As much as we love taking the Magic Express from the Orlando International Airport, we’ve often thought, what if there was an even more magical way to get our vacation started faster?
You know, instead of waiting for the ground transportation service to load up, make multiple stops at resorts for other passengers, unload baggage… What if there was an even QUICKER and more effective means of shuttling you to Disney World so you could get your Disney trip moving!
A solution might not be as far off as you’d think! According to the Orlando Sentinel, Brightline (which is being renamed Virgin Trains USA) and executives at The Walt Disney Company are in “advanced talks about a station on or near theme-park property as part of a route to Tampa.”
Disney officials have responded, saying, “As the top vacation destination and largest single-site employer in the United States, Walt Disney World Resort is an obvious choice for a rail station between Orlando International Airport and Tampa.”
Could you imagine hopping off your flight and on to a train directly to Disney World?! So while this isn’t a go YET, both sides have agreed to begin talks to see what this could become. We’ll be watching this story closely to see how this plan for a new train station develops! This could totally revolutionize your future Disney World trips, so stay tuned!
