BREAKING: Disney Skyliner Reopens With Modified Hours This Week

It’s been over a week since the Disney Skyliner closed after an accident which led to an extensive, system-wide evacuation. Today, the Skyliner will be reopening, with limited, modified hours later on in the week for system updates.

Beginning today, Guests may travel aboard Disney Skyliner from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. However, system updates later this week will result in the following modified operating hours for Oct. 16-18:

  • Oct. 16: The Disney Hollywood Studios line will be closed while the other two lines will be available from 1 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
  • Oct. 17-18: All lines will be open from 1 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

Across various Skyliner resorts, signage is out to inform guests that the form of transportation is now open and running again:

At Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

At the Disney Skyliner station located in Hourglass Lake in between Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

Signage by Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station reminding guests that “Similar to other gondola systems around the world, flights aboard the Disney Skyliner may occasionally be interrupted with stops and delays.”

We’ll continue updating as further details are released regarding the reopening of the Disney Skyliner.
