The Disney Skyliner gondola transportation system did not open this morning at Walt Disney World after guests were trapped for a significant amount of hours last night, according to Mike at Blog Mickey.
The Blog Mickey writer/owner visited the Disney Skyliner (gondola) stations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Riviera Resort to find that the entire system is down today as Disney investigates what it is referring to as “unexpected downtime”.
At this time, there is no estimated reopening time or date, according to Cast Members. A Disney spokesperson re-released a statement from saying that there was “no accident”, to one that acknowledge the accident late last night.
After a short amount of time, the official statement became that an “empty car was delayed, a second empty car bumped it. No guests where involved”. Another statement released addressed the ongoing downtime as a result of the investigation.
Disney said that “one of the three Disney Skyliner routes experienced unexpected downtime Saturday evening. As a result, the Skyliner will be closed while we look into the details surrounding this downtime. We apologise for this situation, and we are working with each guest individually regarding impacts to their visit with us”.
At this present time, the Disney Skyliner is not operation and safety measures have been put in place to make sure nobody enters the gondola cabins during the investigation period.
