Thanks for the post. It seems like fall is still a long-time away and maybe they would open early?

Agreed, it doesn't make sense given how far along with testing they are, unless they want to do a lot of temperature monitoring throughout the summer. At least I'm guessing they'll have a soft opening of them running for a few weeks before they cut back on bus service.

Ditto.

I think the gondolas will be a great addition to help with transportation situation...but.
I just wish it didnít end at IG entrance, but rather it had been inside the park.

We just will have to wait and see. I just keep hoping my fears are wrong.

THAT would have been such a cool idea!

I actually think they're doing a decent job of getting the structure to blend in architecturally with France, with the Art Nouveau stylings an all. But yes, would much prefer not to have IG entrance get bottlenecked. *sobs* at what will become of my beloved IG entrance and that quiet GS area.

On my recent trip I took a look at the new security setup at DHS in relation to the skyliner there. I'd heard that the DHS station was in a spot that couldn't work and that's why the gondolas will ultimately stay outside security.

Now while it seems like they will be outside the security bubble right now, they could easily change this at DHS with some fencing to make it so to allow the skyliner guests to bypass the security gates. Same for the IG, they could move the security checkpoint out further if they chose to.

Whether they do this or not moving forward who knows, but it's definitely an option.

Not to be a downer but we just returned from the IG and the walls are not down, everything is still totally covered. Well some actual wall is down but is screened by movable shrubbery. Looking through the cracks it looks complete except for a large amount of muddy dirt that needs landscaping/finishing work.
