    Will the Skyliner be up and running by Thanksgiving?

    Hey howdy hey, Michele and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have the exact same question as you and so many other Guests, "when is the Disney Skyliner going to be up and running?" It seems to be the second most popular question right behind "When is Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening?" As of now, we are still waiting for Mickey to put the final touches on this enchanted lift across Walt Disney World Resort and is anticipated to be transporting Mouseketeers sometime fall of 2019. I know they were testing the gondolas as recently as last week so stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for updates.

    I am excited to be able to easily travel between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot but more importantly, is the Epcot gondola station at the Epcot International Gateway. Why? Because this area also serves as access to Disney's BoardWalk which is the best not-so-hidden secret for nighttime fun.

    Disney Dad Tip: It is worth a Disney Skyliner gondola ride just to see the antics of the BoardWalk buskers who perform nightly in front of Disney's BoardWalk Inn. Whether juggling or performing magic or demonstrating amazing feats of balance, these entertainers are phenomenal.

    Michele, hopefully, we will hear soon about the official Disney Skyliner opening date.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
