An Inside the Magic reader has reported to us that she spotted the Disney Skyliner running and reported that it is running on all routes this week. We had previously reported that the Skyliner was running earlier this month (you can read more here). And just a month ago, the Skyliner was being stored due to the temporary closure of Disney World. Now, an ITM reader has confirmed that testing for the Disney Skyliner gondola transportation system is underway so that it will be ready to transport Guests this summer.

Disney World Cast Members and Guest Services representatives have confirmed that even though the Disney Skyliner is nor currently transporting Disney Resort hotel Guests who are staying on property right now, it will be running after the Disney Parks reopen.
