PHOTOS: Construction Progress on Walkway from Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort to Magic Kingdom

On a ride around Seven Seas Lagoon on the monorail Resort line, we spotted some progress on the construction of the new walkway that will connect Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Magic Kingdom.

It looks like a bridge will be going into this area, and as this is where the Electrical Water Pageant enters and exits the lagoon, it will probably be some sort of drawbridge to accommodate for the marine traffic.

Once completed, this long-awaited walkway will allow Guests to cross the canal and reach the Magic Kingdom by foot from the Grand Floridian and Polynesian Resorts, as well at the Transportation and Ticket Center. This will give Guests another transportation option on getting to and from Magic Kingdom, in addition to the ferry, boat, buses, and monorail, all of which can get lengthy lines.

There’s a really good view out of the windows of the monorail of some vertical construction progress on the side of the canal closest to Magic Kingdom. The first section of metal foundation work is being installed. For days, these metal sheets had been staged at the construction site, so it’s interesting to see them finally in place.

It remains to be seen when this project will be completed, but keep checking WDWNT for the latest updates!

Seems like this would be an important change to make if the monorails were about to be out of service for a while.

Wow, looks like it is a one-and-a-half mile walk from Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom. Not sure how many deluxe guests will want to hoof it all the way out there, especially if they have kids with them.
