Last September, Walt Disney World Resort debuted a new mode of transportation — The Disney Skyliner. While aboard a Disney Skyliner gondola, Guests have the opportunity of traveling from their Resort hotel to one of the Disney theme parks, all while taking in beautiful views of Walt Disney World landscape.

Ever since July 2020 when Walt Disney World reopened, due to the ongoing pandemic, Disney was only seating one party per Skyliner gondola. This was enforced in order to keep Guests safe while traveling throughout Disney property.

Now, as Disney World continues its phased approach, effective today, the Disney Skyliner is reportedly loading multiple parties into the gondolas.

Disney Guest Scott Mateosky took to Instagram to share a video aboard the Disney Skyliner this morning. Within the video, he states “So just instituted now they are now boarding multiple people on the Skyliners”.

Scott also shared the following as his caption to the video on Instagram:

#wdw now seats multiple parties in the #Skyliner and the ride was fun! It’s great to connect with people again!

Disney fan, Maxwell Glick, also took to social media to share the news. In a recent Tweet, he shared:

This seems to be part of Disney World’s phased reopening approach. Not long ago, Walt Disney World did state that they will begin reducing social distancing in a phased approach at the theme parks. We have already seen Cast Members begin to remove social distancing markers from Disney Springs as well as taking down the plexiglass in the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance queue line at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

We’ve also seen certain attractions begin loading all rows, including on Tower of Terror, as well as shows fill in all rows including For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

So it seems as though loading multiple parties into a Skyliner gondola is part of this phased approach. However, we do want to note that even though Scott shared this video to Instagram, the Walt Disney World website still states “The Disney Skyliner will load one party per gondola.”

It is also important to keep in mind that the Skyliner gondolas can fit up to 10 Guests and do have openings so fresh air circulates. Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information regarding the Disney Skyliner.

More on the Disney Skyliner

Guests can board Disney’s Skyliner — a complementary mode of transportation — and glide past one-of-a-kind views of waterways, woodlands, and two Walt Disney World theme parks — Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. The new Skyliner transposition is in constant motion, which means Guests arrive at their destination within minutes! Relax along the way, take in the views, and you will be there before you know it.

The Disney Skyliner allows Guests staying at Disney’s Art of Animation, Disney’s Pop Century, Disney’s Caribbean Beach, or Disney’s Riviera Resort to travel from their resort to two Disney theme parks — EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios — all while taking in beautiful views of Disney landscape.
