Over the past several months, we’ve been keeping our eye on the work being done to connect Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa with Magic Kingdom via a new walkway and pedestrian bridge!
We hopped on the Monorail today to look at the progress, and it looks like it’s getting closer and closer to being complete!
The presumptive pedestrian bridge was installed last month, which makes this walkway look awfully close to being done!
The bridge continues on to a walkway which leads straight to Magic Kingdom! Once completed, all three of the Monorail resorts should be accessible to Magic Kingdom on foot.
On the other side of the bridge, we spotted a white tent which could potentially be some sort of security checkpoint or temperature screening location!
When we took a closer look at the tent, we saw that it was currently blocked off by a fence.
With Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa reopening to Guests on September 21, we might expect to see the walkway and pedestrian bridge being used to get to Magic Kingdom in the coming weeks! Since the Grand Floridian Villas have been open to Guests since June 22, it’s very possible we’ll see the walkway open even sooner!
Do keep in mind, Disney has not confirmed this as a pedestrian bridge. If they share any details, we will be sure to let you know.
