PHOTOS: Final Stretch of Construction Underway on Walkway Between Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom

Though Disney is currently prioritizing its construction projects, it looks like work on the pathway between Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom is full steam ahead as it gets ready to open.

On the end closest to the resort, everything seems to be done. As we noted in our last report, the path has lights installed to help guests find their way once the sun goes down.

Similarly, the swing-arm bridge has protective railing installed and landscaping, making this feel like a walk in the park… to get to and from the park.

The walkway continues to wind past shady trees that should provide some cover on sunny days.

With dirt already leveled out, it seems there’s only one small stretch left to work on.

Construction workers were out, and with guiderails marking the path, it seems like paving should be happening very soon.

The metal panel on the path as seen on the left side currently marks the border between the paved and unpaved sections.

As we approach the Magic Kingdom, all that looks to be left nearby is landscaping.

For those who like to take their time and take in the view (or just need to stop along the way), a bench is available.

Some construction fencing still stands as the path reaches the monorail station. But workers are on the job to get this all ready for guests. With the walkway and the new Resort Launch dock coming soon, there will be even more ways to get around Walt Disney World!

Been debating switching to GF from Contemporary for our 3 potential dates in Winter/Spring 2021. Finishing that walkway might seal the decision. The walking distance to/from the outer buildings at the GF to/from MK is actually slightly less than the same walk to/from garden buildings at the Contemporary.
