PHOTOS and VIDEOS: There’s a NEW Way to Get to Magic Kingdom! Disney World’s Grand Floridian Walkway is OPEN

Construction has continued to take place all around Disney World, making us even more excited for the projects that are on the way soon!

Entrance to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Although we can’t wait to ride some of the latest attractions or dine at a new restaurant, one of Disney’s big projects has officially been completed today! And, we’re taking you with us on our walk around the finished Disney’s Grand Floridian Walkway, leading all the way to the Magic Kingdom!

Guests staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort know that a huge perk to visiting the hotel is the easy accessibility to the Magic Kingdom. Although the Monorail directly connects from the Grand Floridian to other resorts and the Magic Kingdom, guests have also been able to take a few walking paths straight to the gates as well.

However, Disney has been working on the new Grand Floridian Walkway, which can be used by guests staying at both Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. While we’ve watched signs and sidewalk installed around the resort areas, today the walkway has opened for guests to officially use as they head to the Magic Kingdom!

Guests can find signs at Magic Kingdom pointing to where guests can enter the walkway area leading directly to the resorts.

Walkway signs are placed around the resort, so guests are able to find their way from their rooms directly over to the Magic Kingdom.

We are so excited to finally see Disney’s Grand Floridian Walkway open! While it definitely is a way to get your steps in for the day, the Walkway is another way to get to the parks early in the morning without relying on transportation. Although it does take a bit of time, the convenience of being able to walk straight from your room over to Magic Kingdom is worth it.
