Today as we took a spin on the monorail around the Seven Seas Lagoon, we saw some exciting progress on the bridge and walkway from Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to the Magic Kingdom.

Since our last check in, several elements have wrapped up and a few new ones have appeared.

The land on the side closest to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (toward the right in photos) was flattened and cleared after the rotary and bridge were installed.

Today we saw a pickup truck parked on the land, as well as a few vehicles and some workers looking quite busy.

The bridge itself has been securely in place for a while now and still looks pristine.

On the other side of the canal closest to the Magic Kingdom, a large mound of dirt has been piled up to help begin the walkway.

Due to the recent rains, part of the dirt path is flooded.

Small piles of Walk Around the World bricks are stacked off to the sides of the path, getting rained on.

The massive pile of discarded bricks still sits off to the side. It does seem to be getting smaller, but there is no sign of where the bricks may have gone.

Be sure to check back often with WDW News Today for even more future updates on the status of this bridge and walkway!

They are being used for skeet shooting.
