Following Brightline’s announcement that the opening was significantly delayed to 2026, the Orlando Business Journal reported that the segment from the airport to Disney World is to begin construction in 2024!
At a recent presentation to Orange County, Brightline said construction on the train segment “could get started by first-quarter 2024.” The company still needs some approvals to officially begin construction, but this is their planned timeline.
Although this is much later than many people expected the line to be constructed and opened, it’s still good to know that progress has been made on the project! The line will make travel super convenient between Disney World and the airport, especially considering the end of Disney’s Magical Express service in 2022.
The construction is still expected to finish in time for the 2026 opening date, but this could change pending approvals. As this story develops, we’ll be on the lookout for the latest news! Stay tuned here for more!
