Skyliner Update

Recommended Posts

https://www.inquisitr.com/4843357/updated-look-at-skyliner-construction-at-walt-disney-world-towers-go-up-near-hollywood-studios-photos/

 

New photos are popping up to show a great deal of progress and towers are starting to lift high into the sky already.

The new gondola system doesn’t yet have an opening date, but it is expected to begin operation sometime in 2019. As originally reported by Disney Parks Blog, the transportation system will connect Disney’s Art of Animation, Caribbean Beach, and Pop Century Resorts directly to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the back of Epcot.

 

There are a lot of different projects going on around Walt Disney World, and that may make it difficult for guests to keep up on all of them. While going around property, guests are able to see that work on the Skyliner is really coming along and it will be only a matter of time until they are traveling through the air.

Over on Twitter, the always informative user @bioreconstruct has put up some new looks at how construction on the Skyliner is progressing. Some of the most noticeable things are the towers up near Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Seeing as how Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort isn’t far away from Hollywood Studios, the Skyliner will connect it to the two parks. It’s hard to pinpoint the work at CBR as the entire resort is undergoing a lot of work right now.

When looking at the area from high above, almost all of the Skyliner coverage can be seen.

Saw a few of these in the parking lot, and an entire line of them going thru a clearance in the woods heading towards Caribbean resort this past Saturday.

There is still no opening date set for the Skyliner being built at Walt Disney World, but if you’ve seen the construction, you realize they are working fast on it. Let’s take a look at the progress going on with the station and towers over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

As guests may now know, the Skyliner will be a gondola transportation system which will take you to different parks and resorts. There will be stops for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and the new Disney’s Riviera Resort (DVC).

There are reported plans to have it open and operating by sometime in 2019, and construction is coming along rather quickly. Let’s look at how things are going with the Skyliner loading station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Looking into the sky and out through the parking lot at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can also see the towers which will carry the gondolas from place to place. Looking in this direction, it is heading toward Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.

Caribbean Beach is getting the Riviera DVC resort. 

Coronado Springs tower is more geared towards the convention scene. Coronado is a convention resort already. 

Thank you.

Here’s another...lol.  Why does the carousel have a funky surround?

 I'm trying to envision this when you're driving around the area with all these lines/cars overhead.  Going to be interesting!

Especially if it breaks down.....

I am finding that the level of visible construction across the resort areas is very distracting.  I do not think I would stay at any of the related resorts - especially not at the price per room.  On our January trip, the entrance to the Coronado Springs was a construction site and a huge crane.  Not exactly the "welcome home" i would expect....
