Walt Disney World Resort has been warning Guests to prepare for upcoming work on the Disney Skyliner transportation system, scheduled for January 22-29, 2023.

Now, however, all mention of the closure has been suddenly removed from the official Skyliner webpage. It is worth noting that closure details remain on individual resort hotel and theme park pages.

The Disney Skyliner serves EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's POP Century Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and Disney's Riviera Resort.

The theme park's newest transportation option opened in 2019.

At this time, Disney hasn't announced any updates to the Skyliner closure, so Guests who planned to use the gondolas during stays from January 22-29 should prepare to use other onsite transportation options.

Disney World previously stated that additional buses would be available during that week.

If Disney officials have decided to postpone the Skyliner closure, they will likely update the website with the new closure dates in the near future.
