The Skyliner station at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is furthest along as work continues on this new transportation concept for Walt Disney World.
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.
Starting our tour with the Hollywood Studios station, the outer shell is currently being installed
Towers leading away from Hollywood Studios, toward the station at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Towers looming large above Caribbean Beach buildings
Building 52 is probably a location to avoid as this tower is literally within 10’ of the guest room structure
Looking toward Riviera Resort (right)
One of the lower towers which will eventually head into the Riviera Station, on which construction has barely begun
Headed over to Disney’s BoardWalk, to the right is a structure where the line will change directions by 90 degrees or more. Two towers on left lead toward Epcot.
