The long-awaited extension to Floridian Way north of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is set to open next week. On July 10th, guests looking to traverse past the northern edge of Walt Disney World will no longer have to pass through backstage roadways.
Currently, guests have to drive through two lane backstage roads that are often congested at peak hours. In fact, Floridian Way, the backstage roadway north of Magic Kingdom, is shut down during many fireworks shows due to pyrotechnic launches.
Floridian Place will be a four-lane, two-way road to connect Floridian Way just north of the Grand Floridian and Reams Road by Disney University.
