The Disney Parks web site additionally notes some modified Skyliner hours this week resulting from system updates:

Oct. 17–18: All strains will likely be open from 1 to 10:30 p.m.

Hopefully the Oct. 5 incident gained’t repeat, however I extremely advocate having everybody use the restroom earlier than boarding the Skyliner, simply in case of a delay. Its reopening is nice information for these staying at one of many resorts on the road as flying to a resort seems like much more enjoyable than boarding a bus — assuming you aren’t dangling within the air for a couple of further hours.
