Disney knows how to handle a crowd. The world's most successful group of theme parks moves guests in a way that is not only efficient but enjoyable - a key to ensuring repeat visits.


This grand, state-of-the-art gondola system conveniently connects Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot to the following Disney Resort hotels:

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Disney’s Pop Century Resort

Disney’s Riviera Resort

Guests will enjoy never before seen views of the parks as they travel to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The Disney Skyliner station at International Gateway at Epcot is conveniently located just a short walk from Disney’s BoardWalk entertainment district, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. That connection allows guest another way to travel around Walt Disney World, in addition to the bus transport, making the resorts more attractive to guests.


Some of the gondolas are adorned with iconic Disney Characters, figures from Disney attractions and film favorites. You'll find the cast of Toy Story, Star Wars and of course the Mickey Mouse gang on these whimsically themed pods.
