Land Preparations Underway for Disney Skyliner Evacuation Points at Caribbean Beach Resort

We made it out to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort today to find a very busy construction site. Crews are scattered throughout the Aruba section of the resort tearing up the ground to access what appear to be irrigation lines.

After spending some time walking through the resort, it appears that crews are either rerouting or reinforcing irrigation lines under the Disney Skyliner cables to prepare the land for the potentially heavy equipment needed in the event of an evacuation.

The work taking place is limited to the stretch of green spaces that run beneath and near the Disney Skyliner route. An evacuation at Caribbean Beach Resort could be particularly difficult given the close proximity of the Disney Skyliner towers to the many hotel buildings.

Signs throughout the construction sites point to the Disney Skyliner gondola system as the reason for the work.

While work on the Disney Skyliner gondola system has progressed greatly in the past few weeks, it’s likely that even more prep work will be needed along the entire route to prepare for evacuation purposes.

Disney has stated that the Disney Skyliner gondola system will be functional this fall.

As always, stick with for the latest news and photos of the Disney Skyliner gondola system and many more projects from around Walt Disney World Resort.

  1. My understanding of the work getting done at this location is for new landscaping that will keep people away from the towers and help hide them. Irrigation lines need to be moved and added for the new bushes and trees.

    This is how a gondola is evacuated should the system become completely inoperable:

    Yes, there are some sections where platform lift trucks and bucket trucks can be used, but this is an example of what would be used to get people off the Skyliner.
