Today is the day you’ve all been waiting for: the official opening date of the Disney Skyliner! By this point, you may have already seen our video of the flight experience and read our full review of the fun yet terrifying new way to park hop, and all that’s left is for you to take a flight yourself.
Now this new transportation option has been a long time coming, and many folks along the way may have questioned the safety (and temperature) of the gondolas, should they break down on their lengthy journey across the resort. We don’t want it to happen, but we have to be prepared and reassured, right? Earlier this month we reported on the testing of the safety spiels and emergency stops, and back in June we spotted a water evacuation boat by one of the resort stations. Today, we’re able to look at the safety features in-flight.
If you’ve been on the Skyliner already, you may have noticed already that each gondola is equipped with a mysterious black emergency case under the seat. Today, we got a peek inside one of them, and can report on its contents. Let’s have a look, shall we?
Do note that these photos were submitted to us by readers. We do not recommend tampering with these emergency supply cases as the contents needs to remain intact in case of an actual emergency.
The kit includes a glow stick, lots of packs of drinking water, a notebook, and some, uh… waste disposal bags. So, the necessities, but hopefully nothing you’ll be needing to use on your next flight!
