How do you navigate Disney’s Skyliner System? In September 2019, Walt Disney World opened their Skyliner transportation system. The Skyliner was met with skepticism and a few hiccups along the way but has ultimately been a very successful way to transport guests and has improved Disney’s transportation system.  

What is the Skyliner? 

Disney’s Skyliner is similiar to a Gondola system. The Skyliner is very efficient at getting a large number of guests between two points and it’s very eco-friendly. 

Disney designed the Skyliner to travel between Epcot and Hollywood Studios and a few Disney resorts.  There are two Skyliner “lines” and a central hub at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.  The hub at Caribbean Beach serves as the connector or transfer stations between the two lines. One line travels from Hollywood Studios to Disney’s Caribbean Beach, the central hub. The other line travels from Epcot to Disney’s Riveria Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

How Does the Skyliner Work? 

The Skyliner system is a very easy system to navigate. When you approach each station, there will be a sign clarifying the destination of the skyliner and where the line begins. Once you get to the front of the line, the Skyliner slows down for you to board. 

Disney also went to great lengths to make sure disabled individuals could ride the Skyliner too.  At each station, there is a separate handicap line. The Skyliner bucket will come through a special track and come to a complete stop. 

Tip: You can roll aSingle Stroller directly into the Skyliner bucket. If you have a double stroller, I would recommend you fold it up. Double strollers may or may not fit in the Skyliner bucket, it’s close! A double stroller like this would be perfect for your Disney vacation!
