This change effectively raises the Skyliner’s capacity. Cast Members aren’t even asking guests if they’re comfortable riding with another party. With the fast-moving nature of boarding the Disney Skyliner, you’ll need to speak up sooner rather than later if you don’t want to share.
One gondola can fit about 10 guests (fewer if there is a wheelchair or ECV). Rarely will a gondola actually be filled to capacity, however. Gondolas do also have openings so fresh air circulates.
