The Disney Skyliner is set to officially open on September 29th, which means we are officially less than 2 months away from taking flight in these gondolas around the Walt Disney World Resort. We are still anticipating a potential soft opening of several of the Skyliner stations later this month, so we’ve been keeping an eye on the construction progress, and today we found some new signage installed at the Skyliner Station that sits in between Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

The bright blue, yellow, and red sign is on the entrance to the bridge from the Pop Century side of the Station. Whatever information is meant to be displayed here is still covered.

Walking over the bridge towards Art of Animation, and the construction site was very quiet today. The signs on the walls are very sun faded, but it’s almost time for them to come down anyway.

A couple gondolas were parked in the station.

And on the other side of the bridge, this is the signage installed on the Art of Animation side. The blue coloring fits well into the Finding Nemo themed buildings that are right next to the entrance to the bridge.

This signage getting installed is definitely exciting to see, as it means we are another step closer to getting to experience traveling across property in the Skyliner. It’s still going to be interesting to see how the whole no air-conditioning, passive ventilation is going to work out, but we’re another day closer to all melting together.

I’m nervous how this is going to work out from a loading/unloading perspective. With the sheer numbers of ECVs and guests requiring a little extra assistance, I have a feeling this is going to be frequently stopping and starting. I fully understand that they slow significantly in the station while detached from the haul line, but I can’t imagine that Disney would allow an ECV to attempt to load or unload when the cabin is moving at all – too much risk. And stopping in the station stops the line.

There are two different loading areas. The front one keeps moving. The back one can be brought to a complete stop.

There’s a separate track that the cabins are diverted to for loading ECV’s.
They won’t have to stop the line.

Nice to see the sign up, but the walls aren’t coming down yet. Not a good sign for the soft opening later this month.

I’d love to hear something official on the Skyliner’s hours of operation!
