We made it out to Disney’s Hollywood Studios this morning and found that construction walls are in the process of being erected for the Disney Skyliner gondola system.
First, a look at the location of the site through a composite satellite photo, combined with the permit for the construction.
Let’s dive into a look at the work. Here’s a wide look at where the gondola station will eventually be. For a bit of reference, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is to the left and the walkway to Boardwalk is to the right.
Fencing is going up along the Boardwalk path now, with the Hollywood Studios side of the site prepared for fencing soon.
The path to Boardwalk remains open at this time.
To accommodate the construction, a section of the bus loop is closed off. Here’s a look at it from the air. We’ve highlighted the gondola construction site in green below.
We have a few photos of the half of the bus loop that is still in use.
The Disney Skyliner system is expected to be operational in time for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening in 2019.
