Brightline direct train service from Miami to Disney will begin in 2022. The train station will be at Orlando Airport, but the next Orlando station is proposed to be Disney Springs. That means that travelers from southern Florida would be just a few short hours away from the ultimate Disney retail complex!
Approximately 1,000 workers are currently working on tracks from Miami to Orlando Airport. The work is on schedule to be completed by the projected date. Brightline has also been working on a design for a connecting train to Tampa. Upon completion of the Miami station, the train will also stop at stations in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. In the future, Aventura and Boca Raton stations will be stops as well.
According to Patrick Goddard, president of Brightline, “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 Resort 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.” (The Next Miami)
Walt Disney World Resort president, Jeff Vahleis quoted as saying “We’re excited to work with Brightline as they pursue the potential development of a train station at Walt Disney World Resort, a project that would support our local economy and offer a bold, forward-looking transportation solution for our community and guests.” (The Next Miami)
The trip will take around 3 hours. The price will be around $100 per ticket. With trips beginning in 2022, we’re sure the business at Disney Springs will be better than ever! Are you planning on using the Brightline train when it’s finished? Let us know in the comments!
