Taking the short jog around Hourglass Lake that separates Pop Century and Art of Animation gives you a great look at the future of Walt Disney World Transportation in the gondola based ride the Disney Skyliner.

It feels like the resort is betting on something at Hollywood Studios being a huge draw and they are already looking at how to get guests there quickly or at least in a way that will make the journey as fun as the destination. Wonder if this has anything to do with Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge? This station sits on the Generation Gap bridge between the two resorts and appears to maybe have a next stop of the Caribbean Beach Resort and then maybe Hollywood Studios? It is hard to tell but since the line only leaves one side it is fair to guess it is the last stop on this line.

Two things are certain – the park is expanding and changing rapidly and a run around the lake in January has some amazing views with or without the Skyliner.

A brand new transportation system is coming to the Walt Disney World Resort to add even more magic to your future vacation experiences. Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts just announced that the Disney Skyliner will soon give guests a bird’s-eye view of Walt Disney World Resort.

The transportation system will connect Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts and other locations with Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot. And many of the gondolas with Disney Skyliner will feature favorite Disney characters.
