As the railway begins its construction, stops along the way have started to be confirmed since it will stretch from Orlando to Miami.

Brightline stated that “The design concept for the proposed station at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World includes a lobby on the ground level, passenger facilities and an upper level train platform. The proposed location would be in close proximity to Walt Disney World Resort’s four theme parks, two water parks and more than 25 hotels.”

Since so many visitors visit Florida specifically for the theme parks, Brightline found it necessary to include Disney World as one of its stops. Brightline CEO Patrick Goddard noted, “Brightline will offer a car-free connection to the millions of visitors from around the state and the world who plan to make Walt Disney World a part of their vacation plans. Our mission has always been to connect our guests to the people and places that matter, and Walt Disney World Resort is a tremendous example of this.”

As construction for the railway leading from South Florida to Central Florida continues, crews are looking to have it completed by 2022. While there will be stations at the new Terminal C at the Orlando International Airport and Disney Springs, the Brightline track will also stop at West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and other cities along the way.
