A peek at Disney Skyliner Vehicles

Call me a dork, but I have a bit of a fascination with Disney transportation systems — specifically, how they manage to move so many people. So in July of 2017, when Disney announced the Disney Skyliner project, I was pretty intrigued.

Not only would Disney Skyliner offer some form of special transportation to resorts that aren't situated on the monorail or a body of water (including — for the first time — not one but two Disney Value resorts), it would also bring back a little piece of my childhood. My first trip to Walt Disney World was in August of 1986. I didn't return until January of 2002. I was pretty disappointed to find that the Skyway had disappeared. Disney Skyliner is bringing that back.

Well, I was over-the-top excited when they revealed one of the vehicles! Check out the video below to see what those vehicles will look like.

Disney Skyliner will offer transportation with a bird's-eye view of portions of the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Disney Skyliner stations are currently under construction and will be offered at Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort (while I'm thrilled to see two value resorts getting an extra amenity, I fully expect 2019 rates to reflect that extra amenity. That's just my own gut feeling - I have no inside information or gossip to lead me to that belief), Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and Disney Riviera Resort (a new Disney Vacation Club property announced on July 15, 2017).

Disney has been providing updates about the new transportation system scheduled to open in the fall of 2019.

What are your thoughts about the Skyliner transportation system?
