We shared in November 2018 that Brightline, a high-speed train service based in Florida, may possibly have a stop located at Walt Disney World. We now have some news regarding this West Palm Beach to Orlando rail service that may be in the works!
An update was provided by Brightline President Patrick Goddard during a December 13 update with the Central Florida Expressway Authority. It was stated during this meeting that a 30-day notice is planned to be given to its contractor. This notice is expected on February 1 and it will allow the still unknown contractor to proceed on the new route. The contractor will be able to work on this new line once the 30-day waiting period passes. The new rail line is estimated to cost $2.1 billion. According to Brightline, the new route is expected to be completed by late 2020 or early 2021.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is slated to open fall 2019. While this method of transportation will not be of any help for the eagerly anticipated land, if projections hold true, it will be ready for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. The 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World will take place during 2021. Walt Disney World Resort has been going through some major renovations in anticipation for this milestone celebration.
In related news, Brightline also plans to extend service from Orlando International Airport to Tampa. The location of the potential station has yet to be disclosed. This potential line will give those from the Tampa Bay area another transportation option to visit the “Most Magical Place on Earth”. It could also serve as transportation to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
