The first Disney Skyliner gondola tower is now up near Epcot's World Showcase.

Located just outside the park at the International Gateway, the tower will bring in guests from nearby Walt Disney World Resort hotels directly to the new Skyliner station being built at the World Showcase entrance to the park.

Not enough guests were willing to $$$ for park to park transportation

Tha That is some ugly stuff, wasn't that part of why they stopped the park to park vans?

No inside intel here, but I suppose it’s also possible that they could utilize Avenue of the Stars out near bus parking as well.

We used the Skyliner for the first time. It was great. We left DHS and took it to the EPCOT IG so that we could walk around the boardwalk and have dinner at Cape May Cafe. Then we took it back as our car was still at DHS. A lot of fun, larger than I expected, and the views around sunset were awesome.

isn't there planned maintenance for the Skyliner coming up? I would imagine this plan would be needed to deal get ready for extended down time. (then maybe kept the plan for any down time).

The Starcruiser bus is only used for an hour every other day. Just saying.

If they use the Harry Potter train no one will see the backstage areas. I'm sure that's it.
