Disney Skyliner testing on the Epcot line

The Disney Skyliner has been under heavy daily testing on the Hollywood Studios line, and now testing is underway on the remainder of the system.

The Epcot line runs from Disney's Riviera Resort, past the turning station near to the Speedway Gas station, and then past the Boardwalk Resort into Epcot's International Gateway. This is the longest single journey possible on the Disney Skyliner, with a ride time of 9 minutes.

Like in the early days of the Hollywood Studios testing, the gondolas remain covered in protective wraps.

Testing is also underway on the line between Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Art of Animation.

Disney Skyliner is expected to open later this year, with an obvious goal of having the Hollywood Studios route operational for the debut of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at the end of August.
