It may take people to make the dream of Walt Disney World a reality, but it takes busses, monorails, and boats to get the dream moving. It may sound hyperbolic, but Walt Disney World really is its own city, and as such it is constantly making changes to the various transportation options around the resort in order to better serve the guests and Cast Members who rely on Disney's complex transportation system every day. If you are going to be riding a bus, parking tram, or even your own car, here are a few interesting changes that you should probably know about!
1. Magic Kingdom Flyover express ramp to open next week
Back in 2016 Walt Disney World began construction on a flyover ramp that routes traffic directly from World Drive so that guests heading for the resort-area hotels can bypass the Magic Kingdom parking plaza altogether. And now it looks like this project is nearing completion, as beginning on Tuesday, October 16, a new overpass on South World Drive will connect guests directly to World Drive. With this new ramp, heading to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will now be able to continue onto Vista Boulevard via a right exit and drivers traveling west on Vista Boulevard will be able to access World Drive directly.
2. New parking garage to open next year at Disney Springs
If you have driven past Disney Springs recently you might have noticed that work is progressing rapidly on the new parking garage near the Casting building. And now it has been confirmed that this new parking garage will be opening next year. Disney Springs' third parking structure, which will be called "Lemon" will provide up to 3,000 additional parking spaces, and provide direct access to the shopping and entertainment district via elevated walkways.
