Walt Disney World park-goers were stuck for hours aboard the Florida resort’s newly launched aerial cable car system Saturday night. Firefighters were needed to get people from gondolas to the ground. Disney says the Skyliner “will be closed while we look into the details” surrounding the incident.
… The Skyliner air gondolas whisk visitors from hotels to theme parks three stories above the ground while going 11 mph. No more than 10 people are allowed in each cable car. There are almost 300 air gondolas, allowing the cabins to handle about 3,000 people an hour.
