Cast Member Previews Announced for Disney Skyliner Gondola System

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

Disney Cast Members will be amongst the first to ride the Disney Skyliner gondola system next week. There will be two rounds of previews, one will be a preview for just Cast Members who work at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and a second will be for all Walt Disney World Cast Members.
