Work continues on the walkway that will connect the Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom

Select construction projects have slowly started resuming at Walt Disney World. That includes work on the new walkway that will connect the Grand Floridian Resort to the Magic Kingdom’s main entrance, giving guests an option to walk to the theme park rather than take the Monorail or a boat.

Crews have already installed a movable bridge that can connect the walkway or swing out of the way to allow for access to the canal that stores the Electrical Water Pageant.

The most recent development is the addition of pavement for the walkway itself leading from the Grand Floridian Resort.

Pavement can also be seen near the swinging bridge on both the Grand Floridian Resort side of the walkway and the portion that’s closer to the Magic Kingdom.

There’s still a decent amount of work left on this project, but Disney would be wise to try and have everything completed before the Magic Kingdom reopens on July 11. Giving guests an option to walk over to the theme park would help alleviate some of the crowding on the Monorail and make social distancing a bit easier.

This walkway will give Grand Floridian Resort guests a great new perk that’s currently only matched by the walkway from the Contemporary Resort. We look forward to it opening in the near future.
