Getting around the Walt Disney World Resort is about to get a lot... higher.

A new gondola system is set to open September 29th at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The system connects Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios as well as resort hotels in the area like Disney's newest resort, Disney's Riviera Resort as well as Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort.

The system will ease some of the demand on Disney's bus fleet, which is one of the largest bus fleets in the country. 

Each gondola sports a vibrant color as well as Disney characters. 

The characters include: 

“Coco”

Goofy, Pete, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow

“Finding Dory”

Haunted Mansion

“Monsters, Inc.”

Pirates of the Caribbean

“Ratatouille”
