PHOTOS, VIDEO: Disney Skyliner Testing Underway at Epcot’s International Gateway

We’ve been following progress on the Disney Skyliner since its inception, and it’s come a long way since then!

With yesterday’s reveal of all 55 character gondola designs on the Disney’s Hollywood Studios line, it seems Disney is moving on to other lines along the Skyliner trajectory. Testing has resumed over on the Epcot line, which services Disney’s Riviera Resort and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, which will serve as the main hub between the Disney’s Hollywood Studios line and Art of Animation and Pop Century Resort lines.

We saw the first Skyliner gondola pop up at this station back in January, but now there are multiple gondolas out and making their way across the line.

Guests depart the International Gateway station, zooming up and over the FriendShip boats. We can’t wait to see some expansive views of Crescent Lake throughout the journey over to Disney’s Riviera Resort.

Guests will also be able to wave down at Remy as they zoom past the France Pavilion and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.

Check out testing in full swing at Epcot’s International Gateway in the video below!

While testing on the Epcot line is definitely an exciting update, it also begs the question of potential congestion at what will be the hub between the resorts and two theme parks: Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. While the Skyliner station there¬†does seem massive, there’s no denying that Skyliner presence and construction is already negatively impacting the guest experience at the resort.
