Transportation and ease of access to the parks is a big focus at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Some guests prefer to take a bus, while others hop on the monorail, and still others like the Disney Skyliner or boat access to the parks and resorts. Soon, guests of one deluxe resort at Walt Disney World will likely have a whole new and easy way to make their way over to Magic Kingdom!
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is one of the few Disney resorts currently connected to the Disney Resort Monorail system.
We’ve seen quite a bit of this resort in the news lately since some of our favorite basketball players are staying there as the NBA season returns in Walt Disney World. A pop-up NBA barbershop has even appeared in the NBA Disney bubble!
While we’re in and around the parks and resorts, we’ve also been watching construction that has been ongoing on the far side of the resort, for what we’ve presumed to be a bridge connecting the Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom! While Disney has not yet officially confirmed the project, it’s pretty hard to disguise it now, considering it appears to be nearing completion!
Just take a look at that bridge!! With the addition of this walkway, guests of the Grand Floridian will have another way to get to the Magic Kingdom aside fro the monorail. Once the bridge is fully complete and open, guests who want to stretch their legs will be actually able to stroll to and from the Magic Kingdom and the Grand Floridian by foot!
Considering that Disney’s Contemporary Resort already has easy walking access to Magic Kingdom, this will be a really great benefit for the guests staying at the Grand Floridian. Plus, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is already accessible to the Grand Floridian by a walkway, so this would allow guests of the Polynesian to walk all the way through to Magic Kingdom if they want to as well!
We’ll definitely keep checking up on the progress of this walkway as it nears completion and give you updates along the way!
