    Each cabin will showcase Disney characters and stations will be spread out throughout the park to give visitors a scenic view of the resort. 


    One station will be at the International Gateway at Epcot. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort will be the station that serves as the system's hub where guests can transfer.


    The blog did not say when the gondolas will open.


    The gondola construction project comes as Disney is expanding by building new lands in Hollywood Studios and adding more rides in Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
