WDW Skyliner To Open Fall 2019

Those who have been anxiously awaiting the new transportation options at Walt Disney WOrld will be happy to hear that the state-of-the-art gondola transportation system connecting Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney Pop Century, and Art of Animation along with Disney Riviera Hotel is set to begin transporting guests in Fall of 2019.

For now thought the work continues, somewhat disrupting the flow at DHS. The walk to the buses is quite a hike. I admit that the closer this gets the more curious I am about it. I'm still not sure I could ride without having a panic attack, but the thought of getting some new angles on Disney photography is tempting.

Will this new transportation system make a difference for you?

We're staying at Caribbean Beach in June and rumors had been pointing to a spring 2019 release. Bummer! Would have loved to try it out but there's always next trip!

This incident at Sea World San Diego does not calm my fear of heights, nor does it boost my confidence in me getting on Disney's Skyliner. I've really been trying to talk myself into riding the Skyliner so that I can better blog about it. Face my fears and all that. I think this set me back a bit.

Ah yeah, NOPE. Nope nope nope. I would have had a stroke myself dangling from a harness.. There ain't no way I would have stepped out of that thing. Bring me a bucket, food and water thanks Bob...

I'm super excited about the gondolas. Benn is...um...less excited than I am.

Hey JoAnn! I was just looking at your ticker. I think we almost ended up on the same Alaskan cruise, but I couldn't get the return flight to work out for Benn to get back to work in time. That's why we took Bermuda instead.
