Walt Disney World is showing off its new Disney Skyliner, providing a first official look inside the gondolas that will start carrying guests across the resort later this year.
The Doppelmayr gondola system will connect Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot, as well as at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and the upcoming Disney's Riviera Resort. Disney's new promo video shows off the interior of the gondolas and explains how the cartoon images on the outside will help shield the passengers from the Central Florida sun, while the ventilation slats that run the width of the gondolas will keep air moving briskly through them as they glide above the resort.
Disney has not yet announced an opening date for the system, other than to say it will be operational for guests by the end of the year. The new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land opens August 29 at Disney's Hollywood Studios, so that's probably a good benchmark for when Disney would like to have all systems available to be able to move people to and from that park as quickly as possible. We've got a thread going on the Discussion Forum detailing known and expected opening dates for all current major developments at the Walt Disney World Resort, if you'd like to follow that.
