According to a post on the Orlando Sentinel Virgin Trains (Formerly Brightline) will be building a new station near Walt Disney World as well as a station at the Orlando Airport.
Here is a quote from the President of Virgin Trains Patrick Goddard, “It’s our expectation to get it done and to build out to Disney.” “It is entirely conceivable that that can happen with the delivery of the Orlando Airport station.”
Construction is expected to take between 30 to 36 months.
Virgin Trains signed a letter of intent with Disney last year.
“We’ve had an excellent relationship with Walt Disney World,” Goddard said. “They are big supporters of our project.”

Are you excited to see a new train station at Walt Disney World? Does this mean guests could also ride the rails from MCO to Disney World? I am sure we will have more details in the coming months.
