The new transportation system will be connecting Disney’s Art of Animation, Disney’s Pop Century, Disney’s Caribbean Beach , and the newly announced 15th DVC resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort.  The Epcot resorts will have their station at the International Gateway entrance to the park.

As for the design of the gondolas?  They will feature many of our favorite Disney characters! No opening time frame has been announced.

The second form of transportation will be featuring vehicles themed after Minnie Mouse!

This new uber-style transportation is called Minnie Vans and will be able to takes guests anywhere they want on property, for a small fee of course.

“Since we’re all about exceeding guest expectations and making every aspect of your vacation uniquely Disney, we’re creating a new point-to-point transportation service in a way that only Disney can do,” Bob Chapek said.

The new service currently costs $20 to go anywhere on property.  It’s possible with time, prices could develop a range. Minnie Vans have already been spotted in use, but as to whether or not it’s only for testing hasn’t been confirmed. They should be in full swing in the next couple weeks!
