We previously shared the exciting news that Disney and Brightline have announced they have entered into an agreement to construct a train station at Disney Springs. Now, we are learning there is a potential timetable for the Disney Springs train station!
As shared by Orlando Business Journal: “Brightline has set a potential timetable for the completion of its Walt Disney World Resort connection. The Miami-based intercity rail provider in its November monthly ridership report said it wants to start revenue service on the connection during the second half of 2023.”
The Brightline station is intended to provide a convenient travel option between Walt Disney World Resort and Brightline stations at Orlando International Airport (OIA), Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and planned stations in Aventura, Boca Raton and Port Miami.
The design concept for the proposed station at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort includes a lobby on the ground level, passenger facilities and an upper level train platform. The proposed location would be in close proximity to Walt Disney World Resort’s four theme parks, two water parks and more than 25 hotels.

We are excited for the possibility of this new option of transportation coming to Walt Disney World!
