Today Disney announced that the Skyliner at the Walt Disney World Resort will closed for refurbishment in early 2022. The Skyliner, which has been open for several years now, serves as a transportation system between Hollywood Studios theme park, EPCOT theme park and several resort hotels including Caribbean Beach Resort, Art of Animation, Riviera Resort and Pop Century.
The Skyliner will close from Sunday, Jan. 23rd, 2022 to Thursday, Jan. 28th, 2022 for refurbishment. Only the line between EPCOT’s International Gateway and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will be closed. That line also includes a stop at Disney’s Riviera Resort.
Guests who are staying on property at Riviera and Caribbean Beach Club will have bus transportation service provided to EPCOT. The FriendShip Boat service will also be available to guests from Hollywood Studios, EPCOT and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.
