According to WDW Magic today, Disney has filed paperwork with the South Florida Water Management district for proposed changes/improvements to World Drive. World Drive is the main route into Magic Kingdom (and also the Ticket and Transportation Center), as well as the Contemporary Resort, and is one of the busiest roads on the resort property.

According to the recently filed plans, Disney is looking to add a flyover ramp taking traffic directly from World Drive and bypassing the Magic Kingdom parking plaza for drivers heading towards the Contemporary and other resort area hotels.

In the opposite direction, a flyover ramp will allow traffic heading from the Contemporary Resort side of World Drive to continue on World Drive beyond the Magic Kingdom parking plaza.

We think this new addition of flyover ramps should alleviate some congestion and frustration for guests at The Contemporary who try to get in and out of the parking lot during busy park hours. What are your thoughts? Do you think it will help with the large amounts of traffic in that area?
