The Disney Skyliner station at Epcot’s International Gateway will match its nearby surroundings in the World Showcase with its European vibes and “metal and glass canopies, hand-painted murals and ornamental steel structures that harken back to the early 18th century Art Nouveau style.”

The Disney Skyliner station located at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort appears to be the main station on the route. This centralized location will allow riders to transfer to or from Hollywood Studios line or back to the resort/Epcot line if traveling from Hollywood Studios. This station sports a Caribbean theme, color scheme, and “is inspired by the open air village marketplaces of the Caribbean.”

Disney’s Hollywood Studios Skyliner station will definitely play the part. It’s art deco style will match the park’s main entrance and bus stations. According to the Disney Parks Blog, “Passengers traveling here from the Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station can expect a new aerial perspective of the park’s iconic attractions, like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.”

Additional info was also provided regarding the Pop Century & Art of Animation station describing an experience that “feels whimsical and contextual with both resorts. Upon departing the gondola station, Skyliner passengers will ascend over Hourglass Lake and enjoy a panoramic view of these two colorful resorts.”
