Disney officials have revealed new images and details about what you can expect when their new Skyliner transport system opens in Florida.

Unveiled earlier this year, the Skyliner, the transport of the visitors about Disney parks and resorts in the gondolas, decorated with popular characters from the classic Disney films, while the passengers enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista.

The system will connect Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts with Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot, giving visitors a great new way to travel between the properties.

According to Disney, the characters in the mix will be the likes of the “Top Five”, while a European-style train station, complete with glass roofs, wall and steel structures modeled in an Art Nouveau style comes to Epcot International Gateway.
