Disney offers more details on 'Skyliner' system for theme parks

- Disney is offering a little more information on the planned “Skyliner” gondola system that will transport tourists between parks and resorts, but still aren’t offering an opening date.

Over the summer, the Disney Parks Blog shared some drawings of what the skycabs might look like.  Now, publicists are showing what the stations will look like, and more details about where they will be.

According to the park, there will be stations at Epcot’s International Gateway, the Caribbean Beach Resort, and Hollywood Studios. 

The Pop Century Resort and Art of Animation Resort will share another station. Departing cabs will climb over Hourglass Lake and offer a panoramic view of the two resorts.

The Caribbean Beach Resort station will also serve as a hub with transfers between gondola routes.

Finally, there will be a turn station along Buena Vista Drive, “where guests can see the mechanical and aerial components that make up the Disney Skyliner,” the blog offered.

Drawings shared by Disney show the stations mimicking the look and feel of their parent parks and resorts.  The skycabs, which Disney calls “cabins,” appear to have “iconic Disney characters” pained outside “to give the appearance that a Disney pal is riding along with guests,” the blog added.

Disney has not yet shared an opening date for the system.
