Longtime readers of The Disney Weblog know I’ve been advocating for Walt Disney World to undertake the aerial tram, aka gondola, as a technique of transportation between its parks and resorts since 2013. That the primary system that providers two parks and 4 resort complexes is prepared already in testing with a plan to open later this yr, makes me very joyful.
Walt Disney World has lately launched some new particulars in regards to the Disney Skyliner gondolas together with our first good look contained in the visitor cabins with their picket benches and air flow. Within the video beneath, you get a sneak peak courtesy Walt Disney World Resort Senior Vice President Thomas Mazloum and Walt Disney Imagineering Principal Architect Dean Huspen.
When accomplished, the Disney Skyliner will join Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to 4 resort lodges, with stations at:
Disney’s Artwork of Animation Resort
Disney’s Pop Century Resort
Disney’s Caribbean Seashore Resort
Upcoming Disney’s Riviera Resort
Different particulars we realized this week:
When accomplished the Disney Skyliner system could have greater than 300 visitor cabins
Every cabin can accommodate as much as 10 visitors.
For these touring with wheelchairs or assistive gadgets, one of many benches will fold as much as make room within the cabin for many gadgets.
The system will present an amazing view from heights as excessive as 60 ft above the bottom. It’ll additionally skim simply above the water close to the Artwork of Animation station at a top of simply 15 ft.
It’ll journey at a pace of round 11 MPH
Whereas there isn’t any air-conditioning within the cabins, there may be air flow constructed into every automotive.
Regardless of the overwhelming majority of feedback I’ve seen in regards to the Disney Skyliner gondolas changing into ovens within the Florida solar and humidity, I’m not overly involved. I don’t assume the producer would promote Disney a unit it thinks wouldn’t carry out and may influence future gross sales.
Testing with precise people contained in the cabins is predicted to start quickly. Just a few fortunate forged members will get to be the primary to experience. The system is anticipate to open to visitors this fall.
Will you in line to experience the Disney Skyliner when it opens to visitors this fall?
