Additionally, a Disney representative told the outlet that no one was injured in the situation that resulted in a couple hours of downtime. An explanation of what happened and why, or what may be done to prevent future incidents of this nature, was not offered.
After the accident, guests who remained inside gondolas stuck between Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort were slowly offloaded at the latter station. Some guests spent over an hour inside suspended gondolas as the situation played out.
By 8:45pm, roughly two hours after the accident occurred, the Skyliner station was operational and guests were boarding gondolas destined for Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort as usual.
