Walt Disney World’s new gondola system is going to make its first test runs! The Disney Skyliner will officially open later this year, connecting the Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme parks, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort hotels.
As Theme Park Insider reports, the initial testing of the gondola system would begin this month despite more work remaining, including finishing the stations and applying the graphics that will decorate each gondola with characters from various Disney animation and live-action franchises.
The Skyliner gondola system will provide additional capacity for moving guests in and out of Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as Disney is continuously adding popular new attractions at both resorts, including ‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’ at Hollywood Studios this fall and the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster’ that’s presently under construction in Epcot and hasn’t revealed its opening date yet.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, officially Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Worldwide and informally known as Disney Parks, was one of The Walt Disney Company’s four major business segments and was founded in 1971, following the opening of Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida just outside of Orlando Florida.
