Disney has released new images and information about its upcoming transportation system addition that will connect its Lake Buena Vista, Florida parks and resorts.

Called the Disney Skyliner, the project will feature a series of gondolas and stations.

It’s scheduled to connect Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century and Caribbean Beach resorts and other locations with Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot.

Each of the stations will have a look specific to the park it is located in.

The design of the Disney Skyliner station at International Gateway at Epcot will be influenced by the park’s nearby European Pavilions, and will be covered with metal and glass canopies, hand-painted murals and ornamental steel structures that harken back to the early 18th century Art Nouveau style, according to Disney's blog.

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort station will be inspired by the open air village marketplaces of the Caribbean and will showcase the nearby resort’s architectural detailing and color schemes. At this station, passengers will be able to transfer gondola routes to reach their destination.
