    What is the new means of transportation being built that will go to the Art of Animation from Epcot and Animal Kingdom, i believe? It's some sort of lift. When will it open?

    Hi Miranda,

    Every time I visit the Walt Disney World Resort, I love getting to experience something new! This past year, it was Pandora - The World of Avatar. AMAZING! Have you been yet? I'd definitely encourage you to visit it both during the day and at night when the magic of bioluminescence brings everything to life. This summer, the much-anticipated Toy Story Land will be opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and I can't WAIT to see what it feels like to be a toy in Andy's backyard and experience this new land!

    And while no opening dates have been announced yet, work is already underway on the brand new Disney Skyliner. This project was announced last summer and will connect Disney's Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot with super fun gondolas, some of which will have Disney friends incorporated into the exterior, making it appear that they're joining you for a magical ride! There was a more recent update on the Disney Parks Blog that shared some of the incredible designs for the gondolas and the Disney Skyliner stations. The theming looks awesome! It will be so wonderful having an additional (and fun!) option for transportation, and it will be especially convenient for Guests staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, and Disney's Pop Century Resort as there will be stations serving each of those Resorts.

    Definitely keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for further Disney Skyliner updates, Miranda. I'll be excitedly watching along with you!
