Walt Disney World's new gondola system is making its first test runs.
The Disney Skyliner will open later this year, connecting the Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios theme parks with the Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and the Disney's Riviera Resort hotels.
We told you late last year that the Doppelmayr gondola system would begin initial testing this month. But much more work remains, including finishing the stations and applying the graphics that will decorate each gondola with characters from various Disney animation and live-action franchises. Here's the latest video update from Disney:
The Skyliner system will provide additional capacity for moving guests into and out of Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, as Disney adds 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 now under construction in Epcot for an as-yet-unrevealed opening date.Tweet
