Video: First Brightline Train Arrives at MCO

Florida’s train to Disney World hit a major milestone as it continues its progress from Miami to a future station at Disney Springs.

On Thursday, May 19, a Brightline Train finally arrived in the new station constructed at Orlando International Airport.

Check it out:

According to Orlando-area FOX35, the high-speed passenger rail line is currently doing test runs along the new corridor connecting Orlando to Miami and the rest of South Florida. Brightline report that the extension project is 80% done, with passenger service expected to begin next year.

Meanwhile, Brightline’s further extension to the Walt Disney World Resort is still making progress. Recently we at Disney Fanatic shared the news that a $1 billion proposal was put forward, which would work in part with Orlando’s local commuter rail, SunRail, to provide train service to Disney World as well as Universal Orlando Resort and International Drive.

While there is still no groundbreaking date set for the Disney World Station, Disney Fanatics can still be able to use Brightline to their advantage on their next Disney vacation. Brightline offers easy, reliable train-to-ship cruise transfers. This means that Orlando International Airport becomes a viable option for those going on a Disney Cruise Line adventure from Port Miami. There has also been talk, in the past, of Brightline adding a station stop in the area of Cocoa Beach, which could pose a great opportunity to those Disney Cruise Line passengers sailing out of Port Canaveral.

Brightline is a privately-held high-speed rail service that eventually will offer high-quality transportation connecting all of South and Central Florida from Tampa to Miami.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to monitor this story, and we will update our readers as more information comes to light.
