Contractors are in place and working on Disney World's new gondola system

 

It looks like Walt Disney World is planning on building an aerial gondola system (Skyway style ride) to transport guests between the Hollywood Studios and Epcot parks to select hotels. This one will have enclosed cabs to protect riders from bad weather unlike older ones built by Von Roll (such as the one found at Great Adventure).


Coaster count - 61

El Toro ride count - 87

Nitro ride count - 105

Fantastic idea. The new changes to both Hollywood Studios and Epcot will be bringing in much more traffic. I love the bus system but I think that it's starting to show its limits. Hopefully this will also make Art of Animation and Pop Century a bit less isolated.

I would like to see a map of the exact layout of the gondola.

They still haven't confirmed it publicly, but they have commented saying that they have "exciting announcements" in store regarding future transportation. There's a few different sites with various self-made diagrams on where people theorize the stations will be exactly. We know that there will likely be 3 separate lines with 6 stations.

Disney has confirmed they will put in a Club 33 in each dry park.

Safest bet in the world: that a geek snob will find something wrong with something big in the subject of his/her (mostly his) fixation and grouse about it for the rest of his/her life.
