The train will directly transport guests from the Orlando International Airport to a stop in Disney Springs, which will be super helpful when the Magical Express service is discontinued in January 2022. While the train’s Disney Springs stop was originally due to open in 2023, it has been delayed to 2026. But now, construction has reached a BIG milestone!
ICYMI: a train is currently in the works that will connect the Orlando International Airport to Disney World!
It’s part of Brightline’s high-speed rail service, which is currently in development and will also travel to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and more. Although the train was originally targeting a 2023 opening date, it has been delayed to 2026. And now, we have an update on an alternate path for the train through Orlando.
Ever wanted to take a train from Orlando International Airport directly to Disney World? Well, eventually you might be able to! Brightline is currently working on plans for a train that is set to connect the airport and Disney Springs.
This train was originally targeting a 2023 opening date, but that has now potentially been pushed back all the way to 2026.

If all goes to plan, we could be riding a train from Orlando International Airport directly to Disney World in the future.
But, that’s the thing — there’s still a LOT left to plan. Recently, we shared that one division from the State of Florida essentially set a deadline for Brightlight to meet when it comes to some necessary agreements and plans for its route from the airport through a Disney station and on to Tampa. Today, we got an update on those plans, potential complications, and when the train to Disney World could be operating!
A few years from now, you could be hopping on a Brightline train from Orlando International Airport directly to Disney Springs!
Or, you might even take a train from Miami all the way to Disney. But, before that can happen, some important agreements need to be made. And Florida authorities have just set a deadline that Brightline needs to meet to make it all happen.
How do you get from the airport to Disney World? Take Disney’s Magical Express, hop in a taxi, book a rental car?
Well, the way you get to Disney World might be changing soon. Last year, Disney announced that its Magical Express transportation would be discontinued beginning in 2022. But, a Brightline train is set to connect Orlando International Airport to Disney Springs, and was originally targeting a 2023 opening date. It seems that opening date may now be delayed until 2026. But, how will you get yourself and ALL of your luggage from Disney Springs to your Disney hotel? Here are our thoughts.
Transportation is a BIG piece of any Disney World trip, and sometimes that includes getting to and from the airport.

Ah Disney Transportation.
From the monorail to the trains to the boats, getting around Disney World or Disneyland can (sometimes) be a delight (at least when you’re not running late for anything!). Now, you can show your love for Disney transportation with a NEW Wishables collection!
There are quite a few construction projects going on all over Disney World including TONS of work happening as part of the EPCOT Transformation, new stores and restaurants being built in Disney Springs, and los of construction going on near the TRON coaster.
It looks like Disney has been doing some work at the Main Street, U.S.A. train station in Magic Kingdom as well based on the big scrims we’ve seen there recently. But, as we walked into Magic Kingdom today, the train station was looking a bit different!
Ever wish you could just hop on a train from Orlando International Airport or even from Miami, Florida, and ride right over to Disney World?
A high-speed rail service is currently being built from South Florida to Orlando International Airport. Last year, there was some talk about Disney World potentially getting a direct train from the Orlando airport, and now a deal has been reached that will make that a reality!
