Looks very minor if they even collided at all. Bumpers are there for a reason :)
Interesting. Good to know. Thanks again for sharing your expertise in this thread over the past couple of years.

Saw on Twitter that there may have been another incident of Skyliner cars banging together.
Meh. Call me when they're

The cast members (what’s left of them) are out of practice because of COVID. They need to get their skills back before the mobs are back at WDW..

You wanna see mobs at the skyliner? Try getting from Pop Century to Hollywood Studios in the AM. A line all the way down along hourglass lake, and then another long line when you get to Caribbean Bch.

Or try leaving Epcot on the Skyliner on those nights when it closes at 7pm?! Oh lawdy! I had to walk over to Abracada-Bar to calm my nerves for an hour.

We went last July the week all the parks reopened. Even though the parks and resorts were DEAD, there was a line at Pop every morning that went back to the laundromat beside the pool behind Classic Hall. It moved super fast and was no big deal. Still quicker, easier, and more relaxing than a bus. Just my personal experience and not meant to disparage yours.

That line from personal experience was about 10 minutes... Still way faster than waiting for a bus.

Care to elaborate?
"Confirmed today by transportation cast members, beginning January 24th, routine maintenance will begin occurring on the separate Skyliner lines, causing the line to be unavailable for the entire day.

The maintenance schedule will be as follows:

Sunday, January 24th: the Skyliner line leading to and from Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort will be unavailable.

Tuesday, January 26th: the Skyliner line leading to and from Disney's Hollywood Studios will be unavailable.

Thursday, January 28th: the Skyliner line leading to and from EPCOT's International Gateway will be unavailable."

Seems logical that just like everything mechanical it needs regular maintenance.

Lines are only down for one day reach. I would think a re-splice would take longer then that. Probably just maintenance on the towers.

Are people under the impression that magic elves and fairies lube the motors when the children sleep?

This can’t be a serious question, can it?

Honestly after using it I wasn't a huge fan
Felt like a very inconsistent form of transportation. Sometimes it was super fast but other times it would stop 5 times in a row. I also don't like how basically you use it and then have to go to a hub
