We went on similar in Madeira in November, they were high but I don't think they were 12,000 feet high ...I hated it but at least I can say I did it ... my little girl loved it , she's not got a fear of heights like me.
Those are continuous moving pods too and the queues move very quickly

Also, for those worried about Florida's weather affecting this mode of transport...

Doppelmayr, the company building the gondola system, has also built a similar system at Universal Studios Singapore. Singapore's tropical climate makes Orlando's look mild in comparison.

I imagine it will be similar to the ones at Alton Towers. More than enough room for pushchairs etc.

They've been using these in Scotland for years. Aviemore and Fort William springs to mind. Never thought I'd see them in Disney.
A good idea.

I hope it's not too high and it works without too much inconvenience to everyone!

Been years since I was on one. Will I take the bait? Don't know depends how high and how secure it looks and the length of the journey!

Yes, the Alton Towers cable cars are also 10-person vehicles.

AT's Skyride apparently has a maximum throughput of 2880 people per hour (although I suspect its normally about half this). As a comparison, between CBR and HS there are roughly 5 buses an hour and each bus can probably carry around 60 people. So that's around a maximum of 300 people per hour - twice that for there and back.
