PHOTOS: Tall Supports Rise at Disney Skyliner Station in Hollywood Studios

A couple of weeks ago we showed you the Disney Skyliner construction progress going on at the various station sites throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  Today we’re going to show you some tall supports rising over at the Disney Skyliner station in Hollywood Studios.  In doing so we even get a better look at the inner-workings of the cable system that will be used for the Disney World Gondola once it’s up and running.

We again have to thank @bioreconstruct over on Twitter for the incredible shots.  Give him a follow as he is great for Disney Construction photos, especially the ones from the air!

Let’s see what’s going on at the Disney Skyliner station site outside Hollywood Studios.  Here you can see some massive support columns which will be part of the structure at the main station here.  Those columns are filled with steel rebar and are pretty heavy-duty.

Notice the difference from just 10 days ago:

Now very close to the Hollywood Studios Skyliner station you can get a look at some of the Skyliner support towers which will lead guests to the station.  Here a a couple of really good shots that give us a closer view of the inner-workings (or outer-workings) of the cable system mechanism the Disney Skyliner will run on:

Here’s an example of a similar tower from the ground level:

Meanwhile over at the Epcot Disney Skyliner Station, the pilings are no longer visible past the wall outside the International Gateway:

It’s nice to see things are moving along for the Skyliner.  Expect an opening date of Mid-2019, in time for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
