The route to Disney from Orlando International Airport would cost $1.03 billion-$2.1 billion, depending on which alignment is selected, and the company hopes to start service on the segment as early as third-quarter 2026. The full Tampa extension could start service by 2028 or 2029, according to Michael Cegelis, executive vice president of rail infrastructure for Brightline.

Brightline’s Orlando extension project will cover 170-miles from West Palm Beach to Orlando International Airport. It will connect Miami to Orlando via high-speed rail by late 2022.

This should be interesting with Disney’s Magical Express no longer offering free service from the Orlando Airport to the Disney World Resorts starting in 2022 that leaves a 4-year window of guests using private service shuttles to get from MCO to WDW.
