Today I checked out the Disney Skyliner (aka gondola) with a friend. There are actually two gondolas on the system; we started our trip at Hollywood Studios, transferred once, and ended it just behind the World Showcase, near the France pavilion.
The views from the gondola mostly consisted of roads, groves of trees, and parking lots, with the occasional lagoon, but it was actually really pleasant. And though there was no air conditioning in the gondola cars, the way the ventilation system works kept the cabin quite cool via airflow.
That said, the way the cabins and their sun-blocking windows were designed, it was hard to get a good picture from inside the gondolas. So here is one from the outside!
