Up, Up and Away! Disney World to Debut New Skyliner Transport

A new era will take flight at the Orlando theme park beginning Sept. 29.


This fall, Disney's newest form of transportation will take to the skies over Orlando.

The Walt Disney World Skyliner will debut on Sept. 29. Accommodating up to 10 passengers per car, the brightly colored gondolas will send guests gliding along treetops, connecting Disney's Hollywood Studios and the international gateway at Epcot to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Art of Animation Resort, Pop Century Resort and the new Riviera Resort opening in December. 

Skyline-goers will also enjoy access to Disney’s Boardwalk entertainment district, convention hotels and dining locations — including those at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Beach Club Resort and the Boardwalk Inn. Guests residing at any of the resort hotels across the theme park will be able to hop on and off as they wish. 

In true Disney fashion, the gondolas will be adorned with iconic characters from the brand's films and attractions.
