The Disney Skyliner Transportation System is Now Open at the Walt Disney World Resort

We are so excited to hear that the Disney Skyliner transportation system has officially opened. The new magic in the skies can be found at the Walt Disney World Resort. The official dedication was held September 29, 2019, at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. The dedication was hosted by Disney executives as well as selected cast members. The new transportation system will be complimentary.

The day’s festivities honored the “most magical flight on Earth” and featured fireworks, Disney characters, and more. Take a look at the video released by Disney to see the fun.

The Disney Skyliner will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four Disney resort hotels–Disney’s Art of Animation, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort (scheduled to open mid-December 2019). The system will fly guests through the air aboard approximately 300 gondolas–many of which are wrapped in beloved Disney characters, fan-favorite movies, theme park attractions, and more.

While you ride in the Disney Skyliner, you will be treated to fantastic views of the Walt Disney World Resort as never seen before. You will float along the treetops and waterways and be provided with a bird’s-eye view of famous Walt Disney World Theme Park icons such as Epcot’s Space Ship Earth and Disney’s Hollywood Studio’s Hollywood Tower Hotel.
