PHOTOS: Siding Goes Up On Disney Skyliner Station at Epcot’s International Gateway, More Land Cleared

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The International Gateway station for the Disney Skyliner at Epcot is finally starting to look like the concept art. In the past week, a crane has gone up, lifting the siding onto the new building.

For reference, here’s the concept art for the station:

For whatever reason, more land is being cleared around the nicely manicured lawn just across the water.

The path of the Skyliner is off to the left of all this, so they may just be trying to even out the landscape by taking down these trees on the right.

The building being constructed just behind the pillars is for the Ratatouille attraction being built in the France pavilion of Epcot.

The Disney Skyliner has no announced opening date as of yet. To see the latest progress on some of the other stations and such, please check out our last report.

  • Haha, if they want that concept art to be more accurate they need to add about 200 sweaty tourists

  • That’s going to ruin my quick evening jaunts back into Epcot once it opens. I expect the international gateway to now be insanely crowded as those in the resorts it services choose to enter Epcot there. Sometimes progress is sad.

  • Visual intrusion is apparently not a concern any longer. That’s too bad. I know it is tight at that spot, but at a place that has so much space I can’t believe they couldn’t figure out a better route to get in and out of International Gateway and thru the resorts. Why not pull it closer to the side of Boardwalk? Certainly less noticeable over there than going right by the Eiffel tower. I’ll feel totally immersed in the Caribbean Beach experience right up until I look out of my water view room and see towers and gondolas going right down the middle of the lake. Illusion broken. They should’ve just used the Eiffel Tower as a support at this point.
