There’s now a new way for your clients to easily get around Walt Disney World Resort—soaring above the treetops on the new Disney Skyliner, which sets off on Sept. 29, 2019.

The complimentary transportation system, Disney Skyliner, will soar above waterways and wooded areas on its way to theme parks and Disney resort hotels. Disney Skyliner guests will discover bird’s-eye views of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Approaches to Epcot are equally eye-catching, as the countries around World Showcase Lagoon come into view with iconic Spaceship Earth in the distance.

This new transportation system connects Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the new Disney’s Riviera Resort, a Disney Vacation Club resort that will open Dec. 16, 2019 featuring approximately 300 vacation homes, including various accommodation types, which will be available for traditional hotel reservations.

Nearly half of the approximately 300 Disney Skyliner cabins will be wrapped in whimsical Disney scenes showcasing beloved characters, fan-favorite movies, attractions and more.

In addition to theme park access, guests staying at Disney resort hotels that are accessible by Disney Skyliner will have quick-and-easy transportation to a world of dining and entertainment options. These include the Disney’s BoardWalk entertainment district, access to Epcot through the International Gateway station, and restaurants and recreation found at the resort hotels serviced by Disney Skyliner.

The artful stations along the Disney Skyliner route will feature uniquely Disney designs that reflect their surroundings:

  • The Epcot International Gateway station is inspired by the nearby European pavilions in the park. Covered metal and glass canopies, hand-painted murals themed to flight and ornate metal detailing are all in the Art Nouveau style.
  • The Disney’s Riviera Resort station incorporates influences from the Mediterranean coast to produce an elegant portal for guests.
  • The station at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort connects all three routes and extends the architectural details and bright island colors associated with the Caribbean.
  • The Disney’s Hollywood Studios station reflects the Art Decostyle of the park’s main entrance area. Guests arriving on Disney Skyliner will be able to take in a panoramic view of the park unfolds.
  • Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort share a Disney Skyliner station at Hourglass Lake. Departing the station, guests will glide above Hourglass Lake and ascend to views of both resort hotels.

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co., the official specialty coffee of Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disney Vacation Club, will welcome guests with a quick-service location adjacent to the station at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. The menu of coffees, pastries and specialty items will include the new “Toffee Flight Latte” found initially only at the station. The latte blends sea salt caramel toffee and dark chocolate, topped with toffee and chocolate crumbles and a cloud of whipped cream.
