Disney Skyliner Transportation System stations revealed
The Disney Skyliner transportation system will be an exciting new way for guests to travel from on-site Disney World resorts to their favorite park. This new gondola system will feature a variety of stations located at various spots throughout Walt Disney World, including Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the International Gateway at Epcot and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
Disney revealed concept artwork for all three of these stations today, beginning with the station that will be located at the International Gateway at Epcot. The stations design will be inspired by the nearby European Pavilions at Epcot, and will feature metal and glass canopies, hand-painted murals and ornamental steel structures that harken back to the early 18th century Art Nouveau style. Also, guests riding the Skyliner will have a great view of the World Showcase while traveling aboard the gondolas.
The Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station will be themed after the open air village marketplaces of the Caribbean, and will reflect the major changes coming to the resort over the next few years.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios station will match the entrance to the park with a fantastic view of the parks iconic Hollywood Tower Hotel, or better known as the Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror.
Although no concept artwork was released, Disney did mention that the gondola station located at Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will feel “whimsical and contextual with both resorts.”
Each gondola will be themed after different Disney characters and attractions, such as the Hitchhiking Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion, Belle and the Beast and Captain America.
