Disney Skyliner Launches September 29th

It’s official: the Disney Skyliner gondola network will open Sunday, September 29th.  Three lines will connect the Trinidad hub with terminals at Epcot, Pop Century/Art of Animation and Hollywood Studios.  The launch falls just one month after the highly anticipated grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios on August 29th.


Recent photos show finishing touches like landscaping and painting underway in advance of the opening.

The upcoming Riviera Resort will follow with an opening on December 16th.  This new Disney Vacation Club flagship features its own Skyliner angle station along the Epcot line.  It’s unclear whether cabin doors will open at this station for the approximately two months between the Skyliner and Riviera openings.

After more than two years of construction, it’s so exciting to learn we are just 76 days away from the public debut of America’s most innovative lift system.  There is a lot we know about it and a lot we still do not, so I’m looking forward to checking it out and reporting myself this fall.

    What a beautiful lift system. Three stages, all one haul rope as I understand.
