Disney Skyliner Gondola Network enters early testing

I feel contractually obligated to share every bit of Disney Skyliner news with you dear readers. But I try to limit myself to the big landmarks. For instance, this week the Gondola guest cabins made their first test run between Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Walt Disney World is building this state-of-the-art gondola network to transport guests beginning later this fall. It will provide a unique aerial perspective for travel between Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot stopping along the way at four resort hotels — Disney’s Art of Animation and Disney’s Pop Century, plus Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the still under construction 15th Disney Vacation Club property – Disney’s Riviera Resort.

This first test was just a simple run across Victory Way, which separates Disney’s Hollywood Studios from Caribbean Beach Resort. As testing continues more and more gondolas will be added to the line and cycling through the system. Later there will be cast member training before opening to the public this fall.
