work has started preparing the construction sites for the new Disney Skyliner – a gondola transportation system that will connect EPCOT to Disney’s Hollywood Studios along with Disney’s Pop Century, Disney’s Art of Animation and Disney’s Caribbean Beach.
The system consists of 3 separate lines that all converge at the Caribbean Beach Resort ‘hub’. Guests will be able to change cabins there and continue onto their destination.
So when does the Skyliner open?
No official date has been given yet, but expect it to be either late 2018 or early 2019. Gondola systems are relatively quick to built (6 to 10 months), but Disney being Disney goes the extra mile by theming the stations, which will take a little longer.
Definitely in time to welcome new crowds to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
