Brightline shooting for 2023 Disney World Debut

Last month we learned that a Brightline railway station is coming to Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort. We now know when the station might be complete.

According to the Orlando Business Journal, “the Miami-based intercity rail provider in its November monthly ridership report said it wants to start revenue service on the connection during the second half of 2023.” The timeline is also contingent on “right of way acquisition, permitting, final design and engineering.”

The general area of Disney Springs is the chosen location for the Brightline station, but there’s no word yet on the exact location. Once complete, it’ll allow Walt Disney World guests to connect with other popular areas of South Florida like Miami Beach and cruise terminals.

“The station at Disney Springs will provide a fast, convenient and enjoyable alternative to driving or flying for the millions of trips made by guests traveling between South Florida and Orlando to visit the Walt Disney World Resort each year,” Brightline wrote. “As part of a future planned extension to Tampa, the station at Disney Springs could also serve the millions of annual visitors to Disney and Orlando originating from the Tampa area.”

We will continue to update as more information is released!
