The only Skyliner Resort I would consider staying at would be Riviera as it’s the only Deluxe. However we never use Disney transport while we are there and have no desire to use the Skyliner.

How does the line move in relation to a similar line at a bus stop ?
sorry... do not know. I did not stick around to watch. Just noticed the very long line (stretched almost to the bus area) on our way to the bus to POFQ.

Not the incident itself but the price increase has me questioning whether a Skyliner resort is worth more "risk" until it's been running for a longer period. Sure could book at an increased $50/night at CBR, but until reliability is improved there's a larger risk of paying more and not being able to use at all.

I would be hesitant to ride in the first few days it's open, but look forward to riding in January.

I do feel for the first few days of riders though. Every time it stops, they'll be wondering just how long it will be. And it sure was stopping a lot, even before Saturday night's "incident".

We're interested in BW and CBR for our next trip. No doubt the big rate increases at Skyliner resorts reflect anticipated demand of better transport access. We'd love to use it but if long lines or whatever issue made us decide against using the Skyliner, I wouldn't want to pay the increased rates to stay there. We'd choose somewhere else.

Im starting to wonder if it is even going to be an issue because it does not look like it is ever going to re-open.
How do you know? I'm sure once Doppellmayer have done their investigation, found the issue, tested it and Disney have informed/trained CMs it will be re-opened.
The monorail crashed and killed the driver and they worked out the faults that caused the accident and put in systems and procedures to prevent it happening again and re-opened.

But the monorails are awesome and are not flaming sky ovens ;)

They'll figure it out. My next trip I don't plan to stay on the skyliner but the one after that one I think there is a good chance that I will. We like to keep a rental car when we travel including at Disney so I am not overly worried about any transportation issue. We stayed on the monorail last time and used the monorail when traveling to MK and Epcot but the rest of the time we used our car. It worked out so nicely. I would love to use the skyliner for HS and Epcot and the rest of the time use our car. Hopefully they can get this working properly.

It just seems like it was a little nothing accident it should have been reopened already. People are making such a big thing out of it.

Well, it would be nice if they figured out what caused it to happen so it doesn't happen again. They've had their "oops". They really need to make sure they don't have a repeat.

People are making a big thing out of it, but it has also not even been closed a week, a proper investigation will take a few weeks. I would expect it will re-open in a month or three.

It sucks for people like me who booked a resort because I hate buses and booked specifically because of the skyliner, now it probably will not be open, I think a month or more is a bit insane, it was not that bad , it should not take that long a proper investigation should not take more than a week.

Not worried at all. This was a minor glitch. They will learn from it and we will all be better off.

We rode the skyliner Monday and yesterday....they kept it running after the Epcot EME so we rode it back to AoA.

Lines moved quickly and they were not that long last night leaving Epcot. The last Epcot EME we attended the skyliner line was sooooo long....much better now!
