Disney Skyliner at Walt Disney World will be closing for a brief refurbishment in early 2022.

The gondola transportation system will be closed January 23 through January 28 2022. Bus service will be available at the resorts served by Disney Skyliner.

Disney Skyliner officially opened on September 29 2019, connecting Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot to four resort hotels - Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the new Disney’s Riviera Resort.

They’re going to dredge up RoA a third time??? If they’d just do the search correctly the first time…

For sure, all the good deals, greenlights for good balanced projects are going to Epic Universe's recruited. WDI is booked and done since we will get a new ride this year and Tron after they confirm where Hoffa's remains are.

God help us if WDI gets involved in any way. That 1 week will turn into 6 months and costs will skyrocket! 😂

Knowing Disney executive leadership of the current era, that is exactly why it will take an entire week!

Nah. Slap a sticker inside each and they're good. But I heard they will also add stickers with QR codes to purchase Disney+ and the Disney+ bundle, plus a donation QR code so you can donate directly to Disney in their time of need and dire financial straits. Rumor has it a short audio clip from Josh and Bob will play overhead, where they beg appeal to consumers to spend more and, if they are so inclined, to donate directly via the QR code.

It will take about a week to add QR code promos for purchasing Genie Plus.

They'll probably keep the stations for a while because they have bathrooms. :D

I heard a rumor that they are adding a speaker to all gondolas so they could play music by the super well-known pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo to the Skyliner.

I have to make sure my wife doesn't see this article or we will never see the inside of the Skyliner again.

Is it too late to add paid fast pass queues for park opening and closing?!

Well, I suppose a brief interruption in Skyliner service is preferable to a cable breaking unexpectedly... as just happened in Italy: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/may/23/at-least-eight-dead-in-italian-cable-car-accident
