Grand Floridian Walkway

Anyone who has been to the Magic Kingdom lately can attest to the fact that getting in and out of the park can take a long time. Whether you’re taking the monorail or the ferry boat, the crowds can be overwhelming at certain times of the day (especially when that monorail breaks down!). It’s had many guests over the years wondering why there isn’t an easier way. Well, guests of the Grand Floridian are about to get one!

For years, the perks of staying at the Contemporary Resort have included the fact that it is within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom. While the Grand Floridian Resort and the Polynesian Resort are also in close proximity, guests have been resigned to using the Resort Monorail to access the park. But recently it was discovered that the Walt Disney Company received a permit to begin construction on a walkway from the Grand Floridian directly to the Magic Kingdom!

Imagine how easily guests of the resorts will now be able to access their accommodations; no more waiting in long monorail lines! This will also help guests attempting to make it back to their cars after the fireworks, as many guests can opt to walk and shorten wait times for others.

It’s pretty clear that the walkway still has a long way to go before it’s completed, but it’s nice to see that construction is well underway! As a guest of the Grand Floridian, do you think this walkway would enhance your visit to Walt Disney World? Time will tell!
