As we reported recently, testing of Walt Disney World’s new transportation system, Disney Skyliner, has begun. Today, Disney released the first official images of a Skyliner gondola in action, as it traveled between Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, which will serve as the hub of the system, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
The Skyliner system is slated to begin operations this fall. It will connect the Studios with Epcot, as well as four Walt Disney World Resort hotels: the Art of Animation, Pop Century, Caribbean Beach and the soon-to-open Disney’s Riviera Resort.
As part of the test runs, still-wrapped Skyliner gondolas traveled to the hub station at Caribbean Beach, across Victory Way, to the station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and back again.
According to Walt Disney Imagineering more gondolas will soon be added to the line, while testing and training continues. The cabins remain covered during testing now, but will eventually reveal a variety of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars character designs.
We’re getting really anxious try this new transportation option! Let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
