Disney Rolls the Dice on Rumored Gondola Transportation System

The internet is abuzz with a rumored gondola system coming to Walt Disney World. According to this article, the Gondolas would link the Caribbean Beach Resort, Pop Century, and Art of Animation with Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

While we think the gondolas have some curb appeal, we’re just a tiny bit cynical about how it will work in practice…

The Walt Disney World Gondola System Imagined as Monopoly Game

Shane was raised on a steady diet of EPCOT Center and Kenner action figures. Parkeology is the happy result. He is the creator along with his friend Ted of the WDW47 Challenge and the WDW49 Challenge — featured by such media giants as CNN, ABC, FoxNews, and the in-flight magazine for Norwegian Air. With his brother Tristan, Shane is the author of the adventure fantasy novels Arabian Heist and Johnny Shipwreck. He currently resides in the Swiss Family Treehouse.

  1. I call BS on the “Pay $20 for every child owned” card. Everybody knows that the board game where you collect children is the Game of Life, not Monopoly.

  2. I thought this was a Parkeology idea at first… How can this be taken seriously? Unless it’s a clever* idea to get people to embark/disembark through a gift shop?! Now, where did we put those M.O.P.S plushes…


    • Are you implying that Parkeology ideas cannot be taken seriously?! We are mortified. And I suppose it’s back to the drawing board with our ultra-cool stork delivery system for park merchandise…

      • Well, since you apparently didn’t like my idea of a recurring “People of WDW” series along the lines of those “People of Walmart” posts, may I suggest a post on old Disney movies that would’ve been good to make into rides. For example, “The Apple Dumpling Gang” would’ve fit nicely in Frontier Land. People would’ve waited in line for hours to see a Don Knotts AA figure. “George of the Jungle” was made for Adventure Land. And, of course, a perfect ride for Tomorrow Land would’ve been… yep, you guessed it… “The Black Hole.” Can you imagine what a mint condition Ernest Borgnine action figure would sell for these days?
