The Disney Skyliner Reopens Back Towards Full Operation With Modified Hours

After the incident that happened over a week ago towards the Disney Skyliner at the Riviera station at Walt Disney World, Disney has officially announced that the Skyliner is back up for full operation. After numerous hours of testing with the manufacturing company of Dopplemayr in a complete review as both Disney and Dopplemayr have made some adjustments towards the process and training.

The incident happened on Saturday, October 5th, 2019 that had couple of gondola cabins stacked up against each other with no real life threatening injuries towards the guests that were inside of the cabins.

Starting today, guests can travel the Disney Skyliner from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. However Disney did say updates will begin later this week and will result in modified operating hours for October 16th-18th.

  • Oct. 16:  The Disney Hollywood Studios line will be closed while the other two lines will be available from 1 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.
  • Oct. 17-18: All lines will be open from 1 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

This will be similar towards the ski lift systems, as the Skyliner may slow or come to some stops during the ride duration, particularly when accommodating other guests who need extra time loading into the cabin.

As it’s been reported before hand that the Skyliner connects towards Walt Disney World’s two theme parks towards Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Four on-site resort hotels at; Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort (and the forthcoming Disney’s Riviera Resort, a Disney Vacation Club resort set to open Dec. 16, 2019).

As this incident for Disney has been a big learning curve and it’s good to see things back in order to see “magic in the sky!”.
