PHOTOS, VIDEOS: Full Walking Tour of NEW Walkway Connecting Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the Magic Kingdom

Over a year after construction began, the walkway connecting Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has finally opened. This walkway allows guests staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to walk to and from the park instead of taking the Monorail or another form of transportation.

The second bridge can swing open and closed to allow boats and Electric Water Pageant floats in and out of the canal.

If you need to rest or want to look at the lake for a while, there is a bench before you reach the Magic Kingdom.

There are then social distancing markers leading up to a temperature check station.

When walking the opposite direction, there’s a sign next to the dock pointing to the walkway.

While both the dock and the walkway have been in the works for over a year, they will allow for more social distancing, which is a must during COVID-19 restrictions.

Some dirt areas still need to be filled in with grass.

This area, where construction vehicles entered and exited the walkway, also remains to be completed.

I really look forward to taking this walk. One of the great pleasures of the entire resort is finding places to go, explore and find new adventures.

So from there you could walk right to the contemporary resort if you had a dining reservation?
