Disney Skyliner at Walt Disney World will be closing for a brief annual refurbishment in early 2024.

The gondola transportation system will be closed January 16 through January 21 2024. Disney Skyliner service to and from Disney's Riviera Resort and International Gateway at EPCOT will remain closed through January 27, 2024. Bus service will be available at the resorts served by Disney Skyliner.

Disney Skyliner closed for a similar amount of time in early 2022 and 2023, and reopened a few days ahead of schedule.

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.

It’s open

Check the thread, it’s open till 9pm. Lines are long.

Have you already gone to CBJ? Going there later? If so, could you post anything you know on that thread?

TouchdownJan 26, 2024

Will be heading that way soon, I’ll post once I get there.

Looks like the Epcot line has reopened early today, can anyone confirm?

And they commit to it very well. WDW sometimes will just scrap a refurb completely. Proactive vs reactive in many cases.

Oh I get why the whole line needs to be down, but the way it’s worded would lead you to believe that you can ride from Caribbean Beach to Epcot.

JoeCamelJan 24, 2024

Don't know but they are resplicing the cables or shortening them so it would follow the whole line is down

Strange way of wording that closure then - correct?

Sounds like the only lines up are CB to HS and CB to AoA/PC.

“From January 16, 2024 through January 21, 2024, Disney Skyliner will be closed for routine maintenance. Disney Skyliner service to and from Disney’s Riviera Resort and International Gateway at EPCOT will remain closed through January 27, 2024. “ So is the skyliner running to Epcot and just not stopping at Riviera? Or is the entire line from Riviera to Epcot not operating? I’m a bit confused.
