We’ve been following the Disney Skyliner project for some time now and seeing towers, stations and cables going up all around Walt Disney World over the past year. Now today at the D23 Destination D event Disney showed off a first look at the Disney Skyliner Gondola Cars which will be transporting guests around the Walt Disney World Resort.
Here is a video of Bob Chapek making the announcement:
I have to say they look pretty slick! Special gondola cars are going to have different characters on them from the Fab Five to Star Wars to Marvel, etc. This one features Pluto:
Notice Chip and Dale on the back of this one:
As you can see they are a very sleek and modern looking design. Most notably there is no air conditioning either, so that should be put to bed now. One thing is sure though, the Disney Skyliner is going to offer some amazing views of Walt Disney World that you’ve never seen before. That should lead to some great photo opportunities!
We can’t wait to see what other characters are going to be included in the Disney Skyliner Gondola Cars!
Read our Disney Skyliner Gondola guide for more info including wait times, maps, the route and capacity of the gondolas.
