ORLANDO, Fla. — Disney visitors will get to try out the theme park's new air gondolas in September.

Walt Disney World announced Monday that the Disney Skyliner, which is like mini-cabins in the sky, will begin operating on Sept. 29 and will give guests "a never-before-seen birds-eye view. " It will transport visitors between Epcot, Hollywood Studios and several resorts.

The mini cabins will go about 11 mph (18 kph) and hang as high as 60 feet (18 meters) in the air at some points.

The rides will last between five and 15 minutes.
