PHOTOS: Disney Skyliner Epcot Line Resumes Motion Facilitating Faster Evacuation Procedure

An accident on the Disney Skyliner tonight has led to multiple gondola pile-ups at the Riviera Resort station, as well as a full stop of various affected Skyliner lines.

Guests are currently being evacuated either via cherry pickers or via lines that have since resumed motion, and then being transported via resort bus or complimentary Minnie Van to their respective locations.

(Do note that some lines have also stopped again since publish time.)

We will keep you updated as more on this breaking story becomes available. Disney reports that no guests were injured in the accident.

If you’re new to the Disney Skyliner system, it opened just this past Sunday, September 29th to mixed reviews. Early images of inside emergency black box kits revealed that the kits contained glow sticks, packaged water, and human waste containers.

  1. They forgot to include tissues in the emergency kits. Either for crying or to use along with the human waste containers.

    1. You mean that sometimes things happen but the whole system shouldn’t be judged based on one incident? I do feel like there will be several people who are going to see dollar signs in their eyes, though. Would they do the same thing at a ski resort if this same situation happened there?

      1. I’ve skied all over the west for years and years and never had a gondola stop for more than 10 minutes, even with blizzard conditions, 40 mph wind gusts at 13,000 feet, 5° F. They are so lucky this happened at night, otherwise heat stroke would’ve been a very real occurrence.

  2. I guess that when the line stopped abruptly, the cars crashed into each other at the station. They could tie some old tires on the cars to prevent damage if this happens again. Kinda like a tug boat.
