Visitors to Walt Disney World® Resort have spotted something new this week! Testing has begun for the Disney Skyway gondolas. The new state-of-the-art gondola system, scheduled to open this fall, will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios® and Epcot® with four resort hotels – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and the proposed Disney’s Riviera Resort.

Check out the video below to hear more about the Disney Skyway project from Jordan Matthews at Walt Disney Imagineering:

Several of the gondolas will feature graphics based on Disney films, attractions, and characters. From the ground, it may look like Mickey, Minnie, and friends are riding in the gondola along with the guests. Artwork on the gondolas will showcase films such as “Beauty & the Beast,” “Frozen,” “Lilo & Stitch,” “Moana,” “Peter Pan,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Zootopia.”

Other themed gondolas include:
