ORLANDO, Fla. – Disney World’s new Skyliner gondolas are back open to park guests after being closed for more than a week when guests were left stranded for hours late into the night on Oct. 5. 

The gondola transportation system reopened at 8 a.m. Monday and will stay open until 10:30 p.m. 

Disney officials said on its blog the Skyliner system would undergo further updates later this week, forcing the system to operate under a modified scheduled from Oct. 16-18. 

On Oct. 16, the Hollywood Studios line will be closed but the other lines will run from 1 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. On Oct. 17-18, all Skyliner systems will run from 1 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. 

A Disney official said, “Following a complete review with the manufacturer, we’ve made adjustments to our processes and training, and we are improving how we communicate with guests during their flight with Disney Skyliner.  We again offer our deepest apologies to the guests impacted by the malfunction that resulted in extended operating delays on Oct. 5.”
