LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — An aerial cable car system that whisks visitors from theme parks to resorts at Walt Disney World is back operating more than a week after it unexpectedly stopped, stranding passengers for up to three hours in the air.

Disney officials said the resort's Disney Skyliner started operating again on Monday.

In a blog post, Disney officials said they have made training and operations adjustments following a review with the manufacturer.

Disney officials didn't respond to an email seeking further details.

The blog post also said improvements were being made in how Disney workers communicate with Skyliner visitors.

The Skyliner was closed for more than a week after the cable cars stalled on Oct. 5. No cause has been made public.

The Skyliner had been open for less than a week.
