    To answer your question, no.

    Although a path between resorts isn't impossible. It's a straight line from the CBBR station to Pop! so if they really wanted to they could at a walkway. But we all know they won't as it likely wouldn't get enough usage to warrant the upkeep that the pavement would cause.

    I'm assuming Reedy Creek is handling evacuations. They do that for the Monorails.

    It was originally announced for Fall, but I assume they want it open by when SWGE opens. There seems to be no reason why they couldn’t make that from what I’m seeing.

    It’s a bit garish...

    I think the designs are fun. The HM one and the Donald family one especially.

    Individually, they're great but as a collection, it's....something.

    Should have made the fleet all red cabins with the character windows instead of this colorful mess lol. But give it a year it'll become the new normal I am sure.

    I'm looking forward to riding these often during my November vacation. Should be great sight lines....and way better than busing it. Generally I drive to the parks, except for MK. Hate the buses, and the slow accommodation for the fake electric scooter people. I probably will just drive to AK now, and use this for Epcot & DHS....unless the lines for this get too long.

    I love most of the designs... Not crazy about the Guardians one, but all the others look really good... I will probably never be able to ride in one, because the resorts attached will probably all start upping their price and be more in demand.

    It's not like you will have to pay to ride the gondolas though. To ride them will still be free, much like the monorail.

    As someone who sometimes rides the monorail just for fun, I’ll definitely do the same with these.

    I think a lot of people will do that. Disney Transportation is free to everyone and I'm sure there will be a big rush to ride the Skyliner when it opens.
