PHOTOS: Construction Walls Come Down Revealing International Gateway Disney Skyliner Station

With all 55 character gondola designs on the Disney’s Hollywood Studios line revealed and Skyliner testing taking place on the Epcot line earlier last week, it seems the Skyliner project is moving full steam ahead!

The walls surrounding the International Gateway Skyliner Station have now officially come down, offering guests a full view of the station’s gorgeous design and interior.

The station seems to glisten and glow in the afternoon light. We weren’t expecting it to look this good.

Only hedges line the area now.

Gondola testing had ended for the day, but we’ve already seen those making their way down the line.

You can see the ramp where guests can enter the Skyliner station over on the left. An awning structure will hold guests as they wait to board. There’s a similar outlined structure on the right, where guests will likely exit the station.

This is meant to be one of the smaller stations, with the Epcot Skyliner line servicing Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort. Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will serve as the main hub between the Disney’s Hollywood Studios line and Art of Animation and Pop Century Resort lines.

The Disney Skyliner is set to open this Fall. To accommodate for the increased traffic flow of guests through the International Gateway (thanks in part to the Skyliner and Galaxy’s Edge), the entire International Gateway entrance is undergoing an expansion, with temporary entrances installed and in place throughout the expansion.

We’ll keep you updated on the Disney Skyliner as the project nears completion!

Any idea if they are going to create a path AROUND the outside of epcot to the monorail? If you don’t have a park hopper ticket and want to get to Magic Kingdom, there doesn’t seem to be a way from the IG skyliner station to the monorail.

I don’t think Skyliner to Monorail to Magic Kingdom will be any kind of official route. Magic Kingdom would still be a bus from any of the resorts on the Skyliner line.

There are no plans to that i know of. As a friendship boat cast member there are plenty of other means of transportation that dont include the skyliner. I doubt they will ever add a sidewalk outside of the park

That would not be possible given the topography. This is no where near the monorail station. You would still need to bus to the magic kingdom.

Yes, all stations except Riviera have a separate boarding area for wheelchairs and ecv’s, where the cabins come to a full stop for boarding. Seats in the cabins will likely fold up to make space for a wheelchair.

I’m hoping those square holes in the pavement are for up lights. That would look very cool as the cabins pass over them on their way in and out of the station.
