UPDATE: Disney Skyliner Gondola System to Remain Closed at Walt Disney World for Undetermined Period Following Accident
In the wake of last night’s gondola accident and subsequent guest evacuations, it appears that the Disney Skyliner gondola system will remain closed until further notice.
Cast Members are informing guests at the gate to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort that the transportation system is currently down for the day, but that there is the bus service to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot available.
Disney Security is currently posted at all Skyliner entrances and areas to prevent guests from meandering into stations, as they are likely under investigation given last night’s accident.
At Epcot, signage is displayed showing that the Skyliner is “temporarily unavailable”, directing guests to take a bus or boat to their respective hotels and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or otherwise take the existing walking path between the two resorts.
