Skyliner Construction Update - June 2018

The Skyliner station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is furthest along as work continues on this new transportation concept for Walt Disney World.

Skyliner Construction - June 2018

Disney’s Skyliner is the new transportation feature which will eventually link at least 4 resort hotels—-including the newest Disney Vacation Club property, Disney’s Riviera Resort—-to both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The route has an opening timeframe of fall 2019 to coincide with both Riviera and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Following is a look at the current state of the line including a number of its towers and most of the system’s stations.

Building 52 is probably a location to avoid as this tower is literally within 10’ of the guest room structure
