Some of you may know that Disney Skyliner, which opened to resort guests at the tail end of September, has been closed due to operational difficulties and an incident which occurred on October 5, 2019.
Today, Disney Skyliner reopens to guests at Walt Disney World Resort!
The entire system has been reviewed with the manufacturer, and in true Disney fashion, many of the training, communication and processes have been adjusted. If there is a silver lining to the malfunction that took place earlier this month, it is the fact that Disney has learned from it, and continues to improve the system for guest safety and enjoyment.
Disney Skyliner is open today from 8 am until 10:30 pm.
Later this week, there will be modified hours of operation to accommodate additional system updates:
It's important for guests to understand that, from time to time, the Disney Skyliner system may slow down or come to a stop, especially while cast members are assisting guests who need some extra time and help to board the gondolas.
Disney Skyliner can help you get from Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios to four different resorts:
I'm really looking forward to taking Disney Skyliner for a spin this coming weekend!
When I opened up my Disney travel agents portal this morning, I was delighted to find all kinds of new information about special events, treats, celebrity appearances and nighttime spectacular shows coming to Walt Disney World Resort for the holiday season later on this year. I know, it's only the beginning of the summer season, and already we're talking about Christmas! But that's the way it is in the travel industry, and the Disney Destinations are no exception.
Here's a brief list of what's new for the holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort in 2019!
Dates for this year's Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are: November 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 22 and 24 as well as December 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20 and 22.
I woke up this morning to find all of my favourite Facebook feeds filled with exciting new details for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Fans of the Star Wars film series will be blown away by all of the attention to detail that's going into the development of this new, immersive playground, and food is, of course, no exception.
But first, you need to understand the overall theming of Galaxy's Edge, and if you've read the headline of this post, you're probably wondering what the heck "Batuu" means.
Batuu is the home of Black Spire Outpost, the location where guests will visit when they first arrive at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Batuu has become a haven for the galaxy's most colourful and notorious characters. More details will be shared about this entirely new land over the next few months, and with the opening of Galaxy's Edge slated for summer this year, there's sure to be a lot of excitement!
There is a lot of information out there now about everything coming to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Let's look at the four dining experiences hat are coming to Batuu first, along with the accompanying themes and menu teasers.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo--"Tuggs' Grub"
Chef Strong "Cookie" Tuggs has travelled throughout the galaxy, following his longtime gig as the chef at Maz Kanata's castle on Takodana and brings exotic flavours and unusual dishes to his traveling diner.
A recycled podracing engine fires up a spot of exotic meats, meticulously turned by a former smelter droid, 8D-J8. You can even sample some of the tasty dishes here.
This is the place to go for farm-fresh blue milk or green milk, from Bubo Wamba Family Farms.
Kat Saka's Kettle
This is one of the many street market stalls, where you'll be able to pick up a blend of sweet, savoury and spicy popcorn called Outpost Mix.
Knowing Disney, the food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is sure to be amazing! They did such an awesome job developing the dining experiences available in Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom, I can definitely see the potential for many of the menu items in Batuu to become guest favourites, as well.
