It’s been rumored for a couple months and after much speculation, we can finally confirm Disney will be building a gondola system which will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the resorts between.  Thanks to documents and permits publicly released by Reedy Creek Improvement District today, we can clearly see there will be six stations and three routes.  They will connect Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and the lake located between Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.

Each cab, or “gondola,” will hold ten riders and most likely be fully enclosed.  Now this may not sound very efficient, but no need to worry.  With today’s modern aerial transportation systems, they are able to be continuously circulating with each gondola possibly arriving at each station anywhere between every 10-60 seconds.  With that type of system, guests would be able to walk up and grab the next available gondola!

The new system will not only help alleviate crowds for Disney bus transportation, but is a no brainer for the soon to be opened Star Wars land and Toy Story land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Epcot is also expected to go under a major overhaul in the next few years.  Plus, Disney’s Caribbean Beach is getting a refurbishment and DVC expansion, so it makes sense to add on an easier way for the guests to get to two of the Disney theme parks.
