The Disney Skyliner International Gateway line has reopened from its refurbishment ahead of schedule.

The gondola transportation system was planned to be closed for five days from January 23 through January 28 2022. The line serving EPCOT International Gateway, Disney's Riviera Resort and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is now available. The other two lines remain closed at this time.

Bus service is available at the resorts served by Disney Skyliner during the periods of closure.

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.

I feel like there's a "Gondola calls for aid" joke somewhere in here. 🤔

So cool! Do Spiderman next or some other character we will never see. :D

I'm waiting for the Dumbeldore one myself.

Great, because I tell you the internal bus drivers were a whole new level of crazy. We picked up the internal shuttle at Olde Port Royale, it made a few stops and another bus was leaving the stop near the Skyliner. Our bus stopped and the bus driver called out to the other bus driver asking if the passengers on her bus could get on that bus. When he drove away our bus driver told us she was ahead of schedule and she would need to stay at this stop for 10 to 15 minutes. We were staying in the Jamaica section. (the next stop) We got out and walked. We really were not happy about it though.

They’re doing finishing touches but it is open for use :)

Nice Job!!! Have they completed the work on the bridge between Aruba and Olde Port Royale? It was closed when I went in January from the 3rd through when we left on the 11th.

Last time I brought something up to managment, they told me I should have read the fine print... I was as nice as could be.... and I got the most snarky response ever. Excited you were taken seriously!

not related to the refurbishment, but I brought up with resort leadership last year that they really needed a map for the resort at the skyliner station. Today: voila!

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.
