondola cars, and instead of air conditioning, they will be equip with a natural ventilation (aka the slits in the sides of the gondolas which open and close.
“a Walt Disney World spokeswoman confirmed that the gondolas would not have AC. The cabins were ‘specifically tailored to provide a comfortable ride for our guests in the Florida climate,’ she said. The units will use cross-ventilation for sufficient air flow and reflective windows to prevent direct sunlight’, she said.”
There has been lots of bash-lash over this issue and while it seems impossible for the Disney Skyliner to run in Central Florida without air conditioning, Disney imagineers are sure that the ventilation provides will be more than enough.
I want to know what you think about NO Air Conditioning on Disney Skyliner Gondolas…
- Is Disney making a mistake by not including air conditioning in the Disney Skyliner??
