Magic Kingdom Area Roadways To Undergo Massive Overhaul and Expansion

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

On the heels of today’s news about a new vehicle entrance for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, permits have also been filed for a major revamp of the Magic Kingdom vehicle entrance area.


The plan would see the addition of roads that will go over the toll plaza area in both directions, bypassing them for easier access to and from the Magic Kingdom area resort hotels and backstage areas. The new road returning guests to World Drive going south would also help alleviate Seven Seas Drive traffic and provide a better traffic flow for some area cast members going home in the evening. Traffic on Vista Boulevard would also have easier access to World Drive in both directions.

Road work to alleviate traffic behind the park where Magic Kingdom cast members park is already ongoing and will be completed by the end of this Summer.


There is no word yet on when construction might begin, but this is expected to be the beginning of many changes to the Magic Kingdom vehicle entry plaza and parking area.
