After several months of construction, one of two new World Drive overpasses near the Magic Kingdom is now open. is reporting that the completion of the new northbound overpass means a different traffic pattern for guests visiting one of the Magic Kingdom Resort Area Hotels.

Guests visiting Disney’s Contemporary Resort and heading north on World Drive will now use the left lane to access the new northbound overpass. Guests heading to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort will keep still exit World Drive from the right lane to Vista Boulevard.

At this time there are no changes for guests who are planning to visit the Magic Kingdom. Guests can proceed on World Drive to the auto plaza like before.
