PHOTOS: Pathway Connecting Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom Almost Complete

Construction has been moving quickly on the pathway connecting Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to the Magic Kingdom. The sidewalk and bridge have been done for a while and shrubbery was recently planted on either side of the bridge.

The Grand Floridian side of the path still needs streetlights, but other than that, it seems to be done.

Concrete bases are in place awaiting the streetlights.

The Magic Kingdom side of the bridge is complete, with shrubbery, trees, and lights.

Closer to Magic Kingdom, this dirt area has been walled off as construction finishes.

The rest of the sidewalk is now blocked off as it reaches Magic Kingdom. Instead, guests will walk up a ramp that takes them into the monorail station.

According to a Cast Member, this metal ramp is temporary until construction is completed on the nearby dock, which is supposed to open later this fall.

At the top of the ramp is a temporary temperature screening tent. Guests will go through temperature screening, enter the monorail station, and then walk down to Magic Kingdom.

It seems like this pathway is ready to open almost any day now. Are you excited to be able to walk back and forth between the Grand Floridian and Magic Kingdom.

Yes! I know it is just a walkway, but I *love* the concept and am so glad they are going forward with it. Walk from Contemporary all the walk around to the Poly! Love it!

I’m wondering when we’ll see the first wedding precession cross the bridge to the Magic Kingdom after getting married at the Disney Wedding Chapel. I could imagine some stunning photos on the walk through the Grand Floridian and from the water at the bride and groom cross the bridge and then even more photos in front of the MK entrance.

So you have to go through the Monorail Station? What about closing time when there’s a line waiting for the monorail? I would think a dedicated approach would make more sense.
